In the beginning was the word...

In the end was the curse.

A starving Kenyan woman placed a powerful tribal curse on God, accusing him of sending famine.... "Whoever brought this famine, let him perish," the woman chanted, striking a cooking pot with a stick. "She accomplished the feat at 10 a.m. and waited for the results, but God's wrath struck at night. She died peacefully in her sleep," the Kenya Times newspaper said.

Strange. I've been cursing God for decades. I better get hold of that Kenyan incantation. Do I need to learn Swahili? ... Oh! I need a pot. Would that be aluminum or stainless steel or cast iron? Anything particular in the brew?

By the way, I am absolutely certain that hunger had nothing to do with her demise.
