The Curse on the Stone

What do floods, foot-and-mouth disease, and football have in common? A 1069 word curse from the 16th century, engraved on a 14-tonne granite boulder by Carlisle artist Gordon Young. The string of misfortunes have befallen the town since the Cursing Stone was installed at the centre of the city, and the city council is considering having it destroyed. Yet more proof that one does not lightly fuck with Old Gods.
