Easter is almost here - Clean your whips!

In the Philippines, Catholics have an Easter tradition - self flagellation. Apparently this good friday ritual has become quite a tourist attraction. I can see why. We just don't get enough pain and blood on TV and video games. Apparently the Philippine government is asking that people make sure to clean their whips well to prevent infections. Ironic, though. Wouldn't God prevent that from happening to the most penitent?
