Virgin Mary Appears on Los Angeles Bus

     Traffic was heavy.  I was late.  The approaching light was green, but the moron in front of me was braking!  I cursed.   The light changed: yellow.  The moron's brake lights: red.  I squeal to a stop, while the people in the next lane speed through the stale yellow light.  "They won't be late.  Bastards," I curse.  My thoughts spiral out of control.  My life is a mess.  I'm a tardy loser.  The meeting will start without me.  I'll be shunned.  I'll lose my self-confidence, my hope, and be a failure for the rest of my life. 

     Then, I see her, on the side of a Los Angeles city bus: the Virgin Mary.  An apparition!

     She has returned only for me, to let me know that all is well in the universe.   She has revealed herself that all may know the comedic power of hypocrisy, Catholic hospitals, adultery, and prescription drug addiction.

The "Virgin" Jackie is the one hypocrite you can't help but worship for an hour a week.
