Garden of Eden Serpent Denies Tempting Adam and Eve, Thus Causing Fall of Man

“The Bible story is just a hoax. I didn’t cause the fall of man – it’s fake news. Apples for all!” – Belly-Crawling Snake

HELL – The Biblical serpent claimed last night that it was not responsible for the catastrophic Fall of Man recorded in Genesis.

Fall of Man, serpent“Wasn’t me,” the Serpent hissed emphatically in an interview aired on Megyn Kelly on Sunday.

“Sure, it might have been me, but it also could have been a lot of other fabled beasts. The Chimera. The Kraken. Even a 400 lb gorilla sitting in a white house somewhere.

“Yes, a 6000-year old tradition and seventeen US televangelists have all blamed us, really it was only three or four, but no one really knows. Coulda been a few private, patriotic demons. Coulda been the Koran or even the Egyptian Book of the Dead. I mean, were you there?”

Acknowledging multiple stories identifying it as the talking snake responsible for all human sin, the Serpent said that the “unsubstantiated allegations” were based on “a single anonymous Biblical source” whose “unreliability” had been proved many times before.

“Remember when they said that the beasts of the field were created before Adam? Then they said Adam came first and was made — get this! — outa mud. Then that the day was separated from the night before the Sun was made. Then that Eve was made out of Adam’s rib, and what a mess that turned out to be! Even Donald Trump opposed it at the time.”

The Serpent also flatly denied interfering in human affairs. Hell had “absolutely” not been responsible for Hitler, Genghis Khan and even the Trump family, “though in their case I can understand why some people might think so. However, you useful idiots brought them on yourselves and will just have to get rid of them in your own way. Just don’t send you-know-who down to us, thank you. Ivanka maybe,” he added with a leer.

The Serpent then went onto the attack, noting that people haven’t been so innocent in their dealings with Hell either. “Holier-than-thou types have repeatedly denigrated us and tried to interfere in our way of afterlife,” he said, with a pained flicker of his tongue. “We even hosted Jesus for a few days, and what thanks did we ever get for that?”

The Serpent wound up by proposing a joint Earth-Hell Sin Management program. Both sides would contribute equally and millennia of mutual suspicion and mistrust would finally be resolved.

”Apples for all!” he said, noting that with himself and Donald Trump in charge of human evil, “sin will be handled in the most secure and transparent way possible. Taxes not included, of course.”

Michael was born in South Africa at the height of the apartheid era He quickly became involved in the underground resistance movement, knew Nelson Mandela and other prominent revolutionaries, some of whom later moved into privileged positions formerly occupied by whites. After several exciting escapes, he was forced to flee the country in disguise. He successfully made his way to the UK and gained his PhD at Cambridge on a university scholarship, He then pursued the dual career of college professor and social revolutionary, provoking academic and political mayhem wherever he went. Having thus failed miserably at both politics and education, he now cynically rails like Diogenes at the foibles of mankind in bitter satires and faintly subtly edgy political cartoons. History will, however absolve him. In 2006 he discovered a new Shakespeare play, but it's going to take a new generation to acknowledge it. Check out his website, Editorial and Political Cartoons.
