Charms

This one’s fer wardin’ off wolves. This is for stoppin’ evil spirits from ent’ring yer home. This one’s fer stoppin’ evil spirits from ent’ring yer head while yer dreamin’ or sleepin’ off a wicked night o’ drink. This one’s fer lice. This one’s a best seller – lucky rabbit’s food, pulled straight off th’ thigh. This one’s fer fertility. This one’s fer courage, good with this one fer strength, ’cause you don’t want no courage without no strength. Bad news, that. This one’s fer protection from the elements. This one’s fer protection from magicks. This one… well, I dinnae know what this one does. This one’s fer birth control, but I’d recommend usin’ a condom on top o’ it (not really field tested, ya know?). This one’s fer communin’ with th’ dead. This one don’t do much but it’s delicious in a venison stew. This one… yeah, no, you don’t want tha’ one. We don’t really talk about it. This one’s a keeper, though – makes food taste better. I swear to’t. This one’s fer cursin’ people. This one’s fer beatin’ people o’er the head. This here’s a charm to protect ye from other charms. This one sounds like a cow bell when ye give it a good whack. See? Well, what d’ye think?
