  • Yikes! Demon rainbow--definitely one for chained_bear's "Vicious Sheep" list.

  • An African demon rainbow. Can you believe a rainbow that turns predatory? MUKUNGA-MBURA swallowed up a whole tribe — including livestock. Only one boy escapes, and when he is old enough, he sets out to set about the malignant rainbow. But when it comes to the crunch, the rainbow demon turns cowardy-custard.

    He holds out a hand and implores the boy to make a hole in one of the fingers. (Yes, a rainbow with fingers — MUKUNGA-MBURA is not your picture book pretty thing). The boy does as he is asked — and all the villagers pour out of the hole intact.

    This is all very wonderful. But after the rejoicing dies down the boy broods. What is to stop MUKUNGA-MBURA doing it all over again? So he goes back and kills him, chopping him to bits. From one leg (yes legs as well) thrown in a pool, all the swallowed livestock pours out. (From Godchecker.com)
