MYTHICAL MONDAY 39 - FUTAKUCHI-ONNA

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futakuchi-onna

 

“The origin of a futakuchi-onna's second mouth is often linked to how little a woman eats. In many stories, the soon-to-be futakuchi-onna is a wife of a miser and rarely eats. To counteract this, a second mouth mysteriously appears on the back of the woman's head. The second mouth often mumbles spiteful and threatening things to the woman and demands food. If it is not fed, it can screech obscenely and cause the woman tremendous pain.”
