Four Leaf Clovers Are Evil

by Elroy Willis -- April 4, 1999

WACO (EAP) -- "Four-leaf clovers are evil and must be uprooted" said a Waco woman to doctors as she was being stitched up at a local hospital after being attacked by a neighbor's dog while searching their backyard for demonic clovers.

34-year-old Francene Williams says she received a message from God in a dream that told her to rid her neighborhood of all clovers which have more than three leaves.

"God told me that three leaves are perfect, just like the trinity, and that He never intended for clovers to have more than three leaves. He said Satan was responsible for the extra leaves, and that I should rid my neighborhood of the works of Satan," she said.

"God dosen't like superstition cutting in on His territory, and wants everyone to stop such practices as believing that four-leaf clovers or rabbit feet are good luck."

Williams was apparently wandering through her neighborhood at night with a flashlight looking for the evil clovers when she was attacked by an angry German Shepherd which was trying to protect its owner's property.

"We feel bad for Mrs. Williams," said Jeff Anderson, owner of the dog. "She shouldn't have been on our property, especially at night, since we leave our dog outside at night."

Williams claims that the dog is possessed by Satan, and that it was guarding a large patch of four-leaf clovers and attacked her when she got a little too close to the patch.
