Hoary old folk sayings

They say if you peel the mandarin all in one go, you can predict your future husband's recipe for strudel, but in my case that doesn't apply as I am wearing socks. 


She who sleeps with the trimmings from her husband's left moustache underneath her right foot will, it is rumoured, cause bad luck for any politician who comes into contact with her left inner elbow. Old Serbian method for fixing elections. 


He who drinks black coffee before sniffing thrice will rise lustily from their bed, plough all their crops in one day, predict all the words on Wheel of Fortune, and eat the Borscht of propitiousness. He who drinks black coffee after sniffing thrice is Stalin. Old Russian proverb.
