Bible II

“And then he slew all the men, and all the women, and all the children, and all the cattle, and the sheep and the goats and the fruit bats and the weevils and the turnips and the ears of corn.” Jasfoup closed the book. “And then he cut off all their foreskins and took them to the King of Persia and married the princess.”

“That’s horrible,” said Lucy with the conviction of a four year old. “He should have left one last man standing.”

“Why?” said Jasfoup. “This is Biblical canon, you know. You can’t go around changing the endings of bible stories.”

“If he leaves one man,” said Lucy, “they can make a sequel.”
