The 3 Daughters of King Coluath O'Hara - Page 22

Kim Foxx Afforded Preferential Treatment to Justin Smollett. She sure did. That Kim Foxx abused her position so she could obtain money, favors, access, or all three. Smollett's family is a fairly well-connected acting dynasty.

She misrepresented her actions to the public. She said she had recused herself, but this was (the public learned later) a "colloquial" recusal, which meant that she still directed her office's actions regarding the case.

Because hey! Why wouldn't she help out someone who could invite her to Hollywood parties? Sure, if it means clobbering justice from behind with a two-by-four (real hard, since justice is blind), why not just make this horrible exercise of power?

And then why not accuse people of "racism" when they call you a fat ugly blubberbutt who used her office to pervert justice? Why not? No one wants to be known as a "racist"! And so she, having pulled the race card from her sweaty, salty folds, won't ever be called upon by the media companies to defend her decision. As always, the strong do as they will, and the weak will suffer as they must.

Anyway I hope you enjoy this week's episode. The above text is an excerpt from a completely fictional short story that has no intended similarity to any persons living or dead, or any institutions, other than for purposes of satire.

Fat ugly blubberbutt.

Comic transcript

You're reading a page from a comic book based on the ancient Irish Myth the Three daughters of King Coluath O'hara. The translation and story was from Jeremiah Curtin's book Irish Myths and Fairy Tales but don't go and spoil the comic by reading it. I'll be posting a page a week, and the first page is here. Please let me know in the comments if you want to buy a copy and end the suspense, and if enough people want it then hey I'll publish it. Thanks!

The next day the woman of the house was washing clothes, for that was how she made a living. The princess fell to and helped her with the work. And I'll point out here that this is a good thing for a princess to do, to help out like that without being asked. Washing clothes? Can you imagine? I don't know if this was a comment on royalty added into later versions, that their duty is to serve their people instead of rule them. Maybe.

In the course of that day the Queen of Tir Na n Og and the husband of the princess were married.

Near the castle, and not far from the washer-woman's, lived a henwife with two ragged little daughters. One of them came around the washer-woman's house to play.

The child looked so poor and her clothes were so torn and dirty that the princess took pity on her, and cut the clothes with the scissors which she had. That moment the most beautiful dress of cloth of gold ever seen on woman or child in that kingdom was on the henwife's daughter. Again the third daughter of the King Coluath O'hara is called upon to heal people, and she does. There may be some extra significance in the gold clothing. In fact, I think this is the first mention of "gold" in this story. Traditionally gold represents a lot of things that humans desire for their own spirits, e.g. permanence, perfection, virtue. That the king's daughter brings this is significant (but then again she's in Tir Na n Og, and not in our realm).

When she saw what she had on, the child ran home to her mother as fast as ever she could. The henwife asked, "Who gave you that dress?" Interesting to think that "Henwife" has the literal meaning of someone who keeps poultry, as well as another potential meaning of herbalist / healer / old woman in the woods (along the lines of the villain in Hansel and Gretel).
