So, I’m flipping through tv channels this evening, and I run across Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. It’s about halfway through the movie, but nothing else good is on, so I decide to watch. I have to say this is a pretty silly movie. Anyway, the bad guys have this voodoo doll of Indy (though since this is India, it can’t really be a voodoo doll). Of course, the voodoo doll allows the bad guys to do all the things that voodoo dolls allow bad guys to do.
I got to thinking, though: how does one go about destroying a voodoo doll? Wouldn’t the act of destroying the doll also destroy the doll’s intended victim?
