Cursing the Germans

Germany will have to contend with black magic as well Brazil's Selecao in today’s World Cup semi-final as a voodoo priest plans to curse die Mannschaft

Black magic enthusiast Helio Sillman from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil says his damnation will hinder Joachim Loew's team in the semi-final. 

"I'll take their top player and bind his legs so he can't run on the pitch," said Sillman, referring to the voodoo doll of an undisclosed German player that will be cursed in a ceremony before the game.

In his shop "World of Orixas" in the northern neighborhood of Madureira, Sillman carries out a ritual before each Brazil game. See photo above. 

Whether you believe him to be genuine or not – the fact is Brazil did advance to the semi-final despite playing below par. 

The Germans have been warned!

Senior Toastmaster MA Lakhmichand is giving me the due recognition as a cockroach expert. I deserve it, I suppose. I have read a lot about roaches and I know a lot about them. I even give speeches about them.

BTW, did you also know that a group of cockroaches is called an intrusion? 

Just like a cloud of bats, a zeal of zebras or a conspiracy of lemurs. 

The English language can be really illuminating.

A murder of crows, a parliament of owls or an army of caterpillars. A tribe of goats, a flamboyance of flamingos or a rhumba of rattlesnakes – and the list goes on and on. 

You can always learn something from my blog.
