Girl marries dog to ward off "evil" spirits!

Who wants to go to the movies to see fantasy?
We got enough right here in our real life!

A flaming indication that India remains a land of enduring superstition, especially in rural areas where literacy is practically non-existent, here is a most unusual news item about a young girl who was forced to marry a dog in order to ward off “evil spirits.”

In India’s eastern Jharkhand, locals in the Munda Dhanda village have ‘married off’ one of its children to a stray dog because they believed her family was endangered by a malevolent spirit that could be assuaged in no other way.

The ceremony was performed to the beating of many drums in the belief that it would help to overcome any curse that might fall upon the unfortunate family.

In an odd twist of fate, the girl will be free to marry a man later in life without even seeking a divorce from her four-legged husband!

And here's the video to prove it!

This is so prevalent in India, that Bollywood superstar Aishwarya Rai had to marry an effigy of the hindu god Vishnu before marrying actor Abhishek Bachchan, in order to ward off any curses in their marriage!

As stated in my last post...What part of "animal" these people don't understand?

I hope their ceremony also avoid the curse of the fleas!!!
