Le Petomane did this, but not with his mouth ...

Dr Ordinaire:
Im neutral [Swiss Miss] due to self imposed abstinence/celibacy during Lent.
When I do return to Absinthe, Ive been researching new ways to drink:
1.Take Absinthe bottle
2.slug it and hold in mouth
3.take water bottle
4.slug it and hold in mouth
5.let louche
6.add sugar (optional)
According to my reasearch this method man was actually used in 1900.
Warning: unless you have been on this forum and posted regularly for 1 year dont try this at home or in public. You might be wasting overpriced absinthe.

Sort of a backhand to all, I say...

My first reading of your post (more like scanning) yielded the conclusion that you were with THEM (the Jadeites).

Then I read it again and suddenly it looked you were favouring me.

Then I read it for the third time...and darn...I don't know.

Good job, Lars. Anything that makes you scratch your head after 2 readings is GOOD!

Dr Ordinaire:
Another coincidence!
When the neighborhood kids started offering a mix of different varieties of Play Absinthe, we stuck by our brand: "Desert Leech Authentic 1900 68%".
Then someones Mom bought Lysol and all hell broke loose in the neighborhood.
Because Lysol did louche better than Pine Sol we thought we were through. They called this "Sacred Cow Authentic 1900 Absinthe 68%".
Kids acted as if this was a revelation and a major fight ensued. Everyone took sides in hope of scoring some free "Absinthe", that was clear.
It tasted good and kids drank it like, well, Absinthe. There were piles of kids everywhere.
Until one day some smart-ass said: "I certainly wouldn't fork out money just to drink something that tasted like something people drank back in 1900 for fucks sake".
After that noone played Absinthe anymore. I miss that game.

I once saw a TV program where a wino punctured a can of Lysol and poured it in water. Very nice louche too...

It looked deadly, so I checked a can of Lysol. It's almost all ethanol.

Pine Sol by the shot! "None of that Eurotrash voodoo crap with water sugar and other phony ritual BS."

What a coincidence! In our neighborhood we actually did use Pine Sol when we played Absinthe. The Lemon Scent was our Lebleu.
We werent all that creative though, we never thought of doubling the prices for resale, faking spoons, bribing others to sing our praises, jack up the sugar price again, or use "knock down your door" scare tactics. And we didnt play absinthe on Sundays.
The kids on the next block did though, I wonder whatever happened to them?

... that Pine Sol has a nice heavy louche? Don't know about its bouquet, though.

(For those of you outside North America, Pine Sol's a heavy pine oil cleaner)
