10:36 am - Pagan gods, rosaries, and gold coins!
Man, that Freyr guy is a no good cheat, isn't he?

Couple finds gold, puts cash in a box, builds an altar to "Fray", prays the rosary for nine days, loses everything.

Okay, so maybe it isn't Freyr's fault. It could be that this "Fray" character is just an impostor with a similar name. Or maybe Freyr doesn't like rosaries and so he laid the smite down on the guys who came up with the plan and turned their money into newspaper.

What really gets to me, I think, is that the con artists were. . . Hispanic, probably Columbians?

Rosaries and northern European gods and Columbians? I can see A relating to B, and B possibly relating to C, and A and C certainly relate, but as a triangle of relationships, well. . . I'm sort of at a loss.

That sounds very similar to the whole "cursed money" scam, which is frequently used on Hispanic people.
