    In a way, I think there's some beauty to it, as it clashes with the western's view of mortality and death. There're lots of other wacky saints, Death has the right to be worshipped too.

    Hmm. Could be me, except less dead. Very commendable picture, though.

    I used to be friends with a junkie squatter who was full of tall tales. In one of them he found a figurine or candle or whatever of Santa Muerte in one of those Chinese second-hand shops where you purchase Mogwais. He brought said idol back to his room in the top floor of the squat and began making squat candles. An accident occurred with the molten wax, sending him to the ER. Lying there in the hospital bed, he couldn't help but think, "Thanks a lot, St. Death." But that night in the hospital, some rivals committed arson on the squat. The fire was so severe that when some of his friends, unaware that he was away, tried to rush to the top floor to save him, were unable to get past the smoke.
