It happened in the years when vegans and anti car people were in
power in North America it was decided to outlaw the automobile.
Every driver had to drive off a cliff and into an asphalt pit. When
they got out of there, and since everybody in USA can drive, even
old women and children, the nation was tarred. It was noticed that
God, Jesus, his coteries of seraphs and the second layers of angels,
the cherubs were un-tarred. How can one worship the un-blotted?
People turned away from Christianity. As no image of Mohamed
existed it was decided he too had been tarred, but it had been
kept a secret. Overnight, Americans turned into virtuous Moslems
and USA became the most powerful Islamic nation in the world.
