    Yes. Do you like how it’s hidden in plain view?
    I can’t explain why a tampon appears impaled on the swizzle stick, beyond stating that the operation was conducted at 11pm on Dollar Pot Tuesday.
    Guess we were all out of olives, glace cherries and little paper umbrellas that night.
    Necessity, mother of invention, etc.

    Even now, most people reading this are going “Huh?? You don’t put tampons in a cocktail. What a tweaker that Mr Semi is. Why is Teigan encouraging his strange delusion, etc”
    Heh.

    I’d like to think that that Rimbaud, Verlain and other Parisian Bohemian luminaries – when after spending all their money on prostitutes and gambling, would have sought their base nutritional requirements in Vegemite – probably licked off the back of a playing card.
    Even Van Gough would have immortalised a jar of vegemite along side his sunlowers if he had a chance – with his empty vegemite jars housing both absinthe or turpentine. I’m sure he would also have not been too fussy about which one he drank from and which one he washed his brushes in either….

    Indeed. Vegemite is delicious and nutritious and comes in handy reusable jars. It’s the national institution it’s kind of okay to not be against.
    >probably licked off the back of a playing card.
    Or a prostitute. Naturally.
