Flood, Fortune, and Fillet of a Fenny Snake

There comes a time in the affairs of the Lemming when, taken at the flood, leads on to slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.

One the other hand, fortune cookies seldom mention furniture polish, although both begin with the letter "f."

No, wait, that's not it. Let's try this again.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

And Macbeth didn't think their advice might not be entirely reliable?!

That's all the Lemming has time for this week. People from Porlock are at the door.

More, from places where the mome raths outgrabe:
