Superstitious locals in a Thai north eastern village hired a backhoe to dredge a klong after many people had lottery wins.

Locals hire a backhoe to dredgeonvinced that they were next the locals clubbed together to hire the heavy machinery to haul 20 “takhian” tree logs from a section of the Sak Long canal that leads into the Pa Sak river in Lomsak.

Tables were set up and mediums employed to get the numbers for Friday’s latest draw of the national lottery.

The spirit of the logs was promised pink traditional costumes if she came up trumps with the winning numbers.

It was deemed that the following would make everyone rich: 404, 043, 044,048, 098, 358, 04 and 09.

There followed a mad dash into town to buy up all the relevant tickets.

Back in April dredging work dragged up two takhian logs and many people in the village of Lan Ba got rich, reported Sanook whose reporters hotfooted it to the area to see the lottery fever in full flow.

Thaivisa notes that the takhian log is sacred and inhabited by a magical spirit of a woman that, once appeased and promised earthly goods, will bestow her endless bounty on the faithful.

That is the theory, anyway……so let’s get rich!
