Forkola Jell

"Old Doc Forkola" is a most unfortunate moniker. But was there anything that Forkola Jell couldn't do? Or should we ask, Was there anything that Forkola Jell could do?!?

As far as sheer verbiage, this one cannot compare to a Dr. Bronner's All-One! Soap label. And I notice that the mysterious "nasal catarrh" can be treated with Forkola Jell, so I guess that must be a point in its favor. The description of treatable injuries in the complaint sounds very much like Witch Hazel with petroleum base added - Grandma P. used to swear by witch hazel and would slather it on any boo-boo we kids could come up with.

Isn't this basically Vicks Vapo-Rub?

My thought exactly, Ross!

Cthulhu probably has catarrh. That would make anyone mean if they had it with all those tentacles.
