    Honey + cinnamon for 3 days.

    So i get this cold for Fathers day. Taking Airborne, tylenol, claritin with i get handed a sheet of cures from my wife. So now i added honey + cinnamon to the mix, for three days. Maybe i can wear a dead chicken around my neck to ward off this evil cold. Anybody have anything else to add? Home cures? FPC149

    Make sure it is local honey if at all possible.

    Definitely a dead chicken. If you are too big and the chicken is not sufficient, try a dead goat instead.

    If you go the dead chicken route, do not wear it around your neck. Hollow it out from the underside and wear it on your head. Make sure it is a local chicken if at all possible.

    I keep local chickens raised on local honey in my freezer for this very purpose. Hollowed out of course, simply pull it out and wear.

    Svengoolie uses rubber chickens, and you never see him with a cold. Coincidence?

    Cinammon is from Viet Nam, honey is from Kansas, local free range chicken is to expensive. Added listerine to the mix. Nose is starting to bleed. Away with the evil cold.
