This traditional Irish magic spell can be used to vex enemies, competitors, difficult relatives, or the generally uncooperative.
Find a good-sized potato. The type does not matter and will neither add nor detract from the potency of the charm. Scrub well with water and drip dry. The most important step is this: Stab the potato repeatedly with a sharp fork while shouting to the heavens, “I curse thee,” and the person’s full name. “I curse thee..!” Wrap in cling film, pop in the microwave on high for five minutes and turn over for five more. Eat and relish delicious defeat.
