Sound Advice

Philippines Government health officials are warning the devoutly religious

to get tetanus vaccinations before they flagellate themselves and are nailed to crosses, and to practise good hygiene.

Those crazy Muslim self-mutilators. Oh, I mean Christian.

The health department has strongly advised penitents to check the condition of the whips they plan to use to lash their backs, the Manila Times newspaper reports.
They want people to have what they call “well-maintained” whips.

And they advise that the nails used to fix people to crosses must be properly disinfected first. Often people soak the nails in alcohol throughout the year.
