Really feel the need to express dislike, bitterness, hatred and resentment ? Make it a choice on a vending machine. Machine displays a variety of curses and religions (Voodoo, Wicca, Animist, Roman, Pagan, Nordic) - choose which one to buy. Put machines at heavy traffic zones like malls around Xmas time, trade shows, etc. Transaction choices could be paid by cash or credit, big or small, one time or installments, etc. What you get: a receipt and maybe fliers or brochures with detailed info about the curse, and a suitable wax doll and pins, or an inscribed lead sheet to be buried at midnight, or some herbs to burn while reading the chant on the card; i.e. something tangible to read and possibly stamp on. Viral, yes? For more esoteric religions, machines could be placed at Maker Faires, etc.

The original idea ... [8th of 7, Jul 06 2010]


       This would be very profitable, AND it would draw crowds of protesters. [+]

       The idea here is that someone elses teeth rot away rather than yours ...

       I can imagine the hoards of disparate religions with picket signs protesting eachother, standing at this machine, raising funds to plunk in change, while the vending machine owner just stands off in the corner and grins.
