Over the hill doll

Saw this at a craft show this week. The lady was charging $l5.00 (a tad high I thought). They were just a white cotton doll (gingerbread style body) with a bit of wild yarn hair and felt penned in features. On the body was sayings like "sagging chin", "ulcers", hang nail...creaky knees...those are the ones I can remember. These various shall I say "medical conditions" were printed on the appropriate areas of the doll body. There was a poem attached and said something along the lines of place a pin in the areas that hurt and it will take the pain away...Does this sound familiar to anyone? If so I'd like a copy of the poem and just what medical conditions were on the body....I'd like to make one for a gag gift ....Thanks.
