This is the heart worm infested heart of a pitbull who had been living on the street for some time. The dog was humanely euthanized because of the severity of the infestation.
This heart was donated with the lungs to our 4H group to teach us the importance of getting heart worm preventives, about how the parasite lives and grows and the effect it has on the dog’s health. The heart and worms are on display with a few loose worms at the vet clinic belonging to our leader to teach others.
If you need to rain misfortune and folly down on your sniveling enemies, an apple curse box will work quite nicely.
- One red apple
- A knife
- A taglock representing your enemy
- Something to hollow out the core of the Apple (melon baller, spoon)
- Mortar and Pestle
- Dirt, for nastiness
- Cayenne Pepper, for a sting
- Pins and needles, for a prick
- Optional: Worms (fake worms, gummy worms, dead worms, or alive worms if you have something against worms)
- One Black Candle
Light the black candle first, so you have more than enough wax to seal the apple; you will need it.
Cut the apple in half with anger and violence (BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL so you don’t end up adding your finger to the curse box). Hollow out a decent-sized space in the apple to contain your spell ingredients, but leave enough flesh for sealing the box with wax.
Grind together the cayenne peppers and the taglock in the mortar and pestle and infuse it with the firey rage of a thousand suns. If you’re comfortable doing so, you might also grind the pepper with the dirt while envisioning all of the nasty deeds to be cast upon your enemy.
Before adding the foul concoction of dirt and cayenne pepper–that has smothered and bruised the taglock–to the empty apple core, take your pins and needles and stick them into the flesh of the apple, symbolically representing the physical hurt to be inflicted upon the poor soul who had done you wrong.
Add the dirt, cayenne pepper, taglock, and worms into the apple core. Drip wax onto the remaining flesh of the apple and quickly press the two halves together. Seal the seam with copious amounts of wax to ensure the box doesn’t fall apart.
Carve an evil, laughing face into the apple.
The apple must be present in your enemy’s space: toss it in their yard, in their car, in their house, in their garden, on their roof, in their office, whatever works.
The curse will end once the apple has rotted, decomposed, and returned to the earth.
