Once there was a student named Putitoff who would never work in class and would make all kinds of excuses for not doing assignments on time, or never, if he could get away with it. His family spoiled him, nevertheless, so he had a terrible attitude, and would always ask, “What’s the point?”
Well, one day, on his way to school, another student lost control of his Hyundai and careened into Putitoff’s Audi, and he was knocked unconscious.
In that smashed up state, he went up to heaven,…

To construct a religion

|My liturgy would employ
Images of sousing,
