Madame Oracula McMorbidly
#E2 in my Macabre McMorbidly Family Portrait Series
Sister to Squire Drummel and mother to Hoodoo. Every member of the family had their fortune told by Auntie Oracula at one point or another. She would respond to them in a terribly performed limerick. For example, the failed family ballet dancer Olor McMorbidly went to see her early in her career and received this cheery little ditty... “A McMorbidly travelled to France, to perform a terrible dance. She slipped on her shoes, the audience booed, so she killed them and merrily pranced!”
The McMorbidly Family Portraits were discovered in a battered and moldy sealed trunk, which had somehow wound up below the root system of a huge black tree on the grounds of McMorbidly Manor (Now in Ruins). With each photo was a mysterious description written in jittery script by persons unknown. The portraits and paper were dated back to the mid to late 1800's. Who was the artist/photographer? How had history forgotten such an infamous and lengthy family legacy? We may never know but pay close attention as each family member and their stories from all their past generations are revealed!
