A Vast Conspiracy

A couple weeks back, I jokingly shared a link to a site teaching you how to properly fight off a golem. All in good fun I thought. What could go wrong? Looking back, my innocence is frightening.

I say this because, today, I believe there to be nothing less than an internet conspiracy to commit genocide against Jewish mythical creatures. At first, I thought it was just a harmless joke at the expense of golems. No harm, no foul. But now I see that the situation is much, much worse.

EHow.com, a website that claims to tell you how to do just about anything, offers an explanation on how to spot a dybbuk. Sure, that seems harmless enough. Some people might want to be able to identify a dybbuk when they see one. It’s a lot like bird watchers. You wanna know what you are seeing.

But EHow goes too far. They aren’t content with their lessons on how to spot a dybbuk. No, no, no. They want more. After they teach you how to spot one, they teach you how to perform an exorcism on the human body that the dybbuk is controlling!

Describe it however you’d like. Where I come from, that is a call for mass murder.

Resist Dybbuks! Resist!
