A book called Absinthe and Flamethrowers: A Guide to Living Dangerously, as well as a women's shirt with painful "alternate spelling". Their absinthe science description was amusing though.

"ABSINTH MAKES THE HEART GROW FONDER"

ZOMG!! That's a HOOT. I've never heard that before! I wish I'd thought that up!! So clever.

Indeed.

At least they could've ripped of my "Absinthe makes the fart grow Hondas". :rolleyes:

Yes, I'm Krinkles the Clown on an absinthe a beer bender.

You got a problem with that?

Absinthe diminishes little passions and increases great ones, as wind extinguishes candles and fans a fire.

This thread led me to search for "Absinthe Shirts" on eBay and among the mix of decent and crappy shirts I stumbled upon a shirt that says : "Absinthe Makes the Cock Grow Faster" and right under the plain looking text, well I'll be damned if there isn't a picture of a tally wacker in all of its curved glory. As proud as can be. Kinda like it is saying, "Good morning world... today is going to be a good day."

Now, I feel like I am as far away from a prude as one can be, but it seems like walking around in public with a penis on your shirt is just a tad bit bold.

If you really want to see this thing here is the link:

I used to think that was the original quote until I read "The book of Absinthe" by Phil Baker. You'd be surprised to learn most people think it is indeed the original quote, instead of using the word "tart". It gets constant mentions in Yahoo Answers.

Regardless of how bad that sucks, for at least the last 7-8 years, they have had some real praise-worthy
stuff.

A book called Absinthe and Flamethrowers: A Guide to Living Dangerously

My book review. The absinthe section is only a few pages, but it is well-researched and factually correct.

Unsuprisingly enough, the original version has been a personal favorite for about 18 years now. :heart:
