  •  my grandmother's recipe and it's guaranteed!! (none)
    chicken soup every day... and put 10 small rocks in your pocket. Each day remove a rock. When the rocks are gone, you'll be better.

    Adding anything else to that recipe is a waste of time! (And if you don't need the exercise, use very little rocks).

    •  Sounds like a wart-removing charm (none)
      My dad told me this:
      Go to the graveyard at night and get a pebble.
      Every night, rub the pebble on the wart. The 7th night, wrap the pebble in a clean handkercheif and throw it in the river.
      He swore it worked for him.
      Me, I went to the local drugstore (at age 9) and asked for some Preparation H. The owner couldn't help laughing at me; it was years before I found out what was so funny....
