Did you know that God forbids the tying of shoelaces on Saturdays? Or that humans emit a colorful aura that can be discerned only with a Third Eye? That bountiful harvest requires the flinging of a live goat from a church bell tower? That instead of wishing upon a star, we can wish upon a...cow? Well into the 21st century, our species continues to participate in beliefs and customs that seem more suited to the Bronze Age than the Information Age, some of which involve poisonous snakes, holy smoke, urine bubbles, crystals, tarot cards, aliens, costumed virgins, and, of course, an offering plate. Join Seth Andrews for a random romp across the planet and a humorous look at some of humanity's Sacred Cows.

A layman’s trip around the world and an outside look into its unusual traditions- Seth takes us on a journey into the wacky and bizarre with a good dose of humor. There was more than one occasion where I found myself laughing out loud. Seth’s narration is perfect, and I’ve listened to this book a few times over now. It’s clear he had fun making it, and he has a gift for storytelling. Worth the price.
An add for audible at the beginning? I paid for this and it's a little frustrating to have to listen to a commercial.
