I'm posting mostly over at Quirky Cookery right now, where I play with my food and teach you to have fun with it, too. Come check me out?


Have a boil on your butt?

Neither do I. But last year at camp, some guy who all the girls swooned over, ended up with a boil on his butt that got bad enough he ended up going to the hospital. And one night, the stress of camp (or maybe it was the intoxication) got to him and he proceeded to show a large group of people his lovely boil.

Now before you become disturbed, there really is a point. He should've used tomato paste to fix it! The acids would've soothed the pain and brought the boil to a head. How do I know? Well, I don't. But someone over at International Home Remedies has apparently tried it with success.

Wee! See that! Point well made, hehe. But yeah, the site is full of remedies used all over the world and if you have a quirky cure that has worked for you before, go ahead and add it! You never know what might just work for someone else's boils...

And while you're at it, check out Forgotten Medical Cures.

(Mouth hangs open) He showed it to everyone? Uh, that must have been interesting.

I'll have to give that tomato paste a try as I have experienced the boil on my chin. Yuck, what a nasty word -- boil.

Unless it's used in the sense of boiling sugar to create candy or no-bake cookies. Then it's a fine word.

First time I've heard of the tomato paste recipe, but I guess it's possible.
