Oh. Oh wow.

Haven't really visited that story since Sunday school, where what I remember was "Samson was really strong until that evil wicked bad Delilah cut off his hair", so it was never one of my favorites to begin with.

Now I'm kinda tempted to write a Samson-and-Delilah piece where Delilah, instead of being paid to find out Samson's secret, does it of her own free will because, y'know, he's going around murdering people for their robes and maybe taking away his strength will keep him from being a problem anymore.

Could be interesting...

boy, you can't beat the bible for violence. I'm tellin' ya. And my memory of Samson and Delilah was exactly the same. Samson was just going along, minding his own strong business, you know, pulling temples down and stuff, when this chick comes along and for no reason what so ever, cuts off his hair and takes away his strength.

wow, I just realized how horribly misogynistic that whole bit was.

I had no idea it was that bloody.

I did like his writing tho. Very funny. I've always loved his columns.
