The heirloom you least want...

From mooselet...

I heard an interview on the radio with the author of a book on poisons. He told a story about an "Everlasting Pill" that had been in one family for generations. It was simply a blob of antimony, a toxic metal. Whenever a member of the family was constipated they would take this antimony pill and in a few hours the body would violently expel it, solving the problem. Then the pill would be recovered and washed, ready for the next time it was needed.

What's wrong with a nice prune danish, I ask you?
