Mother of the Voodoo- Bride

How can I face my fans? Today my daughter was married in a voodoo ceremony. At one stage it looked like the ceremony might not go ahead when the groom balked at killing the sacrificial pig. David went as white as a sheet when Entri, (Mei Li's supposed grandfather) told him to slaughter this pig that was tied up in front of the long house. Gross!!! I really felt for him. Of course, the TV crew lapped it all up. Hard to think what was the most cringe making moment. But that time when the witch doctor guy waved a black chicken over Mei Li and David's heads takes some beating.
