We like to believe that curses are instances relegated to movies, television, and Major League Baseball. But, you can consider us converts, because after reading the following stories, we're pretty sure curses are a thing. Like, a bad thing. And don't even think about looking for talismans to buy for your protection, because we bought them all already.
(As always, thanks to AuntieMeme for the voodoo she works putting these together.)
(Also, does anyone want to buy some talismans? We're pretty hungry.)
