Whether you believe it’ll do anything or not, you can still have a bit of fun at the expense of the nutty televangelist Pat Robertson, who seems to think the Haiti earthquake has something to do with voodoo practices.
There’s a voodoo doll (pictured) for sale on eBay.
“They were under the heel of the French – you know, Napoleon the Third and whatever,” Robertson has been quoted as saying. “And they got together and swore a pact to the Devil. They said, ‘We will serve you if you will get us free from the Prince.’ True story. And so the Devil said, ‘OK it’s a deal.’ And they kicked the French out. The Haitians revolted and got something themselves free. But ever since they have been cursed by one thing after another.”
The soul of logical thinking, these televangelists, aren’t they?
“Ever wanted to cause Pat Robertson a massive headache?” asks the eBay entry. “Give him back pain? Jab him in the crotch? Of course you have! Well then BID NOW to own your very own physical representation of the dark, dark soul of Pat Robertson.”
Accessories in the deal, apparently, are “Pat’s very own Holy Bible, and bag of money taken from real Americans!”
Well, it’s said that voodoo works, to which a logical mind might add that the intended victim needs not only to know that a curse or hex has been performed but also must believe in it.
It won’t be long before Pat Robertson knows about the voodoo doll. Who knows? Maybe the buyer will have enough pins to prick the silly sod’s conscience. Then he’ll feel a real prick.
