Whitney Houston’s Death Inspires Strange Theory
Whitney Houston's body is barely-even-maybe-cold and the conspiracy theorists are lighting up internet search engines with their odd rumors.
The biggest one — and perhaps the funniest — is something I call "The Aaron Ramsey Curse." Ramsey, for those not in the know, is a Welsh footballer and the captain of the national team (ever heard of the team Arsenal?), and he occasionally scores a goal or two in key games.
A writer for the men's site JOE.IE has a theory about the Queen of Pop's death:
"Every time the Welsh international scores for his club, a a momentous death occurs. Sounds ridiculous, right? Let's look at the facts…"
Allow me to point out that the facts are, as you will see, quite a stretch:
On May 1, 2011, Ramsey scored the only goal in a 1-0 win against Manchester United. The next day Osama bin Laden was killed by US troops.
In October of last year, the midfielder was even busier, as he scored after a long absence against Tottenham Hotspur in 2-1 loss on October 3. Three days later, Apple supremo Steve Jobs died. In the same month, Ramsey scored against Marseille in the Champions League on October 19. The following day, Libyan despot Colonel Gaddafi was shot.
It goes on and on. Sure, the writer is probably trying to amuse us with an exaggerated, satirical conspiracy theory. But you just know at least one guy is going to see this and think it's true and Ramsey will be forever known as the guy who cursed Whitney Houston. And Gaddafi.
