The Ages of Sin, 1635
Turtles will give you salmonella. It has been proven. Do not touch them. Ever.
Anyway, The Ages of Sin pairs certain (non-deadly, as far as I can tell) sins with an illustrative metaphorical image and explanation. Something about this one spoke to me, maybe because I do think turtles are like walking buckets of disease, maybe because I like that the man seems to have a deep-seated vendetta against them, and maybe because this very scene has most likely been played out many a time, "'cause turtles is goooood eatin'. "
In other news, Seamus Heaney got my special treatment over at Literary Makeovers!!!
