Action Johnny: Next thing I know, I'm blowing lines of voodoo powder off the back of a monkey's paw I bought in Calcutta. Now I'm all out of wishes.
Referencing the short story by W.W. Jacobs, first published in 1902. The monkey's paw is a wish-granting artifact that gives its owner three wishes. As in many such stories, the first two wishes go awry or are fulfilled in unexpected and undesirable ways.
