    My Uncle who was a C of E Minister with a country parish in SW Vic told of a story that he picked up a hitchhiker/Swaggie one day during his travels around the Parish.


    He noticed a smell from the bloke but couldn't place it.

    Not long after he had reason to help one of the CWA ladies with a Tea. As you do.

    Suddenly he realised that the pong he had experienced was Vanilla Extract being drunk to get themselves ****ed.

    No no no, not the CWA lady, the swaggie, although who can say what was drunk at CWA meetings?


    Seems it was the custom at the time to sup Vanilla extract because they couldn't get the real McCoy.



    You can get drunk on vanilla extract. ... For example, an extract at 40% is 80 proof, the same amount of alcohol there is many distilled spirits. Extracts may look harmless but they aren't. I rarely became ill, but after your second 1 ounce bottle of vanilla extract it becomes difficult to proceed.

    The boot polish should have produced a dark complexion after he shaved. Current Affairs Section Where Discussion About Contentious Topics Takes Place

    Reminds me of the time I was on a geophysical field party and the crew chief woke up, somewhat belatedly, that the amount of vanilla essence on the supply orders vastly exceeded any possible cooking uses by the cook, who always seemed to have a pleasant smell!
