  • Cure what ails you with a skillfully prepared extract of the finest nouns, verbs and adverbs combined with wit and whimsy. Each ingredient is a superb alternative to the usually recommended tabloid hyperbole. Combined they take away those tired feelings frequently the result of an impoverished imagination which weakens the will to write and render them powerless. These facts have caused this preparation to be adopted by storytellers around the globe and has earned the hearty gratitude of millions of Cowbirders who have used it and bear witness to its excellence. When steeped in a generous spirit and taken with a broad smile it has been known to cure several other disorders.

    My thanks to Dr. J.C. Ayer & Co., Lowell, MA for inspiration
