Bob has done some traveling in his time and while on vacation in South Africa someone offered him some Zam-Buk! He of course said, “no thank you” at first because he had absolutely no idea what a Zam-Buk was.
Bob was on a safari ride, and the temperatures were grueling, a lot like Austin in summer. Only a true Texan goes to a hotter place to get away from the summer heat. The lead guide looked over at Bob and asked if he wanted some Zam-Buk for his mouth. He then proceeded to take out a tiny green tin and just yelled; “ZAM-BUK CURES EVERYTHING!” with a viscious smile. Bob knew he and the safari guide were going to be great friends. The safari guide then un-sheathed what looked like a dang samurai sword and hacked at the tiny green tin. Bob thought, “now this is a safari ride!”
It took 2 samurai sword whacks for the tiny green tin to open. Lo and behold Zam-Buk is basically vicks vapor rub for South Africans. He told Bob to put some on his mouth because, as he phrased it, they looked like “cracking clay.” Apparently, Zam-Buk is also effective for sore throats and sun burns. If only one could open the dang tin!
Zam-Buk, We Cure Everything…
But only one person has the power to open the tin.
The moral of this story is if you have “cracking clay” mouth and need a cure, don’t ever EVER close your Zam-Buk tin.
