Fallaparticus 8:15-18 (New Minnesota Version)

15 But when Pharaoh Pawlenty-kamun saw that there was hollering from the Taxpayers’ League and Marty Seifert and his base, he hardened his heart and would not listen to Vanasek and Erhardt, just as the LORD had said.

16 So the LORD decided it was time to show Pawlenty-kamun, Phil Krinkie, Marty Seifert and their minions how vulnerable they’d made the state’s infrastructure, by dumping a largish amount of water on a big chunk of it.

17 And lo, after this second plague, Pharaoh realized that he’d better call a special session and at least pass the gas tax increase tout de suite, or he could forget about being on any presidential tickets next year.

18 But there was still the danger that Seifert and his supply-side magicians would harden Pharaoh’s heart again, as they had so many times in the past, and so no one was releasing their held breath just yet.
