Embarrass this. Embarrass that.
Here’s the story which you can read in it’s entirety at Yahoo:
PATNA, India (Reuters) – Farmers in an eastern Indian state have asked their unmarried daughters to plow parched fields naked in a bid to embarrass the weather gods to bring some badly needed monsoon rain, officials said on Thursday.
Witnesses said the naked girls in Bihar state plowed the fields and chanted ancient hymns after sunset to invoke the gods. They said elderly village women helped the girls drag the plows.
“They (villagers) believe their acts would get the weather gods badly embarrassed, who in turn would ensure bumper crops by sending rains,” Upendra Kumar, a village council official, said from Bihar’s remote Banke Bazaar town.
I had no idea that would work. Now I’m thinking about all the situations I could be fixing just by being naked…
Hedon and Stace show up at a West Memphis truck stop at about 01:00 and there are no parking spots. Stace reluctantly prepares to drive on but Hedon has a plan. Stripping off all her clothes, Hedon jumps out of the truck and starts dancing around the parking lot nekkid in an effort to embarrass the parking space gods into creating an open parking spot that is easy to hit. Several drivers see Hedon, assume the rapture has happened and this is obviously the signal for the start of Satan’s reign on earth, and roar out of the parking lot. Hedon smugly parks in a great spot next to the building.
Hedon goes into yet another Subway to get some lunch. The Subway is no longer offering the Tuscan Chicken which had become Stace’s favorite. Hedon tries to order it anyway. They insist they don’t have it. Hedon sighs and prepares to force the issue by embarrassing the Subway sandwich gods with the naked dance of the fresh sandwich toppings. Halfway through the dance the police show up and Hedon is escorted off the premises. Hedon is thrilled because she didn’t want Subway anyway and now there’s nothing to be done about it.
The Hags get yet another crappy preplan over the DriverTech. Hedon promptly sheds the clothes, grabs the phone, and takes a video of herself dancing the “omg if your eyes were to fall out from watching this dance you would quit sending us such crappy loads” dance. The dance is then e-mailed to Uriah not only causing his eyes to fall out, but also causing the entire TWMNBN computer system to crash to a halt.
Finally home, Stace wants Hedon to sweep the dead leaves off the deck and straighten up the grill area. No longer a novice at this god-embarrassing thing, Hedon rips off the clothes quickly and starts doing the traditional “don’t make me do yard work” dance around the living-room to embarrass the white-trash-front-lawn gods. Stace laughs so hard she forgets what she was saying. Hedon goes back to watching tv.
Hedon can’t think of anything to post on her blog. She feels she is going to have to make an effort to embarrass the writer’s block gods…
