    good question. i thought i'd go look it up and wikipedia says:

    The belief originates in the system of African-American folk magic known as hoodoo. A number of strictures attached to the charm that are now observed mostly in the breach:

    1. First, not any old foot from a rabbit will do: it is the left hind foot of a rabbit that is useful as a charm.

    2. Second, not any left hind foot of a rabbit will do; the rabbit must have been shot or otherwise captured in a cemetery.

    3. Third, at least according to some sources, not any left hind foot of a rabbit shot in a cemetery will do: the phase of the moon is also important. Some authorities say that the rabbit must be taken in the full moon, while others hold instead that the rabbit must be taken in the new moon. Some sources say instead that the rabbit must be taken on a Friday, or a rainy Friday, or Friday the 13th. Some sources say that the rabbit should be shot with a silver bullet, while others say that the foot must be cut off while the rabbit is still alive.

    4. Fourth, according to still more sources, not just any left hind foot cut off a live rabbit shot with a silver bullet in a cemetery during a full moon on a rainy Friday the 13th will do; the marksman must also be cross-eyed.
    interesting .... the rest of the info can be found at the site

    Holy Crap! This'll really test my mother's patience.. now I have to have a one on one about me growing up Hoodoo. Next April Fool's. hehe

    What an odd thing to have go "main stream". Thanks barefootdyke! Oh, and the commercial is way wrong then, because all the lucky feet they had reattached were on the front paws.

    MRD - this cracked me up. I haven't seen that commercial but when my nephew was just learning to speak, he used to shriek that he was "HONGRY" at the top of his lungs. It's a family joke now. My Mom calls me and says "Are you HONGRY? Let's get together for lunch..."

    Oh, so you can REALLY say: "cause your mama says your hongry"

    One of my first few dates with my husband, he took me rabbit hunting. In the cemetery. No lie! Little did I know, we could have used the rabbit's foot. We didn't get any rabbits that day, but talk about a redneck date.
    And I not only went out with him AGAIN, but married him.

    I find myself missing that Asian woman that "whoops" in the Hillshire commercial. She's so cute! It just doesn't seem right without her.

    Re: Commercials I love

    I finally saw the rabbit one. It's for Traveler's Insurance. I like the Beniful commercial. Okay I love any commercial that has cute animals in it (kittens, dogs, rabbits) I still remember one from a long time ago for Visa Check card where this guy went to a pet store with his daughter and they wanted to buy a couple of bunnies but he was paying by check so it was taking forever because they have to clear it with the bank. Every time the scene changed, there were more and more bunnies and by the end of the ad the store was rampant with them and the owner of the store thought one bunny was the phone and put it to his ear and said "I have to call this in."

    Re: Commercials I love

    I like the commercial where the tween is talking to her mom about her cell phone bill, but she's talking in acronyms. She says something about "my bff Jill" but she totally is talking in "texting" type talk. The mother is yelling about the cell phone (texting) bill and she has no idea what the daughter is saying.

    it's hard to explain, but it makes me laugh because that is so going to be me and my daughter someday

    Oh, it is me and my mom! Only whereas she says "get off the computer now," I reply gaily "Yeah, w/e. Brb."

    I don't know if it's national, but there's this new gas station thingy, Beyond Petrolium. They have the corniest commercials with cartoon toddlers driving cars, with this really happy music in the background. I hate it so much, but I have to dance when it comes on.
