Case File: The Universe vs. Atum

Police Reports

Case description: The universe—since people weren't created yet—accuses Atum of indecent exposure. When Atum pleasured himself to create his son and daughter, Shu and Tefnut, he dropped trou in front of the entire world-to-be.

Case status: Dismissed. The great water of the world, Nu, forgave him when she realized clothing wasn't invented yet.
