Date::DayOfWeek::Sneeze - Sneezing on Sunday is bad luck!


    use Date::DayOfWeek::Sneeze
    $omen = sneeze( 25, 10, 1971 ); # day month year


 If you sneeze on a Monday, you sneeze for danger.
 Sneeze on a Tuesday, kiss a stranger.
 Sneeze on a Wednesday, sneeze for a letter.
 Sneeze on a Thursday something better.
 Sneeze on a Friday, sneeze for sorrow.
 Sneeze on a Saturday, see your sweetheart tomorrow.
 Sneeze on a Sunday, your safety seek:
 The devil will have you the whole of the week.

Bet you didn't know that sneezing on Sunday is bad luck. This week-rhyme explains the hazards of sneezing on various days of the week.


    $omen = sneeze( 25, 10, 1971 ); # day month year
