To Stop Gossip
What ever are the reasons of gossip about you, you can prevent it.
Write the names of those who are spreading gossip on a piece of tissue
paper. Draw a pair of parrots, beak to beak on the paper, or cut out
pictures of parrots and place them on the tissue. Add three cloves of
garlic, to kill the germs of gossip, then wrap the tissue and bury it
outside. This will stifle the malicious talk. As the paper
disintegrates, so too will the rumours.
