The Daily GLOB


Happy Friday!


GLOBmaster2017Good Morning GLOBers and best of luck on this creepy days pf creepy days. The GLOB Master hopes you have a lucky rabbits foot with you because you will need all the help you can get to avoid bad luck that is waiting just around the corner. Speaking of bad luck did you know Judas Iscariot was the 13th member on the table during the Last Supper? It was Judas who, according to the Gospel of John, had betrayed Jesus for "30 pieces of silver" to the Romans. However, the Gospel of Luke states that Satan had usurped the mind and body of this 13th disciple at the moment of betrayal. Moreover, Jesus Christ was crucified on a Friday. Christians all over the world thus mourn on this day called Good Friday, Black Friday or Holy Friday. More over the song says if you didn't have bad luck you wouldn't have no luck at all.
