I didn’t do it

I guess it was inevitable that one or two of the loveable wags thought that my becoming and Blogger and the site going down on the same day was too much of a coincidence.

Well, to start, as Bart Simpson says “I didn’t do it” and Mick says so too. (Not that I ascribe to a blame culture.) Although I have to admit when I woke up this morning and checked the site, I was in a state of sheer panic, wondering how much it was going to cost to fix Slugger if I broke it. Many cultures believe that women are objects of bad luck. In Islam, there is a Fatwah or rather a hadith that says that there is an evil omen in the woman and the horse If you want to know more, follow the link.

The British Navy also believed that women were unlucky on ships.

And of course, we all know that whistling women and crowing hens will bring the devil out of his den. A crowing hen was believed by some to forebode evil or disaster and bring bad luck.

So, this is not a ship, I don’t whistle and the Hadith is wrong. Having said all that, I won’t be twisting any more big RED buttons that say “DON’T TOUCH”

  • Hadn’t noticed until now you’d become a blogger here Miss Fitz. Best of luck with your new role.

  • Miss Fitz

    Thank you Beano. It was really unfortunate that the thing went down on my first day blogging, bad timing on Slugger’s part.

  • Rubicon

    Glad to hear you weren’t responsible MissFitz. It’s definately true about women on boats too!

  • Miss Fitz

    Aye Rubicon, the belief is true, but its not a valid belief!

    Lord Pete, I missed Kansas and have sworn never to touch anything again.

    My son maintains that the last words spoken on Earth will be….. ‘What does this one do?’

    Nah, missfitz.. the last words spoken on Earth will be, and in fact have been –

    “So long, and thanks for all the fish.”
