Bow Down Before the One You Serve

The City of Philadelphia, acting out of reverence, fear, or possibly in the hope of a bountiful harvest, proclaimed yesterday Burro Hall Day. With money collected a quarter at a time by the city's public schoolchildren, city fathers erected a five-story-high Mexican Burro made of solid gold covered in colorful tissue paper, in the style of a piñata. Citizens were invited to worship the golden ass throughout the day and into the night.

The Burro, normally a jealous and vengeful god, declared Himself pleased and at 6:34 a.m. returned the sun to the sky for another day.

Truly, the Burro can be a taskmaster.

Yea, the post is two years old but that doesn't change the fact.
