Anne: Asherah, are you at all related to Queen Brighid the Bright?
Asherah: No, but I see her sometimes at the hairdresser.
Anne: I'm hardly believing these notes my producer gave me for this interview. It says here you were married to Yahweh? Wow, Asherah, that's a bold assertion!
Asherah: Archaeologists have found documents from extremely ancient Israel that leave no doubt as to our former marital status. One tablet clearly says "Yahweh and His Asherah." We had sons, too!
Anne: I am flabbergasted. No one told me about that in Methodist Sunday School.
Asherah: Well, you know, once a god gets the Immaculate Conception thing ironed out, why keep a spouse around? Especially one who was as popular as I was.
Anne: .... So, Asherah, as a bored goddess, you're allowed to make a bald pitch for support on this site.
Asherah: I just want to stop being seen as some second-class, harlot, evil wicked witch. It hurts my feelings. I was respectable, and I resent the revisionist history.
Anne: As well you might. I'll ask Queen Brighid the Bright to put you on her "A" list for parties.
Asherah: Oh, would you do that? She does have lively ones!
Anne: Goddess Asherah, thank you for being our guest today on "The Gods Are Bored." I wish you the best of luck regaining a praise and worship team!
Asherah: Thank you. Are you going to finish that Pop Tart?
