    Interestingly given the very slow metabolism of Wombats, Although it’s hardly a job I’d want, if you were a healer and had to change a creatures bedpan wombats would be an next to ideal choice as they only defecate every three days or so. That’s the second most interesting thing I know about wombat deification. The most interesting is mentioned in the comments of a later Digger comic* so I’ll leave you to find that for yourselves.

    *This tells you all you need to know about the readers.

    “Wombat deification!” I think that spellcheck did evolve into some kind of AI.

    Hmmm… this does bring to mind… if Digger were to accidentally apotheosize. what would she do with herself?

    Perhaps maintain a strict policy of non-involvement with mortals, just as she wished deities would with her?

    Actually, more likely she would serve as a sort of celestial ombudsman (ombudswoman? ombudswombat?) helping mortals sort out their difficulties with other deities. “Yes, yes, I know that Vensablorgshadvut the Nibbler of Kidneys is angry at you, and I know that the usual method of appeasing it (yes, at this time of year it lacks a gender… that isn’t important), is to sacrifice your firstborn child via drowning in tepid water, but that is only because you can’t get good leeks in most of the areas where it has its influence. Just go down to the market and get yourself about 10 pounds of leeks… fresh will do, but slightly mildewed is actually better. Anway, burn that on my altar and I’ll see that he gets it. Make sure to put the ash in the ash can and give the altar a good scrubbing when you are done. No sense in letting the place get messy.”
