Cures For What Ailed You

Garlic Necklaces - "Gloves of garlic strung into a necklace and worn to ward off da woims". Translation: Cloves of garlic strung into a necklace and worn to ward off the worms.

Hadacol - Developed and sold by Senator Dudley J. Le Blanc on road shows with country bands. Hadacol was good for any ailment (the fact that it had a fairly high alcohol content didn't hurt, either.) Old joke: "Why did they name it Hadacol? Because they Hadacol it something!"
