A 43-year-old male has become infected with coronavirus while asking higher powers to grant him and his family good health for the coming year.
Mure Kiken visited a shrine in Tokyo on Saturday with his wife and two children to cash in on some spiritual kickbacks after a tumultuous 2020.
Kiken prayed to God for financial prosperity and good health although he probably couldn’t tell you if that God was of the Buddhist variety or connected to Shinto.
“To be fair, I don’t care where His affiliations lie, I just want some of that sweet sweet luck,” Kiken said.
Kiken is now developing a mild fever and will likely spread COVID-19 to his family and work colleagues.
