Nepal Seeks Duck-Voiced Deity

by | 16th, August 2008

NEWS from Nepal, where the country is looking for a female with a voice “as soft and clear as a duck’s”, “the body of a Banyan tree” and “the chest of a lion”.

Nepal is looking for Jordan to be its new live-in living goddess.

But what-oh? The caveat is that this creature has to be aged between 2 and 4 years old. But Anorak has calculated the birth ages of Jordan’s various body parts and noted that, on average, Jordan is 19 months old. She fits!

The goddess has to step down when she reaches puberty, and the current incumbent Preeti Shakya has reached her 11th birthday.

Yeah, puberty. And what if Jordan but an adolescent?

“If we don’t change her now we’ll have to wait until next year, which could be late,” says Deepak Bahadur Pandey, of the Trust Corporation, which oversees the search. “It is inauspicious if the girl starts menstruating while serving as Kumari.”

And not a little unsettling for the duckling…
