YO-YO BANNED IN SYRIA – Blamed For Drought By Moslems
Drought and severe cold is disast-rously affecting the cattle in Syria,and the Moslem chiefs at Damascushave attributed the wrath of the heavens to the recent introduction of the yo-yo. They say that while the people are praying for rain to come down fromabove the yo-yo goes down, and before reaching the ground springsup through the subtle pull of the string.
The chiefs interviewed the PrimeMinister, and exposed the evil influ-ence of yo-yos, so they were immediately banned. To-day the police paraded the streets and confiscated the yo-yos from everyone they saw playing with them.
