I was going through my medicine cabinet looking for my Lithium so that I would have it with me when I evacuated and fled from the incoming category 5 hurricane when I heard the news man on the radio say, "We have just gotten word in that a nuclear warhead launched from the Soviet Union has detonated somewhere within the proximity of Washington, DC. No word as of yet what the damage report is or what retaliatory measures the Unite States will take; for those of you who are evacuating the gulf coast and fleeing from the hurricane, God be with you, you're on your own."

I immediately fell to the floor and began screaming at the top of my lungs, "Why didn't I vote for the other guy? Why didn't I vote for the other guy?"

Just then, a rock came flying through my window followed by a voice that beckoned me outside. I moved over to the window and peeked out from behind a curtain. The voice called out again to me, "Hurry, come outside and witness the power of God!"

I left the front room of my trailer house and went outside and saw thousands of people in my front yard on their knees paying homage to an apparition in the sky.

I looked upward and saw a giant hand made out of clouds beginning to form some sort of celestial gesture in the sky. Ooh's and ah's started coming from the crowd as the hand of God created the symbolic sign from heaven. The clouds forming the hand rolled and tucked until the sign was finished. The message from heaven was an open palm hand with the middle finger and thumb extended and the other fingers neatly folded over.

A Chaplin in the crowd immediately interpreted the sign and testified that God was very angry with us.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
