Witchcraft Today book, Richard Littler, Scarfolk
Last week, I heard on NPR that beenies were the fashion thing for men now. I thought beenies were the hats that looked like yarmulkes and had propellers on top. I was told, “No, they are knit caps.” Followed by, “Boy, I wish I lived in your world.” I assume that means Pleasantville. I wish that were true. I’d like to say I laughed only at episodes of I Love Lucy. But something is wrong with me. I needed to be told that Zero Dark Thirty was not a comedy, and laughter was not appropriate during torture scenes. Who knew?
I’d like to live in Pleasantville, but one of my favorite places is Scarfolk, UK. It’s a wonderful town in North West England that hasn’t progressed beyond 1979. Richard Littler’s genius website about Scarfolk describes it this way: Here in Scarfolk, pagan rituals blend seamlessly with science. ”Visit Scarfolk today. Our number one priority is keeping rabies at bay.” It looks like a nice place to live, except it’s in northwest England, which means it’s cold, and rains, and gets dark early, and people are probably sick a lot, and not tan. But it looks like they have a handle on the rabies issue. I’ve collected some of the wonderful collateral produced below.
