In folk-magic and witchcraft, a poppet is a doll made to represent a person, for casting spells on that person (such as healing, fertility, or binding spells). These dolls may be fashioned from such materials as a carved root, grain or corn shafts, a fruit, paper, wax, a potato, clay, branches, or cloth stuffed with herbs. The intention is that whatever actions are performed upon the effigy will be transferred to the subject. This use of poppets is known as “image magic”. They are also known as Poppits and Pippies. Sometimes these dolls are mistakenly called “voodoo dolls”.

Michelob Ultra just got a little bit darker

[Michelob] takes its name from a speciality beer developed by Adolphus Busch in 1896 as a “draught beer for connoisseurs”. The early 21st century saw in the U.S. a demand for diet beer similar to that of the early 1970s, and in 2002 the Michelob line responded with the introduction of Michelob Ultra, advertised as being low in carbohydrates. Later Michelob Ultra Amber, a darker, more flavorful beer, was added to this sub-line.

Touch football‘ is a version of American football originally developed by the U.S. Navy in the 1940’s in which the players “tackle” the individual carrying the ball only by touching him [or her] with one or two hands, based on whether one is playing the one-hand touch or two-hand touch variety, as opposed to tackling him bodily to the ground or forcing a knee to touch the ground, as is normal in traditional rules versions of the game.

[Alan] Shepard smuggled a makeshift six iron golf club and two golf balls to the moon on Apollo 14, and took several swings (one-handed, due to the limited flexibility of the EVA suit). He exuberantly, and somewhat whimsically, exclaimed that the second ball went “miles and miles and miles” in the lunar gravity, but later estimated it actually went 200 to 400 yards (180 to 365 meters).

A&W Silly Jewelery

A&W [Root Beer] was first brewed in June 1919, in Lodi, California by Roy Allen. Allen sold the nickel root beer at a roadside stand at a parade for returning World War I veterans. Along with partner Frank Wright, Allen began A&W Restaurants, giving the root beer its name as well as eventually selling other food. At some A&W Restaurants the root beer is still prepared fresh, this accounting for the fact that the taste varies at each restaurant.

Mr. T was once reported to be earning around $80,000 a week for his role in The A-Team and getting $15,000 for personal appearances, but by the end of the 1990s, he was appearing only in the occasional commercial, largely because of health problems.

Mr. T get some nuts

The website was groundbreaking in soliciting match previews and reviews from its visitors, who generated some 4,000 match reports, and the website won various international design, advertising and online community awards.

In the early 2000s, deep fried candy bars (including Snickers, and Mars bars) became quite popular at U.S. state fairs and in pubs around the U.K. and Australia, although they had been a local specialty in some North of England and Scottish fish and chip shops since at least the mid-1990s.

A.” Baracus in the 1980s television series The A-Team, as boxer James “Clubber” Lang in the 1982 film Rocky III, and for his numerous appearances in the WWF and pro-wrestling. He is also well-known for his distinctive mohawk hairstyle and for wearing an excessive amount of gold jewelry.
