:lol:  Probably an urn for someone's dead dog or cat.

Goblin was likely a nickname for a treasured loved one.

An odd reaction seems to me, jumping straight to 'being cursed'.

 

sigh...  C'est la vie.

We must not look at goblin men

we must not buy their fruits

who knows upon what soil they fed

their hungry, thirsty roots

People make stuff up to be emotional, afraid or upset all the time

Indeed, folks are most addicted to emotional states, far more overall it seems to me than they are to substances.

I'll guess it's the remains of someone's cat. Merlin is probably a cat too. Good thing she didn't buy both of them.

The easiest way to find out is to taste the ashes. :yes:

If they don't resemble charred fish, it's a dog.

Think of it as training exercises in dull times to keep human systems alert and fully operational in case of actual need.  Some people just get a little carried away.

That is a stunningly beneficial redefinition of that behavior.  Thank you! 

You Sir, have given me a real gift.  Something I can use in my daily life that will bring me much needed compassion for folks I observe (indluding myself) in the moment when I observe it.

As reported by 'The Daily Mirror', that illustrious font of knowledge and wisdom.  And how did the gullible, weak-minded lady initially report her Carteresque discovery?  Twitter!  How very 2020.  Her agent ought to tell her that the modern way to promulgate interminable woo is through TicToc, followed up by a feature on LadBible.  Then we all might take her a bit more seriously.

Time to dust off the PapaSmurf-ometer of Gently Telling Fruitcakes They're Wrong (PoGTFTW - I'm still working on the acronym):

  • Did any of this even happen, ever?    23%
  • Would this anaesthetising story suddenly be cool and exciting if she went on TickTock with it?    174%
  • Genuine human ashes, no need to test them or anything clever like that.    666%
  • Genuine human ashes of someone famous like Lord Lucan or Shergar.    66.6%
  • Animal ashes.    8%
  • Animal ashes of a pet called Goblin.    9%
  • Angela's Ashes.    10%
  • Should've bought Merlin as well; she's cursed and destined for the eternal pits of hell because these two soulmates have forever been separated.    100%

This is actually how tabloid media get a lot of their stories these days - journalists trawl social media looking for comments that can be made up into "human interest" stories to fill the pages.   In some cases, people aren't even aware that the strange/silly./embarassing story they related to what they thought was just a handful of friends is going to be on page 3 ...
