Fact of the Day: Saint Lawrence the Funny

Saint Lawerence is a saint in the Roman Catholic Church, who was apparently a martyr during the days of the Roman Emperor Valerian. He had made the Roman leadership so angry that they apparently roasted him until his demise. After much agony, Saint Lawrence allegedly told the Romans to flip him over and he was well done on that side. He is considered the patron saint of cooks, chefs, and comedians.

Maybe that's why they have those roasts on Comedy Central.

It always horrifies me to think of the ingenuity people apply to killing each other.
