City is ‘cursed’ by ancient stone


“Another Millennium Project Brings Fear & Loathing.”

(Brought to you by Zeitgiest – the free Blather news service)

A stone commissioned to mark the millennium may be destroyed after being blamed for bringing misfortunes of “biblical proportions” to a city. Since the Cursing Stone was placed in Carlisle, the city has suffered floods, foot-and-mouth disease, job losses and a goal famine for the football team.
The 14-tonne granite artwork is carved with a 1,069-word 16th Century curse.
