북미 서부 산악지대에 희한한 괴녀(怪女)가 산다. 별명이 ‘팔꿈치 마녀’다. 사람을 발견하고 흥분하면 팔꿈치에서 송곳처럼 생긴 뼈가 살을 뚫고 나온다. 이 송곳으로 사람을 찍어 죽인다. 사람이 죽으면 돌로 된 이빨로 살을 찢어 먹는다.

이은재가 문희상을 팔꿈치로 공격했다. 공격 포즈, 표정 등을 면밀히 들여다보니 ‘팔꿈치 마녀’가 틀림없다. 금년의 마지막 ‘귀씻소’를 장식해주신 이은재에게 감사말씀 드린다.

이은재, 문희상 팔꿈치로 가격 후 오히려 "성희롱하지 마"


이은재 자유한국당 의원이 27일 국회 본회의를 열기 위해 이동하는 문희상 국회의장을 팔꿈치로 가격하며 "성희롱 하지마"라고 발언을 한 것이 연일 화제다.

이날 오후 이 의원을 비롯한 한국당 의원들은 공직선거법 개정안 표결을 막기 위해 본회의장에 입장한 뒤 의장석과 연단 앞에서 인간띠를 만들어 놓고 농성에 들어갔다. 특히 거센 항의를 보여준 이은재 의원의 모습이 누리꾼들을 중심으로 주목받고 있다.

이 의원은 문 의장을 거의 밀치다시피 하다 급기야 오른쪽 팔꿈치로 문 의장 옆구리를 가격했다. 그럼에도 문 의장이 물러나지 않자 돌연 "성희롱 하지 마라. 내 얼굴 만지지 마라"고 외쳤다. (중략)

국회법 제165조·166조·167조에 따르면 누구든지 국회 회의를 방해할 목적으로 회의장이나 그 부근에서 폭력행위 등을 해서는 안된다고 규정하고 있다. 또 이를 어길시 최대 징역 7년 또는 2000만 원의 벌금에 처하도록 하고 있다. (더펙트 2019.12.28.)

전설

As Iyash got closer to the mudookwan, he noticed that there was a string that came out of the entrance and led to the shore. So he walked in. There on the either side of the entrance sat two elderly woman. There were both blind. In fact, they never had eyes. Where the eyes would have been there was only a bulging skin as if something was inside. They were eyeless. They also had very pointed elbows. The elbows did not have skin but were made of bone structure similiar to an antler of a moose. The ends of the elbows were sharply pointed.

The woman did not know that Iyash was inside their mudookwan. All of a sudden there was a bird outside chirping. They both looked up. One of them said, There's our signal". This was their signal bird that came in the morning, noon and late afternoon to let them know that it was time for breakfast, lunch and supper. They did not know the times of day because they could not see.

When they heard the bird, one of them got up, pick up her pail and went down the lake to get some water. She used the string as a guide from her mudookwan to the shore so she'll know how far to go and not fall into the water. When she came back in she put a pot of water on the fire to cook. When the water started to boil she reached over behind her and took out a bag of food. It was actually a bag made of penis skin. She used the penis bag to keep human remains and fat in. The two woman were cannibals. They killed and ate their visitors.

The woman took out some human flesh with fat and threw it into the pot. She took a stick and used it to swirl her cooking. She was trying to crack open whatever it was she threw in there. Once in a while she would slurp the stick to taste for flavour. After a while she said to the other woman,

"Sister, there is no flavour to my cooking. How is yours?"

The other woman swirled her stick in her own pot. She slurped the stick and she replied,

"No, mine has no flavour either".

They sat there quietly. They knew that the reason there was no flavour to their cooking was because they are running out of meat. Then one of them said to the other,

"Sister, remember that message about Iyash coming this way? I wonder when he will get here", she was thinking that Iyash would make nice fresh meat.

Suddenly one of them started poking her stick all around. There was hesitation when she finally hit Iyash with her stick.

"Iyash?" she asked.

"Yes?", replied Iyash with a question.

"Iyash, mash Iyash", she said now very surprised.

It did not take very long for the three of them to relax and have a nice visit. One of them asked Iyash to let them know when he was ready to leave. After some time of visiting and sharing stories Iyash finally said that he should be on his way. "After all," he said, "I have a long way to go". Before that, though, he had placed the black caribou fur from the foxwoman in the entrance. As soon as Iyash told the woman that he was ready to leave they both headed for the entrance to block Iyash from leaving. SItting back to back to each other on the doorway the two woman began swinging their sharp elbows in unison. This is the way that they kill their visitors. They were quite good at stabbing their victims to death with their sharp elbows. But, this time it was only the black caribou fur that had been placed there that they were attacking. They shredded the fur to pieces. They, however, were a little too careless in their attack. They accidently stabbed each other although one of them shouted,

“팔꿈치 괴녀를 잡으러 가자!” Four members of the Ojibwa tribe perform a war dance.(circa 1800)

"no,no, sister, it's me you are stabbing."

  When it was over, both of them lay dead on the floor. Iyash looked around, frowned and shrugged his shoulders, "Nukaypikoo, I don't know", he said. He took out his knife and cut off all the sharp elbows and slit holes where the eyes should be.

"This is the way you were meant to look", he said to the dead woman.

Iyash left the house and resumed his journey. He could hear laughter coming from the mudookwan. It was the two woman who were laughing in happiness saying,

"Gee, that Iyash. Look what he did to us to make us better."

Iyash smiled as he walked away. If Iyash had not cut off the sharp elbows and made holes for their eyes, that's the way men and women would have looked as people got older.
