Is baldness something to make fun of?

I may be getting sensitive in my old age, but I think there may be something to this verse.

2 Kings 2:23-24
One of the more important passages in the Bible tells the story of Elijah, a wise man, who was besieged by male pattern baldness. One day he was thinking on spiritual matters (her name was Desiree), while making the long walk to Betheual, when he is attacked by a roving band of children who tease him with names like “bald head.” But Elijah was having none of this, he turns round and curses them in the name of the Lord, and instantly two female bears emerge from a nearby wood and maul all 42 children to death. (Obviously, the lord understood the importance of the Desiree fantasy, but then, don't we all)
The moral of this story? Don’t make fun of bald people. Or perhaps bears make great weapons of mass destruction. But in any event, it is good to know that the biblical god is willing to kill children if they tease a bald person.


  1. Quite the sensitive one aren't we? Are you bald perhaps yourself?

  2. I believe my post made it very clear I am experiencing male pattern baldness.
