SheWolf Challenge: How To Become A Werewolf

My lovely friend Velvet from vvb32reads is hosting a SheWolf Challenge.   Lately I have been reading quite a few werewolf books, so in honor of all things hairy, you can expect some howling posts from me!  To start things off, and to get you in the mood, I present..
e-how's directions on How To Become A Werewolf

You need not suffer from lycanthropy, the mental disease of werewolves, to become a wolfman. Below are some shortcuts to becoming a wolf.

Difficulty: Easy
Step 1- Sleep on the ground in an open field on a Friday night when the moon is full. Many Europeans who lived several centuries ago approved of this method.

Step 2- Drink water from a wolf's footprint. Two hundred years ago, Balkan natives thought this act would surely help you grow hair and fangs.

Step 3- Satisfy your thirst in certain magical bodies of water, although the whereabouts of these are unknown. If you find that discouraging, drink wherever wolf packs drink.

Step 4- Transform yourself by eating a wolf's brains. Just follow the easy instructions listed in the Wicked Witch's Cookbook (author unknown).

Step 5- Find a French priest and have him put a hex on you. Many incorrigibles were purportedly disciplined in this way in the centuries prior to the 1800s.

or if that doesn't work...
e-how offers another method, however, you will have to investige this one at your own risk.  Good luck!

**OK, JUST IN CASE you have done this and decide your waxing bill will be too much, stay tuned, later this weekend, I will post directions to CURE your lycanthropy!
