I thought it was us Freemasons who sacrificed goats?


This Reuters news story is just in from Nepal:

Officials at Nepal's state-run airline have sacrificed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, following technical problems with one of its Boeing 757 aircraft, the carrier said Tuesday.

Nepal Airlines, which has two Boeing aircraft, has had to suspend some services in recent weeks due to the problem.

The goats were sacrificed in front of the troublesome aircraft Sunday at Nepal's only international airport in Kathmandu in accordance with Hindu traditions, an official said.

I suppose that after the goats were sacrificed the passengers all gave the pilot the thumbs up sign. I know that would put my troubled mind at ease.

All I know is that Baphomet is going to be really annoyed by this and I'd stay far away from this particular airport for the foreseeable future.
