The Wise & Foolish Virgins

You know, I paid fairly good attention to my Biblical parables growing up, and I totally don't remember this one at all. You'd think that any parable about a guy marrying ten virgins would be pretty hard to miss...yes, it's about the Second Coming and all, but it also goes to show that Jeezus wuz um laydees man.

(Peter von Cornelius, The Wise & Foolish Virgins, c. 1813)

Isn't that the one where there are a bunch of virgins waiting for a bridegroom at night, and the ten wise ones decide to be vigilant and conserve their lamp oil, and the foolish ones decide that they can have anal with the football team and they're still pure in the eyes of the Lord?

I have no retort. But yes, that very one!
