The Salem Witch Trials

(a retelling by Mayor Gia)

In the spirit of Halloween, I’ve decided to retell the Salem Witch Trials. 

Back in 1692, a couple of girls decided it would be fun to start spreading foul and odious lies about people in their village.








 Poor Gia was accused of witchcraft, and brought before a judge.  The judge also happened to be her Boyfriend.  He was somewhat intimidated by her and her trendy hat and multiple cats.





Me, bitter? What?


So poor Gia was burned at the stake.

And Boyfriend thought he was free.


But Boyfriend was not that lucky.







So that’s how I like to think the Salem Witch Trials happened. I like this version much better than the real story, where a bunch of innocent women were murdered because bitches be cray.

  1. Sounds right to me. It would have been great if one was a witch like that. I recently heard that witches weren't burned in Salem, they just simply hanged them. Even more gruesome. I bet the trials stopped because dudes started looking around and realized, "Oh, there's now a 50:1 ratio of dudes to ladies. Good thing we don't know what 'gay' means yet in our Puritanical context." At least that's what I picture.

  2. And Salem lived from tourism since then.

  3. I was amazed at how calm Salem Gia was with being burned...not even a whimper. But then, she turned out to be Witch Gia. So that's cool.

    "Excuse. You" was my favourite part :)

  5. Yes, this is exactly how it happened. I should know . . . I'm a witch. I survived all of that drowning/burning crap. And pointy hats WERE trendy!

  6. History and the Bible are so much better from your p.o.v.

  10. I wonder at what point they considered, "Gee, this evil creature that can apparently fly and cast spells isn't even TRYING to stop itself from burning or hanging. That seems kind of odd."

  11. You may want to throw his penis into the fire immediately, just to make sure he's not a warlock. It may be his um, magic wand and all that...

  16. Don't fuck with a woman on her period. That's my interpretation anyway.
