: : Miz Crone,
: : I'm so glad yer still alive! What would happen to poor old Jeroboam if ye met yer Maker?
: : Now, I got a real good potion fer snakebite: an infusion of bog asphodel. I'll be right over to fetch it to ye. Mebbe that Miz Sassy woman'd bring along some o' her good rum. Thass good fer snakebite and whatever else ails ye.
: : Yer faithful servant,
: : Jeroboam Jones
: Yo Jones,
: I'll take some a thet rum, but what in tarnation is thet thar 'bog asphodel.' prey tell?
: Old Crone
Bog asphodel? Why, the narcissus is the asphodel of the poets. I'll mash the roots an' make a nice poultice an' put it where ye were bitten...uh, dependin' on where ye were bitten, o' course.
Bog asphodel is also good fer gettin' rid o'mice an' will keep yer pigs from gittin diseased.
Ye got the rum?
