Forget love, 'hex your ex' on Valentine's Day

By Melissa Gray

LONDON, England (CNN) -- Love hurts, especially for jilted lovers on Valentine's Day.

With that in mind, a London tourist attraction is offering visitors the chance to curse former boyfriends, girlfriends or spouses -- and get a discount on the entry price at the same time.

"Hex your Ex" is the Valentine's Day promotion at the London Dungeon, a house of horrors that takes visitors through elements of the city's bloody, gruesome, and torturous past.

To qualify, visitors must bring a picture of their ex -- or anyone who has shunned them -- then rip it up and throw it in a smoking cauldron, spokeswoman Kate Edwards told CNN. Visitors can then select from a range of curses to inflict on their ex.

"If you happen to be single or freshly shunned, this is a way to move on and have a great way of doing it," Edwards said.

Hexing your ex will earn you £5 ($7.20) off the entry price.

"It's very therapeutic, but it means in times of the credit crunch, you get money off as well," she said.

The "curses" are meant to be taken lightly, she said. All were developed by the Dungeon's creative team. "They involve marvelously bad things happening to your ex," she said. "Nothing deadly, obviously. It's obviously tongue-in-cheek."

LoS comment:

This article is a bunch of silly nonsense. The "museum" looks like a total ball of turd and ridiculously overexpensive. Haunted house kinda hokum four sucker tourists.

What's really funny about this article is the ads that follow. Stoke the superstitious and then try and sell them snake oil. [蛇油, shéyóu] The article is the shill if you will, for the gentleman behind the link who's got the cure for what ails ya.

All the hex removal and counter-hex incantations you'll ever need. And if travel to London is required, well, that's taken care of, too.

  1. I saw "Two Men of Verona" on Valentine's Day.

    Nothing like offering your sweetheart up to the fellow who just tried to rape her! What fun!

    I'm curious: Is there a free copy of the Numerberg Chronicles, in English, available in the Internet?

    I'm interested in reading the seventh age of "history", which was, when penned, the time yet to come: "Outlook on the end of the world and the Last Judgement".
