Witch Doctor Wears Prada
You can hear the African Drums beating in the distance. The natives are restless waiting with great anticipation for the "Witch Doctor's" arrival. All the while wondering "What wonderful shoes and accessories will he be wearing this time?" Will they be fuzzy and pink? Will they be red? Will they have so much "bling" on them that they will have to wear sunglasses to welcome him? Will they be made out of animal skins, from his latest victim?Witch doctors are steeped in rituals. They work in a sacred healing hut, where their ancestors reside. They have specific colored cloths to wear to please each ancestor and often wear the gallbladder of the goat sacrificed at their graduation ceremony in their hair. They summon the ancestors by burning a plant while dancing, chanting and most importantly playing drums.The "Witch Doctor" will soon arrive for the big Gala 2010, sporting all his beads and colored fabrics. And Oh Yes, we can't forget about his shoes!!! He will be ready to "p a r t é y" and to enchant all those in attendance.
