What if Job Lived in Williamsburg?

No, not that Williamsburg. And certainly not this Williamsburg. Rather, the Williamsburg that is adjacent to the former, but where, unlike either the former or the latter, people don’t wear knee-length breeches, except perhaps occasionally for reasons of irony or of the avant garde.

WARNING: Video features mildly offensive language and perhaps more offensive interpretive biblical imagery.
