How to Gain Good Luck
Last night I was over at a friend’s house regaling them with stories about B-Cack and his love of midgets and monkeys. B-Cack has always been an odd sort and most people find the stories I tell of him quite amusing.
B-Cack’s obsession of midgets became the topic of discussion and I spent a lot time explaining that it wasn’t sexual but more of a morbid curiosity on B-Cacks part. It’s not that he fantasizes about being with midgets, it’s just that he thinks that they are to cool to go unnoticed and wants them around him. Look how happy he is that a midget is actually touching him. I think I’ll give his obsession the name of “Lilliput Syndrome”. As we were all having a laugh at B-Cack’s strange interest, the brother-in-law of my friend came out and said maybe the funniest thing ever.
I’ll quote “Did you know rubbing a humpback midget is good luck?”
I couldn’t control my laughter. It was just too funny to be true. I can’t write things that funny. As it turns out though, in a book written by Gunter Grass called the Tin Drum the main character is of small stature and has a humpback . Women would touch his hump thinking that it was good luck.
Surely B-Cack will now search for a humpback midget in hopes of touching it for good luck. Please, if anyone spots a humpback midget drop a line here so that I can point B-Cack in the right direction. Also if you happen to find a humpback midget please touch them and tell me how your luck has changed.
