Bob Sr. the alchemist had recently died. He invented only one magic potion, the Cingumbulating Stone 2001. It had the power to make any metal into gold (just like the Philosopher's Stone). It was nowhere to be seen. However, he seemed to have left instructions on how to make it:

Take 12 toenails,
Add 5 nincompoops,
Mix that with 14 salads.
Next add 9 icicles,
2 dead frogs,
And 6 wet rocks.
Finally, put 14 cats in,
Along with 12 ace of spades,
7 diamond bracelets,
And 9 monkeys' paws.

His son, Bob Jr., will not receive the inheritance of the ultimate stone if he cannot figure out this puzzle. Can you help him?

ummm... I got confused by the wording. I wasn't looking to find the stone but how to make it. I just thought well, just follow the recipe.

pretty good one, keep it up. I think all my mind. These kinds of teasers can mean a lot of directions to solve, and to be able to go all the directions really take time. anyway, keep it up.

No matter how difficult a Teaser is, the answer should be spelled out clearly for those participants who may lack the knowledge to arrive at a conclusion, a correct conclusion. Therefore, this Teaser was Boring and unfair, even though I rated it positive. You know fun and hard. Even though Braingle is not a school, show off your true talent.
