A Woman Spits on George Clooney

Friday, December 10, 2010

A woman spat on Hollywood actor George Clooney during his trip to Sudan. Pretty the opposite way of showing love, or hate? Read on.

The Story
Clooney appeared with Ann Curry on a Dateline BBC special to talk about the conflict in the war-torn country (Sudan), then was spit by a female village elder.

"It was a tradition I haven't seen," he said. "She pulls you down and spits into your hands, then she pulls your head down and spits on top of your head."

I would've flipped if I was him. xD

The Truth
In the Abyei Village, spitting on one's head is considered a polite greeting and is supposed to bring the receiver of the spit luck. Wut??? How on earth anybody in this world can take spit as something as near as lucky?? I can't connect the dots. Help me out here.
