Proverbial Curses 1

'Hello! My name is Buffy. Ask me about curses.'

- Buffy the Vampire Slayer,  episode 1, Season 6

Welcome to Buddha's Black Dog, my blog on curses and spells: for what it's about  (and my other blogs).  see

Buddha's Black Dog is  organised thematically, and older posts will be linked to  after each post.

Some proverbial curses are presented  humorously,  but may have an uncomfortable edge, eg

I hope your rabbit dies and you can't sell the hutch
Probably quite old this one, with variants through the ages.  Our favourite is this from Flashman and the Mountain of Light

Well thank'ee Sir Henry, and I hope your rabbit dies and you can't sell the hutch
