Lucky Rabbit's Foot
The belief that a rabbit's foot will bring good luck is one of the oldest superstitions related to animals, going back to 600 BC. In doing some quick web research, I found that there are many different variations to the story, especially in terms of how, when, and by whom the rabbit foot is obtained. (One version says it must be taken by a cross-eyed hunter during a full moon.) In all cases, the lucky foot is a back foot.

I wonder what a rabbit carries for good luck? (I know, it's an old joke!)
