Fibbing Friday — Superstitions Edition

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. This week is Di’s turn and, because today is Friday the 13th, she wants to know…

1. How many years bad luck do you get if you break a mirror? Depends upon the size of the mirror. The larger the mirror, the more years of bad luck you get.
2. What shouldn’t you walk under? A large bird with diarrhea.
3. Why are black cats crossing your path considered unlucky? Because at night you might accidentally step on them if you don’t see them in the dark and then they’ll get pissed and scratch the shit out of you.
4. Why do we ‘knock on wood’? Because knocking on steel can damage your knuckles.
5. Why are horseshoes considered lucky? They are lucky for horses because the keep them from stubbing their hooves.
6. Why do we cross our fingers for good luck? People often cross their fingers behind their backs when telling a lie in the hope that they won’t get caught in their lie. It rarely works.
7. Why is 13 considered an unlucky number? Because that is how old most teenagers are when they start getting acne.
8. On the other hand, why is 7 considered lucky? Because 7 ate 9 and that’s extremely funny to all seven year olds.
9. What is signified by itchy hands? Excessive masturbation.
10. Why should you not put shoes on the table? Because even though tables have legs, they generally don’t have feet and because they are inanimate objects that can’t walk, it would really look ridiculous to put shoes on their legs.

    Good answers! I especially like #10. And I’ve been rescued cosmically from #2 (less than a month ago). Meanwhile, I texted someone close to me about an ironic superstition this week; I don’t think she appreciated it. She’s been overly serious lately, but understandably (in a non-logical way).
