Back in the Midwest, when I was a sprout, we told city folk about a similar cure but used genuine, corn fed cow manure; not some chicken-sh1t second rate stuff.

My father tells people he isn't losing his hair, his brain is growing and forcing it off his scalp.

Now I get to tell people the same!

Ah lavender scented chicken shit, that's MUCH better. I hate to say it, but Mr. Horten is full of hair fertilizer.
