Used circuit board etchant (ammonium persulphate) neutralized by Ca(OH)2.
Does one have to be pregnant in order not to drink this?

Note that the label reads "made unfortunately in France", not to mention "cold-cocked and artificially colored". It's not often you see that sort of thing on a label!

Unintentional drug overdose, exposure to harmful chemicals, and other types of accidental poisoning claim thousands of lives every year. On the 50th anniversary of National Poison Prevention Week, I encourage all Americans to help protect their loved ones by identifying poisoning hazards at home; using, storing, and disposing of medication safely and effectively; and learning more about how to prevent and respond to poison

Though we have dramatically reduced the incidence of poisoning among children, accidental exposure to drugs and medicines, typical household chemicals, and other dangerous substances continues to threaten the health of our Nation's youth -- particularly those under the age of six. Parents and caregivers can help prevent poisoning by storing chemicals and medication in locked or childproof cabinets beyond their children's reach, and by safely disposing of unused or expired prescription drugs. To find more information and safety tips,

Tragically, the mortality rate from unintentional drug overdose climbs higher every year. Misuse and abuse of
prescription painkillers among teens and adults drives this trend. As we work to address this serious public health issue, we must do more to educate parents, young people, patients, and prescribers about the dangers of prescription drug abuse and the steps they can take to prevent it. Because the majority of individuals who abuse prescription pain relievers obtain them from friends or family, all of us can take action by using
medications only as directed by a health care provider and removing old or unneeded medications from our homes. Additional resources on safe drug disposal are available at and

In the event of an accidental poisoning, rapid response can make all the difference. The national poison help hotline is available to respond to poison emergencies and provide essential information 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1-800-222-1222.

To encourage Americans to learn more about the dangers of accidental poisonings and to take appropriate preventive measures, the Congress, by joint resolution approved September 26, 1961, as amended (75 Stat. 681), has authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation designating the third week of March each year as "National Poison Prevention Week."

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim March 18 through March 24, 2012, as National Poison Prevention Week. I call upon all Americans to observe this week by taking actions to protect their families from hazardous household materials and from misuse of prescription medications.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this
sixteenth day of March, in the year of our Lord
two thousand twelve, and of the Independence of the
United States of America the two hundred and thirty-sixth.

It must be a recreation of one of those supposed historic 'bad-absinthes' with copper sulphate, that nobody has ever found a bottle of.
That would be interesting, but no, that's not it.

never say "nobody"
Stanley Cupric?
Who's responsible for this shit anyway? I can't be bothered, but something seems familiar about the labels.
Phil the Frenchman.

He says it's an absinthe especially for idiots. I told him I would post it here - I expected the amusing shit storm his announcement engendered at the French forum (before he explained it), but you fuggers are so jaded ...

He says got tired of people who had come back from Spain (or their own private Idaho, whatever), saying they had found the REAL shit. So just for them he made some real SHIT. I would have released it on April 1st, but I admire his balls.

Oh this is hilarious! Phil can be really funny. Well done, PhiL!
Is it Boggy's recipe?

More up Kyle's alley?
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.
L'alcool du pauvre, imitateur du riche, qui enrichi le riche au détriment du dernier de ses biens : sa santé.

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.

"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:

Le doctuer Ordinaire fait partie du mythe de l absinthe, certains doutent même de son existence, mais personne n a jamais pensé à verifier s'il était réellement né... les registres du Doubs et de Suisse en témoigne bien.

Si au cours de mes recherches, je venais à trouver un manuscrit décrivant une recette médicamenteuse à base de plantes IPB Image , signée de la main d'un certain docteur

Dr. Ordinaire is part of the myth of absinthe, some people even doubt his existence, but nobody thought to verify that he was really born - the registers of Doubs and Switzerland testify to it definitely.

If in the course of my research, I came to find a manuscript representing a medicinal recipe based upon plants, signed by the hand of a certain doctor ....
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….
