Divine drop

Off-location, but too exquisitely grisly to omit:

In September, when the 13th of 27 condemned men was hanged, the rope snapped and the prisoner landed on the floor and shouted: “God saved me!”

He lay on the ground praying and shouting while prison guards and the hangman discussed whether there had been divine intervention and the execution should be halted.

Eventually, they agreed that a new rope should be rigged and the man was dragged wailing up the steps once again. The second time, the rope held.

Some people would say that the Bible is better than the Koran because it leaves us in no doubt that God hasn’t got a particularly strong command of the plot, but they will burn in Hell.
