Mother Theresa Playing Lawn Jarts By Brian Mallman

God: I’m done with humans. They’re too much work. I just failed to stop some dude in ankle socks and flip flops from puting Meow Mix in his bosses sheet cake .

Satan: I gave him that idea… Classic.

God: You won. The overgrown frat boy did it. Take a victory lap. I’m done trying to redeem the souls of Fox News-loving armchair Klansmen.
