Episode 50 - Religion Of Flies

Come unto us, all ye who do not get, and we will give unto you the bread of rage.  On this 50th episode, lay your issues at our feet and submit yourselves to our rantings, and we will lead you on the path of grabby sharks as we enlighten you on the following issues:

-Biting Your Tongue
-Sudden Infestations of Flies

I dare say that nearly all of the humans born, from the beginning of time, have been born with a tongue.  I'm sure there have been some exceptions due to birth defects, and it's true that some folks lose their tongue to accident or disease during their lifetime, but for the vast majority of us, we have a tongue from the day we're born to the day we die.  For the most part, this is good; tongues have many uses, from eating to speaking to cunnilingus.  The Bible even chimes in on the tongue, saying that a man who can control his tongue can control his entire life.  But, even the most skilled of tongue controllers cannot avoid occasionally biting their tongue, and in that moment of shame and failure, we all fall to the same pit of shame and pestilence.  And speaking of pestilence . . .

Everyone gets a pest in their house occasionally.  Good housekeeping and a healthy dose of vigilance can go a long way towards keeping the unwanted visitors to a minimum.  But what are you to do when you're suddenly inundated with uncountable hordes of insects?  That's the question Buck had last week when his house was suddenly inhabited by hundreds of flies, with no explanation of how they got in or why they came.  With a can of spray in one hand and a fly-swatter in the other, and terror threatening to grip his life and home, Buck fought valiantly against the buzzing interlopers, only to discover that the army of irritants was merely the scout party of a full-fledged invasion force waiting on his front porch.  It was only after a miracle from the Almighty that the unclean ones left the Buck house.  And speaking of the Almighty . . .
There are lots of questions that are difficult to answer, but demand that we search.  Where the universe came from.  Was it always there?  What is the meaning of existence?  Each of us, in some way or another, chooses a system of belief that attempts to address these questions.  Some of us find a form of faith by which we derive meaning and guidance to govern our lives.  But when your belief gives way to a rote set of rules, what you have is a religion.  Religion is kinda like faith, but without life, without love, and without power.  Religion is the empty shell of dead faith.  Both Tab and Buck give their thoughts on both the merits and value of legitimate faith, and the destruction caused by wanton religion.

Stove transforms, and Sage flips his lid.  What did Tab set on fire in his appartment?  You'll have to listen to this week's episode to find out!
