(Semi) Wordless Chicken Tuesday ~ Dive In...The Soup Is Fine!

In fact, it's just what the Doctah ordered!
Because Chicken Soup acts as an anti-inflammatory by inhibiting the movement of neutrophils (immune system cells that participate in the body's inflammatory response)...AND it temporarily speeds up the movement of mucus through the nose, helping relieve congestion and limiting the amount of time viruses are in contact with the nose lining. In other words...

It gets the snot flowing so you feel better faster!


Well, it should come as no surprise that besides being a PhD Genious of Modern Medicine, Doctor Shoal is also a gourmet cook...but then, I'm no slouch in the kitchen either...so, in the interest of modern medicine (and my ego) I challenged Doctah Shoal to a little friendly competition to see
WHO'S CHICKEN SOUP could make the most mucus!

Doctah Shoal wasted no time in whooping up big batch of booger producing
Chicken Soup ala Shoal...
...and offered free bowls of it to hoards of under-the-weather bloggers...

...while the Beaver Taming/Nursing Staff helped me ladle up gallons of my delicious Even Better Than A Hugankiss Chicken Soup
to throngs of snot-nosed little Twitters!

The results?
Do you really wanna know?
It's kinda gross...
OK...
Click here for the effects of Doctah Shoal's soup
and here for mine!

(I think it was a tie!)

"Lilly's Life has left a new comment on the post "Question About The Bush":

Mmm I go through phases, shaven, trimmed and unshaven. I couldnt do the laser stuff though. I have tried it but nah. I like having options - just like I change my hair styles (hair on my head). I have never dyed it though - then again not sure what I will think when I go grey.....oh the joys.
