Kyle's pitching for the other team now.

Could it be he nicked it off of the Wealth Channel? Looks like part of a shaky get-rich scheme.

At least he's not obfuscating about it.

Did Phil make the stuff on his own or was it a collaboration?

There's a lot of cool stuff at the French forum lately, including the birth certificate of Dr. Ordinaire, which is significant in view of the fact there's been speculation about whether he actually existed.

http://arcetsenans.com/resources/CEGFC+-+Dr+Ordinaire.pdf

"Pierre fils de Nicola l'ordinaire et de susanne fagnon mari et femme demeurant à la grange des routes est né le 11 septembre 1741, et a été baptisé le même jour. Le parrain a été pîerre parreau, et la marraine magdeleine chaillet, illetrée."

Pierre son of Nicola l'Ordinaire and Susanne Fagnon husband and wife residing in La Grange des Routes was born on September 11th, 1741, and was baptized the same day. The godfather was Pîerre Parreau, and the godmother Magdeleine Chaillet, illiterate.

I didn't see that Phil said anything about collaboration, but I didn't read everything he wrote about it, either.

When in Vichy…

Clearly it doesn't do anything to enhance the healthful spa reputation of the city.

Ah, I get it now. Collaboration. You guys should let that rest - Phil is a military veteran and he doesn't deserve that crap. But yes, some French people commented that he sullied the reputation of France by putting what he did on the label. Say what you want about him, he's got a sense of humor.

More from the person (g_painblanc) who found Dr. O's birth certificate:

Considering that there is crappy shit made in France that nears this in color, claiming to be a "genuine historic recipe" I think his satire should be viewed by the French as just that…satire. It is a political statement as well, and frankly, one they should embrace. If people get bent out of shape, it means a lampooning is needed, and in fact, required. One might even view his poke as patriotism. It all depends where one is standing when looking.

I seem to recall an absinthe that said it was made with a real neat chemistry set….
