Uncongenial To Witches and Devils

"Once upon a time, according to tradition, there lived a German peasant whose wife was a witch, and the Devil invited them both to supper one fine evening. All the dishes lacked seasoning, and the peasant, in spite of his wife's remonstrances, kept asking for salt; and when after a while it was brought, he remarked with fervor, 'Thank God, here is salt at last,' whereupon the whole scene vanished."

Here's some salt to protect you this Halloween.

Story from Sacred Text.
