The Gashlycrumb Torah

Naomi Chana over at Baraita has, in the tradition of Edward Gorey, written a Gashlycrumb Torah. A snippet:

Aleph for Abihu, struck down by the Lord
Bet is for Balaam, cut off by a sword
Gimel for Gad, who died out in Goshen
Dalet for Dathan, buried in slow motion
Hay is for Haran, who merely died young
Vav is for Vofsi’s son, plagued by his tongue

Except for the image here, it’s not illustrated yet–any takers?–but fun nonetheless. Check it out the rest of it here.
