If you Ask Me This, You're Gonna Get a Big, Fat NO!

It's not often that I post twice in a given day, but today I'm on a roll. A while back I wrote a post about how NOT to ask Voodoo Mama a question. I gave some good examples and discussed why those kinds of questions are not the kind I will take the time to answer. So far this year, I haven't gotten any new "Are you Kidding?" kinds of questions...until recently, that is.

Here is a question I got recently in my inbox:
"Good afternoon I need ur help please I wanna cast a spelling for abortion for my girlfriend please help us I don't know how to contact you"

Now, here's the thing...I am very aware of the fact that there are people who investigate psychics and other metaphysical websites and people who offer spellcasting services. One way this is done is by emailing the person they wish to investigate with some sort of "Are you kidding?" kind of question to see how you will respond. I admit, that is quite clever. I have apparently passed these kinds of bogus inquiries before with flying colors. But you never know if the question posed is legit (in terms of it being submitted by a real person who is just asking for something outlandish) or a set up by some well-meaning scam buster. The above question is so outlandish that it makes me go "hmmm."

One thing that screams red flag to me is the last part of the inquiry "...I don't know how to contact you"...really? Didn't you just email me?

Don't get me wrong - there are plenty of just plain stupid requests I receive from unenlightened individuals. There was the bizarre "can you turn me into my wife's panties?" The unrealistic "I want to win the lottery", the ridiculous "I want every woman I come in contact with to want to have sex with me" and the ever elusive goal "I want my ex back".

Then there are the questions that differ from the others, such as the one about making a woman suffer an abortion because someone doesn't want to be a baby daddy. This request is so loaded with ethical and moral implications that I felt the need to share it with my readers.

What about you? Have you gotten any outlandish types of requests such as the ones I have mentioned? Because I know it can't just be me.

Hi mama,

Please help me. I lost papa two years back. My family ( uncle and aunt) is crazy. They want me to marry a widower. They treat me like a burden. Please help me get rid of.
