Mysteries of the Orient

Fainting spells afflict Vietcong school children: “Since January 17, between 12 and 40 students faint every day at school, mainly between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.” The cause of the fainting is a mystery. Also a mystery is why these children are in school, when they could be in a factory making sneakers.

From Malayisa comes an amazing report of “spiritual fires” plaguing a house. The unusual blazes have left the entire nation baffled:
A weird "spiritual fire" broke out in a residential house at Jalan Pantai Cahaya Bulan, Kampung Barembang, Kota Bharu recently.
More than ten ulamas failed to put out the "fire" by way of reciting the Koran verses, and incidents of spontaneous fires burning the clothes continue to take place for more than twenty times thereafter.
[O]wner of the house, Zainab Sulaiman, 73, said even though the incidence of "spiritual fires" had somewhat slowed down after the ulamas offered the prayers, they still came for about four times. 
The mysterious phenomenon appeared again during day time for more than twenty times... 
The "spiritual fires" have burned the clothes, spoiled the food, turned on the gas cooker and burned the new school uniforms and veils of Zainab's two granddaughters, 11-year-old Nur Fartili and 13-year-old Wan Nurfatifa, making them unable to go to school. 
The incidents have lasted for 13 days now and many "supreme masters" have been consulted but to no avail. 
Zainab could hardly understand why such strange phenomenon could take place in her house, which was built on the land belonging to the Islamic Affairs Bureau...
Those poor girls. They must be miserable.


  1. Why aren't those girls in a factory making sneakers? Those "spiritual masters" must be real incompetents if they haven't gotten the message.

  2. What's the next move, go to 20 ulamas, or try to find better ulamas? Or both?

    In hindsight I should have raised the possibilty the fires are being produced by bio-luminescent owls.

  3. 'Mysteries of Africa' -- Yo!

  4. At least they kicked him out.
