Top Ten Reasons Voodoo Will Never Die

  1. We have great music.
  2. We got skills — slavery, kidnapping, rape and murder make a religion fierce.
  3. We don’t care whether you believe or not, Voodoo moves forward anyway.
  4. It’s in your blood, the earliest evidence of modern humans were in Africa, it’s in all our DNA.
  5. Fear is a great motivator. Voodoo is nothing if not feared.
  6. Voodoo invented mojo.
  7. Voodoo can dance. It dances on fire, water, and in the corners of your mind.
  8. Voodoo smells heavenly. Open the nearest bottle of Florida water…inhale.
  9. Voodoo works.
  10. Voodoo made you read this.
