An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

You have to feed a cold.

Rub toothpaste on a bug bite.

Just a few of those “at home remedies” that you might have heard in your life.

Nowadays, you’ve got people butt-chugging sunlight and a bunch of Karens rubbing essential oils on everything from warts to lice.

Here’s another one of those “internet health tips” that I can’t believe anyone falls for.

I’ve never had hemorrhoids, but I have suffered through diverticulits and many years of back-door issues as a result. And I’ll always advocate for baby wipes over traditional toilet paper even though it’s TERRIBLE for your plumbing. But I don’t think I’d ever shove a frozen potato up my anus for relief.

As soon as I saw this today, the old Jerky Boys bit about the tennis ball machine popped into my head.
