Disneyland's Shrunken Ned

If you go deep in the the jungle of Disneyland's Adventureland and stop at the first shop on your right, you may be able to find Shrunken Ned, the Jungle Witch Doctor. Shrunken Ned is a fortune teller machine that dispenses health advice, despite his lack of a body. He's one of four machines in the park: Esmeralda, Fortune Red, and the Fortune Telling Lamp. I attribute my love of fortune telling machines to Esmeralda who has been lying to me since I was small child.

Getting advice from Shrunken Ned is easy. You pop your quarter into the machine and put your palm on the wooden hand painted (pictured below) and Shrunken Ned will do his work. 

Here's a video of Shrunken Ned in action: 

Once Ned is done talking, the machine will spit out a card for you with a drawing of Ned on one side, and dubious health advice on the other. 

I have to say that he was right about me needing more sleep.
