True, embellished and fictional stories for your amusertainment

The power of positive thinking and self-fulfilling prophecy often go hand in hand.

The young woman who married a dog is a perfect example.

Village elders told 18 year old Mangli Munda that she was cursed with bad luck and hounded her to marry a canine in order to lift the spell.

Not thrilled with the arranged marriage, Mangli said: “I am marrying a dog because the village elders believe that my evil spell will be passed on to the dog.”

Fortunately the wedding is not legally binding. Mangli won’t need to divorce the pup before remarrying.

Apparently other young women have taken the same path with grrrreat success.

Who knows whether the evil spell is actually absorbed by the dog. The important thing is that Mangli and her villagers believe it is. As a result, the curse is broken.

I’m all for the power of positive thinking and think I’ll try it out myself. Maybe a self-fulfilling “profitsy” that nets long-term financial security, at least for my dogs.

May the farce be with you!

  1. Lets all paws and wonder who the joke’s really on
    (The dog does get to go on and live a long and happy life by threatening to release the evil spell upon the village?)

  2. I wonder what the dog did to get himself into this predicament…And by the way, he doesn’t look to happy about it either.

  3. Sounds like a song.. “And they called it puppy love.”

I love it when you comment - it makes my day!
