Big Eid ul Adha Animals
Got a comment on an old post. Comment didn't say much, but given the topic (hex arithmetic in Google spreadsheets), I wondered who it was. Silly me. It was spam for a Pakistani website. I think their text blurb says it best:
Buy Bakra, Dumba, Goat, Cow, bull, Camel for sacrifice at Eid ul Azha for qurbani in Pakistan from online bakra mandi. This time Eid-ul-Adha will be on 12th Septermber, 2016 on Friday. Muslims will sacrifice animals on 1st, 2nd or 3rd day of Eid Qurbani in the remembrance of great sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim Alaihis Salam. On this day, muslims sacrifice their animals and devide in poor people around them. This website provide you easy way to do qurbani even for Pakistani's living outside Pakistan in foreign countires like USA, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Europe, India, Japan, China, France, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Hong Kong etc. Overseas Pakistan can book their animal online and we can deliver animal to their provided address or nominated charities in Pakistan. We have VIP animals for sale from special bakra farm house at this speciall occassion of Eid. You can select animals after viewing pics or on the basis of weight. We congratulate all people of Pakistan from Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi, Rawalpindi, Multan, Gujranwala, Bahawalpur, Faisalabad, Sargodha, Sahiwal, Dera Ghazi Khan, Peshawar, DI Khan, Swat, Kohat, Malakand, Abbottabad, Mardan, Bannu, Sukkur, Hyderabad, Aga Khan, Larkana, AJK, Mirpur Khas, Quetta and other cities on this special day of Eid Qurbani 2016.
I always wondered what became of the bodies of those sacrificed to the gods. In ancient times I suspect they were left for the gods or their minions to do with as they saw fit, which was probably for the best, being as you don't wanna be messin' with gods, being as they are all godlike and shit.
    But once you have cities and some level of civilization, you probably don't want to leave dead bodies lying around. Maybe burn them or donate them to the poor. Perhaps that was what the novices did. While the upper echelon of the priests were making nice with the rich, their underlings were supplementing their meager earnings by shoveling the bodies out the back door onto meat wagons.
    Anyway, it looks the bodies of these sacrificial animals are going to the poor.
