Another classic strip today, then back to new ones next weekend. If you follow the comments here on Moth & Ethan, you might have noticed that our friend @AdmiralHalsey mentioned a week ago that Lot’s wife didn’t quite make the escape with the rest of the family. We’re not sure how far they got, but traditionally, this horrifying scene in Genesis 19:26 took place near the Dead Sea.
And if you didn’t grow up near a farm, or ever go hunting, or happen to observe at a zoo, a lot of animals are drawn to salt licks or mineral licks as a source of nutrition. So Moth’s disgusting reaction is really a natural instinct. At least that’s what we can tell ourselves.
