NAME
       Date::DayOfWeek::Nails -	Cut your nails on a Friday, cut	them for woe
       ...

SYNOPSIS
	   use Date::DayOfWeek::Nails;
	   $advice = nails( 25,	10, 1971 ); # day month	year

DESCRIPTION
	Cut your nails on a Monday, cut	them for news.
	Cut your nails on a Tuesday, a new pair	of shoes.
	Cut your nails on a Wednesday, cut them	for health.
	Cut your nails on a Thursday, cut them for wealth.
	Cut your nails on a Friday, cut	them for woe.
	Cut your nails on a Saturday, a	journey	to go.
	Cut your nails on a Sunday, you	cut them for evil,
	For all	the next week you'll be	ruled by the devil.

       Yes, this is strange. And I'm looking for the source of these beliefs.
       I think I probably have to read a few more chapters. But	this amused
       me, so here it is.

       The reference for this is The Oxford Companion to the Year, however, it
       does not	say exactly where this rhyme comes from.
