The Tower of Babel

Brueghel's Tower of Babel
There is always a danger of copy-cat crimes. You know the argument. You cannot have mad blood crazed killing on television, or else everyone will go off and kill their friends in a horrible mirror image of the crime they had seen. Or that terrible series of cases when boys and girls from  all over the world started to levitate and turn their friends into cats and the like after the release of Harry Potter.

Cat in spectacles

So imagine my horror when I saw that the boys had listened to the Old Terstament stories that I had been telling them. Of course they being boys, they had conflated the stories of human sacrifice, the Towel of Babel and a bit of lying down.

This modern day horror must stop. I'm going to start a campaign.
