Westphal’s Auxiliator

Here's an old-timey hair tonic with a weird name. The strange noun just means "helper."

Composed of "55% grain alcohol," it went down many an alcoholic's gullet, I'm sure.

Believe it or not, the tonic was mentioned in a SIMPSONS comicbook. If you look at their ad below, you'll see why. The mutant female user resembles the famed Springfield three-eyed fish.

Paul, I think I've been using too much of this hair tonic! I count upwards to 7 eyes there not the 3 your elude to.

Ah... this stuff is to be taken internally, right? http://www.picgifs.com/smileys/smileys-and-emoticons/food-and-drinks/smileys-food-and-drinks-018931.gif

I look at that face(s) and think of the song "The Eyes Of Texas Are Upon You"?

That is just what you see after you drink it.
