This week’s Thursday post isn’t going to be the usual Top Ten list because the Mister and I saw a voodoo man on the street the other day, and that ranks pretty high on my list of things worth mentioning.
This is not the voodoo man we saw, because there was no way I was stopping the car long enough to take his picture, but it gives a basic visual.
This man was pretty tall on his own, but he was also wearing this giant black top-hat-type thing that sloped up in the front and made him look eight feet tall, he had white stripes painted on his face, crazy dredlocks down to his waist and, judging by the way he swayed when he walked toward the street, was either very drunk or under the control of some unearthly spirits.
The Mister says he was also holding a chicken. Creepy.
I really only saw him because I was afraid I was going to hit him with our car as he stepped into the street. I’m not sure what kind of crazy stuff might happen to you if you hit a voodoo man with your car, but I really didn’t want to find out.
Also, whenever I think of the word “voodoo” I instantly think of this (read left column then right):
I’ve never seen the movie/heard the song this comes from, so if the context is inappropriate please forgive me, but for whatever reason I’ve heard this once or twice and it always comes to mind.
So, you seen any chicken-toting, straw-doll-poking, demon-callers lately?
