    What the hell? Sounds like the guy had some piece of crap furniture that his cat wouldn't stop pissing in, and he tried to cover the smell up with Jasmine-scented Febreeze, so he had to make up some elaborate story to keep the buyer from sending it back.

    Funny as hell though, thanks for the read rH.
    :D

    I was actually thinking of creating an Ebay auction called "Curse in a Jar," in which I'll proclaim to all Red Sox fans that I have captured the spirit of the Bambino in a glass jar (which would explain the Red Sox's recent mastery of the Yankees). I'll go on to explain that if I don't receive X amount of dollars (to sell the jar), I'll threaten to release the Bambino back into the "World of the Living," thereby keeping the Curse intact. I think I'd make a fortune from desperate Sox fans. Hell, I might even be able to get Manny (the poster) to pony up some dough... :)

    The hebrew writing on the back is a common prayer said at every service.

    Shma Yisrael Adonai Elohenu Adonai Ehad

    Baruch Shem K'vod Malchuto Le'olam Va'ed


    Translated as:

    Hear,O Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One

    (Can't find Siddur to translate 2nd line)


    This guy is obviously a phoney. This is the most common prayer said in judaism.

    maybe they thought by inscribing it on the wine case that it would help ward off the evil spirits?

    oh i dont believe the story either

    but why does the inscription being a common prayer make the story false?

    Thats what I think. If I was trying to scare someone I would have written something terrible in Hebrew. Not a common prayer.

    But of course there are many possibilities so ehh...

    No need for a siddur when a fellow Jew is on board. (Get it? On board. Ahh forget it).

    Blessed is His name, whose glorious kingdom is forever and ever.
