A man and his guest were having a discussion before dinner.
Guest: Did you see the news, that girl in the next town over suffers from possession!
Host: Oh, does she now, how convenient for her.
Guest: Convenient! What do you mean?!
Host: To have demons for an excuse.
Guest: Surely you jest! Who would want such an excuse?
Host: Who wouldn't? All sins absolved as foreign acts forced upon the afflicted. Quite a good alibi.
Guest: What acts could a man possibly commit to even close in on the acts of a demon?!
Host: He could carve the flesh from your face for ornament on his dinner plate.
Guest: What a terrifying thought! A man could commit such an act?!
Host: It's purely hypothetical.
Guest: I would hope so!
Host: Hope is a good thing to have.
The host casually picked up a carving knife from the table.
Host: Unfortunately, hope is not on the menu tonight.
