What If It happened This Way?

It's the same old story. Well ... Maybe, maybe not.

What if the English defeated the colonial armies in the Revolutionary War?

What if the Axis had defeated the Allies in WWII?

What if Eve had instead shoved the apple down the snake's throat?

What if anybody really cared what Oprah had to say?

Those are some terrifying thoughts, are they not? It just shows how a few insignificant events here and there can and probably did affect the outcome of history as we know it.

What if some event in the near future somehow affected the space time continuum? What if that event occurs in February of 2009, such as the time when all television broadcasts are no longer in analog but in a digital format? What event in the past, if altered, would have a dramatic result other than the way it actually happened?

How would we be celebrating Christmas if the events of the first Christmas had not happened when and how we have come to accept the story?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The scene: Liverpool, England
Three young lads are following a strange spotlight moving in a westerly direction in the sky. It stops and shines down upon the stage of club. A young woman has given birth to a baby right on the dance floor. The infant, wrapped in a tie-dye shirt is sleeping on a snare drum.

The three young men begin singing, "All You Need Is Love." The infant, who will be known as Jesus Starky begins beating on the drum. The religion to be known as "Beatlemania" takes the world by storm.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~OR~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The scene: Tabasco, Mexico
Three caballeros on burros are bearing gifts of pesos, burritos and chili powder heading to Rosie's cantina where it was announced that Jesus Pedro Juan Ramirez Rodriquez, Jr. had been born while the mother and father had been dining on tortillas and salsa.

Years later to continue the practice of gift giving, a portly man with a buckboard and a team of eight tiny burros would appear on the night before Christmas. He will be known as Santa Anna Claus.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~OR~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What if:
I simply end this silly blog theme and be happy with the way things did turn out?
And What if:
I just called it a night?

And what if the ACLU demanded that I stop being greedy and mean-spirited, and send what little money I have to the suffering scammers?

Skunk,

That's the target I initially had in mind for Eve.

Bronxbt,

Ah, I didn't notice they all had cameras. I was shooting for the the cat because I thought it was the cutest pic.
