It was a giant boulder and it rolled down this mountain and almost killed our sound guy."She had to apologize — not for almost killing a guy or thinking it was funny to almost kill a guy, but for calling attention to the religious significance of the rocks and then going for the humor of an ass-scratching fiasco.
