Because life is hard, and the week is long, the Magic Dog has suggested that we end it with a little humor. Possibly tasteful, possibly not. Enjoy. And wear rubber-soled shoes, in case of lightning bolts.

And on the seventh day God rested from all he had done. But then Adam awoke, and aroseth on the Wrong Side of the Bed, and he was full wroth, and sayeth unto the Lord God, “My head Splitteth, and I would thou wouldst strike it from my shoulders. Why didst thou not tell me that Wine is a Mocker and Strong Drink is Raging before I polished off that last bottle of tequila?”

And the Lord repented what He had done, and arose and created Hawaii, and planted a coffee plantation in the midst of it, and harvested the beans thereof, and created an Espresso Machine so tall and shining it reached unto heaven, and Adam cursed and spake wrathfully again, and demanded a Hair of the Dog, but the Dog heard Adam and was sore afraid, and fled to the End of the World, and hid himself in a cleft in the rocks thereof.

And God spake, and behold, the Espresso Machine brought forth a Large Cup of Strong Coffee, and God blended it with milk, and steam, and whipped milk to foam, and created cinnamon for an Garnishment, to please the palette, and said,

“Behold, thou shalt call its name, “Venti Double-shot Cappuccino,” and it shall be a token of the covenant between me and thee, that Strong Drink shall not triumph on the Morning After, and mankind shall not perish from the face of the earth.

And then God gaveth the Venti Double-shot Cappuccino to Adam, and sayeth unto him, “Drink ye all of it, and trouble me no more for yet awhile. I was resting. It’s supposed to be my Day Off.”

And Adam sayeth unto the Lord, “What about breakfast? And what am I supposed to do whilst Thou are Resting? Tellst Thou me that! Thou has not provided me with Television, nor with Cable, nor yet with an Helpmeet to be fruitful and multiply or at least while away the weekend morning hours, nor even with ESPN. What about the Sports Section? Or the Funnies? Tell me Thou at least gettest the Funnies.”

And the Lord God repented in His heart that he had made Man, and in desperation made Woman to keep man occupied and out of the Lord God’s hair for five frigging minutes.

This is mine, all mine.
If you’d like one of your own, pop on over to the store
and pick up a mug, t-shirt, or poster (you might need to
scroll down to find the posters; there’s a lot of stuff in here).
