Knittin' Crap: Why Finger Puppets Are Not Voodoo Dolls

Red Shirt! != Zip-it Voodoo Doll

Supernatural effects aside, when you stick a pin in a voodoo doll, nothing happens. When you stick a pin in a finger puppet on your hand: "Owie! That hurts!"

When you twist the head of a voodoo doll, maybe some stuffing pops out. When you twist the head of a finger puppet: "Owie! That hurts!"

When you set a voodoo doll on fire... get the picture? That's why finger puppets make really bad voodoo dolls. Unless you really do want to punish yourself, in which case, one would wonder why you need to wear a small avatar of yourself on your finger to do so. Actually, I wouldn't wonder, because I really probably wouldn't want to know.
