Statistics Saturday: What The Patron Saint Of Various Things Was Killed By


Patron Saint Of Killed By
Archers Cudgels, after recovering from being shot by arrows
Bears Not Bears
Ailments of the Throat Beheading
Stenographers Beheading
Firefighters Drowning, after declaring that he would climb on the flames to heaven if the Roman soldiers did burn him at the stake as they were planning to do
Coffee-house Owners Old age while kept for decades in a cell adjacent to the church to hide his deformities from the public
Civil Defense Volunteers Old age, fatigue after delivering a Solemn rather than Low Mass
Tile Makers Plague, possibly?
Also Tile Makers Natural causes
Intestinal Ailments Intestines ripped out and tied around a windlass
Toothache Old age, looks like. He was 99 apparently?
Holy Roman Emperors Executed on orders of the Roman Emperor
Another One For Tile Makers Natural causes again
Not Procrastinating Beheading

Also, really, the patron saint of overcoming procrastination is “Expeditus”? Exactly the name you’d give if you were bluffing your way through being asked “who’s the patron saint of overcoming procrastination”? Or if you were Mel Brooks writing a scene without trying too hard at it? That’s … well, heck. I mean, you know?
