On pins and needles
French President Sarkozy apparently hasn't heard that all publicity is good publicity. He is threatening to sue a company selling a Sarkozy voodoo doll. Here's the story from the BBC:
"The doll comes with pins and a manual with instructions on how to put the evil eye on the president.
Users can stick the pins into choice quotes from Mr Sarkozy which are printed on the doll.
The quotes on the Sarkozy doll include "work more to earn more" and "get lost, jerk" - which he reportedly said to a bystander who refused to shake his hand at an event last year".
Good stuff, but possibly the best part of the article is the last sentence:
"Voodoo has become associated with zombies and sticking pins into dolls to curse an enemy, but practitioners say this misrepresents their religion".
