I'm BATMA-- I mean Burdman Picture

"If God meant me to sail," Murciel announced, "she would not have given me wings." Said wings stretched out in emphasis and caught a sudden gust of wind. He staggered back a full foot before he could furl them close again, and scowled at Hope's laugh.

"Oh, come now, Mercy," Faith said. "it's not as if you use them for whatever God DID give them to you for. You don't even show them half the time."

"At least here you can be a backup in case the real sails get torn," Hope added.

"Oh, ha. Ha. How hilarious you are."
