Overheard: Thumping


As the streetcar stopped for a red light, I overheard an American Fundamentalist Christian ranting in Dundas Square all outfitted with an amp and a headset mic.

American And YEW-AH are filled with SIN-AH –

Teenage Boy, reasonably No, I’m not.

American, completely thrown YEW ARE FILLED WITH –

Teenage Boy Nope.

American Uh – we are ALL-AH filled with –

Teenage Boy Do you think Christianity is at the head of a hierarchy of all religions?

American, stupefied Hierarchy… I… wait, what?

The streetcar pulled away and I didn’t get to hear the rest, but man. Imagine if ALL THE TEENAGERS used their powers for good and not evil.
