Witchiest Get Rich Scheme

So what’s the oldest-latest scheme for making money?  The art of Necropants, as detailed in the Icelandic Museum of Sorcery and Witchcraft.  I’ll let you read it from the source, but be warned that it involves wearing a dead man’s skin as pants.

Besides being the funniest scheme I’ve ever come across, it also reminding me that we shouldn’t neglect funky folklore in our fantasy worlds.  And remember what they say–truth is stranger than fiction.
