Voodoo Priest Predicts World Cup Glory For Togo
Now, if there's one thing people will say about me, it's that I am respectful of other cultures - oh, and that I make a mean orange smoothie.
But, seriously, if the only person predicting you will be successful in the World Cup is a local Voodoo priest you have some serious problems.*
I like Togo. I stumbled downstairs from my hotel room to the local rathskellar to watch that game so you know I care about Togo. Any team that could demand hundreds of thousands of dollars in pay from its fellow Togo citizens for being in the World Cup - a country where the per capita income is $358 per year - earns my respect. That's like me walking up to Jaime Pressly and insisting she buy me dinner.
He must be the same guy who told the Dixie Chicks that going to Europe and criticizing Bush was a good idea. Why is it that I don't listen to country music at all yet I know people who listen to country music are patriotic but the short, fat one with the big mouth in the Dixie Chicks doesn't? Their solution to the problem? Change their concert tour to spend time in Canada. Well, that just doesn't need a punchline, does it?
*Late edit: let's give some props to our Voodoo Priest. Turns out Togo DID win the World Cup, but it was a girl and she won Miss World Cup. So he was close. Maybe he used the wrong animal bones.
