Full Version: An absinthe reference

I found the following reference about absinthe in the memoirs of Argentine writer Arturo Jauretche. The book is called "Pantalones Cortos" (short pants) referencing the "rite of passage" from childhood to adolescente that meant to have your first long pants.

He's talking about Vasque immigrants and how they would engage in the most unusual and brutal bets, as in who would eat or drink the most of something. The episode happened between 1910 and 1920.

"I have seen one fall dead betting at who would drink more Suisse or Pernod, as they called absinthe."

"He visto a uno caerse muerto jugando a quien tomaba mas Susse o Pernod, como llamaban al ajenjo."

Pre-ban Prok™ will do it everytime.
Pants = fabric shackles
