Sorry About the Verbal Domestic Abuse

July 1, 1965
Many consider the story of Samson and Delilah to be a cautionary tale about hanging out with outsiders and foreigners. The Bible seems full of stories like that. "We love prostitutes. They just better not be from the other side of the river!"

Was Samson supposed to be an ugly meathead doof? Most statues and paintings I looked up show him as handsome and muscular. This interpretation is...not that.

"I hope Mama wasn't too terrible yesterday. If only there was some way we could just tell her not to come over unless she can be nicer. Oh, well, I guess there's no way we can do that. We're stuck with her."
