Fibbing Friday — Superstitions

Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as hosts for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. Today is Di’s turn to host and here are her questions.

1. What does it mean if you have an itchy right palm?

It means that you masturbate too often.

2. On the other hand, what does it mean if you have an itchy left?

It means that you’re ambidextrous.

3. Why is it considered good luck to find a horseshoe?

Because there is often a valuable horse attached to it.

4. Why is saying ‘Bless you’ when someone sneezes considered to be good luck?

Because if you said “Shut the f*ck up” instead, you might get punched in the nose, and that’s not good at all.

5. Why do we say ‘Find a penny, pick it up?’

Because the value of the metal used to make a penny, if melted down, is worth more than one cent.

6. Why do we ‘knock on wood?’

Because most doors are made out of wood and if you want to enter a room, it’s common courtesy to knock on the door before entering.

7. Why is the number 666 considered unlucky?

Because three of anything is a crowd.

8. Why do some people believe it’s unlucky to step on the cracks in the pavement?

For the same reason that some people believe that the number 666 is unlucky.

9. Why do we cross our fingers for good luck?

We cross our fingers behind our backs when we’re telling a lie in the hope that we won’t get caught in the lie (as in “cross my fingers and hope to die if I’m telling a lie.”)

10. Why is it unlucky to open an umbrella indoors?

Because it never rains indoors and opening an umbrella indoors makes you look like a moron.

    HAHAHAHHAHHAHA!!! I got tears!! (and on that wise little ditty “Cross my fingers (heart) and hope to die, stick a needle in my eye, all these things if I’m telling a lie” . . you forgot the sticking a needle in your eye. Maybe on purpose. Whatever the case, thank you! *phew* ) I actually have said “Shut the f*ck up!!” to some twerp with allergies who sneezes and sneezes and sneezes (ad infinitum) and you’re right. Getting punched in the nose is unlucky (and painful). LOL
