For sale: the anti-Christ sword

cursed sword

To Austin, Texas, where a Cragslist advert tells of a cursed, double-handed 18th century broadsword.

They say “they could feel a strange energy in my sword room”.

The advert:

Sword For sale WARNING might be haunted – $150

This sword is from the 1700s. I got it at an antique store in my memaw’s home town back in 1984. The person who sold it to me told me to be careful because there is a 90+% chance that it is cursed. Since it’s been in my house my life has descended into pure chaos. My knitting group came over and they all said they could feel a strange energy in my sword room (I have a collection of over 100 swords. This is my only haunted sword). Since i got this sword, about 3 times a week a crucifix will fall off of my wall for no reason. I am 76 years old. I cannot have this cursed item in my house anymore. Please take it off my hands!!

The advice woiuld be to never remove your sword from the sword room and place it in your crucifix room. And vice-versa. And only hang one of them over your bed.
