A Kind Woman Anointed Jesus Christ
Since Jesus Christ was a distinguished guest,
A generous woman anointed Him
With perfumed water. He said that she did
Not make a mistake. Her critics were wrong.
Saint John Chrysostom pointed out that she
Did not do her good deed before a large crowd.
It did not take place where it could be seen.
The event took place in a private house.
My father made a grand exit. At the
end of an event, he used to say, “My
wife and I are leaving. She needs time to
give me a massage and to draw my bath.”
The two-thousand-year-old man, Mel Brooks, said
the greatest invention was Liquid Prell.
