The Pilgrim 1%

Are You ready for this? I teach art at an elementary school and we’ve been doing pilgrims… so I have a student we’ll call him Timmy (names have been changed) he is coloring his pilgrim red… this is what followed.

Me: Timmy? I see you are coloring your pilgrim red, Pilgrims usually wore basic black and white clothing…

Timmy: I’m making an EVIL pilgrim. Evil pilgrims wear Red, black is for good guys but my pilgrim is evil… and nothing is more evil than fire, so he has FIRE that comes out of the top of his hat. He is RICH he has a billion dollars in a stack and red eyes.

Me: *speechless*

It occurred to me later that this HAD to be the 1% of pilgrims as I had not ever heard of Evil pilgrims who were also billionaires… hence I am sharing this information with you. Thank you Timmy for enlightening all of us to the dangers of Thanksgiving history… it makes the 99% of Pilgrims seem a little less heinous in the light of this new information.

Happy Occupy Thanksgiving!

Day 15 - Peter Solax by George Ward

Peter Solax was an ordinary woodsman until he discovered a magical axe stuck in a tree.  All thoughts of the axe being normal disappeared when it demanded souls in exchange for it’s power.  Fearing the axe might fall into the wrong hands, Peter decided to accept it’s demands and went searching for the souls of the wicked to satisfy it’s thrust.  He received the name Solax because the souls of those he defeated could be seen in the blade of the axe.  His greatest fear is the the axe’s original owner might appear and demand the axe back.  Anyone who would create such an axe must be a dangerous person indeed.
