    • Protection from a Man with a Hex (Said while reaching your right arm over your head and touching your left earlobe with your eyes closed.) Wink'um pink'um, nodamus rex, protect us all, from the man with the hex

    • "Come Fish Come" (Said to ward off bad Omens) Come fish come, come fish come, Sam's at the gate, with a frosted cake, come fish come. Fly away buzzard, fly away crow, way down South where the winds don't blow. Rub your nose, and give two winks, and save us from this awful jinx
