The Lord spilled his bottle of Yoo-Hoo all over the living room carpet.

Look at what you’ve done, the Lord’s Mom said.

The Lord looked down and saw people drowning from a mudslide. That’s just a coincidence.

The Lord’s Mom unleashed her wrath, inflicted famine by sending the Lord to his room for the rest of the evening. Later that night, the Lord invented edible ways for people to return to him and play.
