My father-in-law makes a liquid version of this that will either cure what ails you or make you forget you were sick at all.

Sounds a hell of a lot better than that crap that they put into flu shots, that don’t guarantee that you won’t get the flu, by the way. Sounds a lot like the whiskey, honey and lemon juice that we took back in the 70’s. That DID work by the way.

Not only DID it work, it still does and if you have enough you don’t care whether it works or not.

If they’d leave the pepper out of the sorbet, I’d try to get some and I don’t have the flu.
