Fairly and odd parental ritual

This may seem like a colorful cupcake decorated with stars, but if we look up the symbolism of the stars in a mushroom (same shape, if you notice) then we find out that it’s a very common figure in the Polynesian culture before Christ. Specifically, to the ritual which this image alludes.

According to historians and experts from the region, one of the tribes from Austronesian origin had an agricultural-spiritual ceremony that took months from beginning to end.

The first step was the planting of a copious amount of fibrous vegetables. Months later, they were harvested. Then in the 3rd week after the 2nd full moon (according to the Malaysian lunar calendar), all virgin women changed their diet to a 100% vegetarian one to purify their digestive system.

They retired to a hill to defecate, for several days. Living in huts exclusively built for this purpose. When they had nothing to expel, they would return to the village, and the men would go up the hill and look for a peculiar feces with the same figure of a mushroom.

Upon finding it (sometimes it would take days, making it dry and hard), they painted 5 or 6 stars on it using vegetable oil. It was presented to the whole village and then transported to another area of the village, where the goat child lived.

This was a child that had a curse on him since birth. If the child didn’t cry during the first moon of being born, he was tossed aside to live with goats. Their family and other villagers could visit him, care for him and feed him, but he wasn’t allowed back into the village until he consumed the ceremonial mushroom. Said to cleanse his inner demon, remove the curse bestowed upon him by fate, and turn him into a normal human again.

The boy would move into the house of then man that found the mushroom shaped feces. He would then select a virgin wife to bear his future child (from the group that went initially to the cliff.)

At the wedding ceremony, his hair would be dyed green and her hair would be dyed pink.

The moral of this story is:
Never believe anything you read on the Internet.
