I used this many times when I worked in sales. It works like a charm, so it's well worth the nastiness.

1) Gargle deeply with Listerine getting it as deep in your throat as possible. Swallow some of it to ensure the bugs in your throat get killed.

2) Swallow half a tea spoon of Vick's Vaporub.

Inside 30 minutes you will no longer have a sore throat.

My mother and my grandmother have both sworn by swallowing Vicks for years. Maybe it's a Pennsylvania thing (that's where my mom's family is from) but I wouldn't put that chit in my mouth. :mad:

My mom learned this from a nurse years back too. If you take a pea-sized amount of Vick's Vaporub with a glass of water right before you go to bed when you feel your throat starting to get sore, etc., and you'll wake up feeling great. If it starts to come back the next evening, take another. But be careful only to take a small amount. Also, She keeps her jar in the freezer so it's easier to swallow. It does work.

It's just petroleum jelly with mentholatum extract. No big whoop. It's not like I'm making a sandwich with the Elmo.

For the last time people, get it straight! I did not ingest anybody's god damned ear wax! I put it on my tongue, snapped a pic, spit the Elmo into the toilet and immediately washed my mouth out about 6k times! :mad:

Guy had these candles that you stick in your ears and they suck the ear wax out. It was pretty disgusting looking.

He had a dare if someone would put it in their mouth and take a pic he would give them a nice buff and some cash (I think).

Coindexter signed up for it and posted the pic... :vom: and the rest is history.

This happened at Thiggy's place...so no link to it.

I'm sure someone still has the pic...especially Coindexter. teehee:

He did it. I did it. Here's the thing: the whole incident went down over a practice known as "ear candling." I had never heard of it before when Guy started a thread about how much he liked the results. Being a naturally curious fellow I googled it and did some reading. All of the standard sites said that it was bullchit.

Somebody posted to the thread that it was bullchit and Guy responded with a wager - put the wax in your mouth, snap a pic and receive a MS 1913 T1 buff - but only if you were a true disbeliever. I didn't think it was actually earwax. I assumed it was remnants of the candle itself. When the wax showed up I was dissappointed to find out that I was wrong.

Being as I am a man of my word I went ahead and followed through. It sucked, it was nasty, and both Guy and I agree that if we had it to do over again neither of us would.
