    “. . . a separate story thread.”
    .
    . . . yet they do seem related, somehow.

    Not likely a bounty hunter’s word would be believed on something like that. Like now, bounty hunters were not much above the criminals they chased.
    ,
    Besides which, a freeborn person could not be made a slave except for specific crimes. It’s more likely that the slaver outfit hired someone illegal to kill their slaves because it was illegal to shanghai someone like that and word might get out.
    .
    Even if someone got convinced somehow, why would sorcery bother them? It was commonplace in different cults. Sorcery was synonymous with drugs (back then the drugs were pot, henbane, various halucinagens, etc.)
    .
    Take this example from Revelation 9:
    .
    “20 The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; 21 and they did not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries nor of their immorality nor of their thefts.”
    .
    In verse 21, sorceries is the word “pharmakeon” or φαρμακειων, which is where we get pharmacy from.

    Come, come now. Cap’n Eddie is not a liar. He’s merely very imaginative.

    Thing is, Cap’n Eddie stories have a habit of being true. For instance one of his previous arctic tales ended with everyone looking at him like “yeah, right” until they noticed the polar bear on one of the bar stools…
    Or the story of how the apes on Mars came to worship him. Lars confirmed that one (or maybe Danae and Jeffery saw the statues of Cap’n Eddie on Mars first and then asked Eddie about them after they got back to Earth, I can’t remember).

    With all the great stuff here day after day, Homer’s one of my favorites. Look forward to it every Sunday.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    I don’t think “bother them” in the moral or legal sense; more in the logistical sense of “hauling out the big guns”. If them be Romans, them be big on sorsical stuff. ;-)
