Separation of Church and State

My gas station has a certificate hanging on the wall that says:

"My gas station is hereby granted a license for the sale of frozen desserts, ice cream mix, confectionery soda water or fruit on the lord's day."

I guess "the lord's day" should be capitalized, but every other letter is capitalized, so I didn't bother.

I looked up "the lord's day." It means Sunday.

I think this certificate is pretty bizarre. Not only "the lord's day" thing, but why would they need a license to sell this stuff on one particular day? Shouldn't there be a license to sell it in general? I am too lazy to look and find out. Maybe Massachusetts has an antiquated law left over from the time before Noah?

I think that you aren't allowed to sell liquor around here on Sunday, but ice cream? Is eating ice cream on Sunday really a problem for religious nitwits?

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

And I haven't even posted the info on the website yet.
















Actually, I have no idea how many submissions there have been so far. Andersen Prunty hasn't told me. I know there has been at least one. I am sure that one story is $100 times better than yours. Unless it is not. But it probably is because you probably wrote your story when you were sober because you have a breathalyser on your computer and shit.

I don't have to like it. The other guy who is doing the anthology has to like it.
