Crazy stories keep popping up about the hysteria over goblins in Zimbabwe, does anybody know of any anthropological stories or investigations into this subject matter? I'd be very interested!

Might just be an urban myth that's gotten out of hand, if so it would be difficult to pin much down in the way of evidence. They always seem to have a police chief or official making a statement about the authenticity of the incident, though, don't they?

There's a lot about this in the Zimbabwean press at present, exploding goblins, goblins attacking school girls etc.

I proof read this, its excellent. If features amongst other stuff, the ghost of a crab and a hippo headed old man who bums you in the middle of the night.
