    I don’t know, but the drinking didn’t hurt him: he’s still alive and editing on Wikipedia.

    Is the guy in the ad supposed to be the doctor who created the cure or an actual drunk guy with a weeks growth of beard?

    Looks like the Post Office got in on his wayward use of caps in 1973


    Oh wait, I guess it was because the product was bogus

    There’s a funny typo/scanning error in the article – “Sin” instead of Gin.
