  Old strange African fetish

Old strange African fetish

Uploader comment: This turned up at my door step a few months ago. It came from a Kent postage stamp but I did not buy or order it. I made one wish (I don't know why I thought I could use it to make a wish, also I wish I had made a different wish lol) on it and it came true and I got so freaked out I never wished again. Anyone know what it might be? (Also it was a cardboard box full of those small white foam little things they use for packaging, it was all stamps (about £17 in stamps) on the box. no letter, no cryptic message, no return address, no money from my bank, no anything. I thought it was prank...On the day it arrived, I was playing 'Day of Defeat' on-line and heard the gate open. I waited until I got 2 more head shots before going down stairs to wait for the door bell. BUT even though the door was open a slight bit and the doorbell worked, the delivery man never rung it or knocked on the door!! I asked him what it was and his words were 'It is what it is'.. I thought not much of it until I opened it. Anyway, as for the wish............. My brothers PC had stopped working. His graphics card had gone weird and was throwing out random lines and pixels etc so he brought it round. We spent about 4 hours trying to fox it, looking at both software and hardware. In the end he went for a wee and I held the things head and said 'I wiash to **** this thing would start working again so we can go gt some more beers'. The same second I finished the statement then the PC just booted up!! Now You might not believe me, or you might or whatever, I don't care. I'm not gonna justify anything. Either you believe what I have said or not. I still keep it, but I won't ask it for anything because I think it looks evil and it might want something back. Your thoughts please.

Really strange looking thing you have there. I assume it's made of wood, right? Can you tell if the 'hair' is fake or real?

It's real hair, it has the texture and feel of horse mane hair. The horns are real horns as well, but I don't know what from. Best guess would be a goat.

(UPDATE) I did buy it, from E-Bay, just found the transaction, money came from my Paypal account so that's why I didn't see it on my bank statements. I guess I was very drunk when I bought it as I have no recollection. DOH!

Its called a tokoloshi, african definitly,it was used when we where younger to scare us in eating vegetables and doing what we did not want to, even today some of the older africans put bricks under there beds feet to lift it higher so the tokoloshi cant get on the bed. very rare item you have there.
