A is for Abracadabra

Bet you didn't know that the quickest way to cure what ails you is a little magic. At least according to Quintus Serenus Sammonicus, physician to the Roman emperor Caracalla, in his second century treatise Liber Medicinalis. You just need an amulet inscribed with:

A - B - R - A - C - A - D - A - B - R - A
   A - B - R - A - C - A - D - A - B - R
      A - B - R - A - C - A - D - A - B
         A - B - R - A - C - A - D - A
            A - B - R - A - C - A - D
               A - B - R - A - C - A
                 A - B - R - A - C
                    A - B - R - A
                       A - B - R
                          A - B
Alternately, put in the Bugs Bunny episode where he sings the phrase over and over. Most likely this is why we were all so healthy as children and later begin to show the signs of aging and ill health.
