Ask Boss Warlock: Where Do Modern Witches Get the Human Fat for Their Flying Ointment?

Flying ointment- the intimate trip ...

Dear Boss Warlock,

I'm cooking up my first batch of flying ointment, but I'm having a really difficult time finding the human fat that I need for the recipe.

I'm not into human sacrifice, and I'm afraid I just don't have the stamina for grave robbing these days.

Not to mention: how do I reconcile this with 'An it harm none'?

Dear Sty,

Grave robbing? Human sacrifice? Seriously, Sty, how 1980s.

(Oh, we were earnest in those days.)

These days, any witch worth the wood to burn has an agreement with the local liposuction clinic. How's that for 'An it harm none'?

Try searching liposuction near me.

Have a good flight (and see you at the Sabbat),

Boss Warlock


Do you have a question?

Boss Warlock has an answer.

Write him c/o the Paganistan blog.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.
