What will you think of next .. Chicken gibblets into the knee.
I can see how the oil would help keep the heat in the knee.. Much like a neoprene brace.
I think that they're still using the giblets as a diagnostic tool, wave them over the knee, throw them against the wall, and you can read whats wrong from the pattern that they land in. Reputedly only mildly less accurate than an MRI scan
By the way, I've seen numerous reports of WD-40 used for joint pain, maybe there's more to this than we think. AND in case you're wondering WD-40 was voted the 3rd most useful tool of all time, here are one persons list of the top ten uses for it
Cures arthritis. My father-in-law swears by this. He is a retired Air Force mechanic and when his knuckles and knees get grouchy he squirts them with WD-40. He says it works every time.
Bathroom light bulb. If you squirt the threads before you install the bulb it won’t get corroded and break when you try to change it.
Satellite TV Dish. If you live in a snowy climate the white stuff can build up on your dish and screw up your reception. Shoot a coating of WD-40 on the dish and the snow will slide off instead.
Fan rejuvenator. If you like a floor fans to keep your air circulating you know it eventually collects enough dust to slow the motor down. Take it outside and set it on a newspaper. Then spray WD-40 into the motor until it comes clean.
Pipe Tape. When I put pipe thread on a threaded pipe joint I spray the male and female connectors with WD-40. It makes an awesome waterproof connection.
Lime Remover. Got that calcified build up at the base of your faucet. Spray it with WD-40, wait a few minutes then scrape it off with a popsicle stick.
Spot Remover. Water spots on polished aluminum can be removed with an application of WD-40. It work on my Harley-Davidson.
Tree Sap Zapper. Got tree sap on your car? Put some WD-40 on a soft cloth and gently rub it away.
Sticker Remover. Did some idiot put an “I break for _____” on your car bumper. Leave your gun in the glove box. Spray the edges of the sticker with WD-40 and gently work your way toward the other end to remove the sticker and the glue.
Squirrel Attack. Are the squirrels raiding your bird feeders? Spray the pole about half way up with a generous coat of WD-40. The squirrels don’t love it.
