A Test of Faith

I am not a religious man. I’m an athiest in the sense that I’m not going to believe in God until there’s evidence of him existing. No, the universe existing doesn’t count. However, I like to have a smidgen of faith in humanity in general. So then Lanuria has to go and make me question everything with this.

This is either the saddest thing I’ve seen since the bear having a birthday party (which I won’t post here because I don’t like making readers cry) or else the greatest piece of satire since Swift.

There’s an adage known as Poe’s Law which states that “Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of Fundamentalism that SOMEONE won’t mistake for the real thing.” This technique for MAKING ONE’S SELF BLEED is a perfect correlary.

Either someone is so obsessed with Edward Cullen that they have drawn blood in an attempt to sate him, or someone is a stellar writer and their capacity for satire far outweighs mine. Either way, I’m going to go drink heavily now.

    Curse you, Lan! Curse you! I’m going to go weep now.
