PA 10207687 Vampire warning sees garlic sales rocketing in Serbia

VAMPIRES don’t exist. We all know that. Even stupid people have an inkling that vampires aren’t real. However, in Serbia, they do things a bit differently and by that, what we’re saying here is that they absolutely believe in vampires and garlic growers are thrilled at the news!

That’s because sales of garlic have gone mental in Western Serbia after a local council issued a warning that a vampire is on the prowl.

That’s right. Public officials have warned locals to be careful in case an imaginary demon vants to drink their blood, ah, ah, ah.

The public health warning was issued when an old mill collapsed, which used to belong to ‘village vampire’, Sava Savanovic. Anyone who went to collect grain at the old mill got their blood supped out of their necks.

The mayor of the village of Zarozje, Miodrag Vujetic, isn’t worried about being mocked by everyone, because he’s placing the safety of his citizens before hoots of derision.

“People are worried, everybody knows the legend of this vampire and the thought that he is now homeless and looking for somewhere else and possibly other victims is terrifying people. We are all frightened,” he said.

The people of Zarozje have been advised to put a holy cross in every room of their house, to ensure that the mythical monster is thwarted by an altogether different myth.

Terrific.
