How exactly does one use a shepherd’s crook? The crook has a leg-up on a simple walking stick for herdsmen driving livestock in that its hooked end can be used to move trapped or stubborn animals by the neck or limbs. It became a symbol of religious leadership in multiple faiths including ancient Egyptian traditions and Christianity because of this ability to return the lost to the flock. Millennia after its invention for this purpose, while herding was being changed by the rise of more industrialized farming techniques, the shepherd’s crook found new life as a way to yank bad acts off the Vaudeville stage before the audience wasted all of their produce on them. Why were so many people bringing tomatoes to the theater back then, anyway? You do a little shopping, stop in for a matinée on the way back to the streetcar… Hey, who does this self-indulgent tap-dancer think he is, wasting hard-paying people’s money on this crap… I know Dick asked me to get 4 tomatoes to make his work lunches, but surely he won’t mind if I just let one go… Oh, and it felt so good! Who has the power now, you simpering Bohemian? Dick won’t mind one more tomato… I mean, Dick hates tap-dancing more than anyone! Oh, they’ve gone and yanked the fellow off by the neck! Just when I was starting to have fun…
