    He also created a universal solvent, but he can’t figure out what to keep it in.

    A totally inert liquid would be ideal as a means of storing more active materials. That would mean it did something apart from exist.

    Of course, absolutely nothing, would mean it did not exist and ‘discovering’ it would be a delusion.

    He calls it Beetle Juice (after Beetle Bailey).

    True. By definition, it cannot do “absolutely nothing”. At the very least, it is busy displacing the air in the container.

    I think Horace is going for the Jerry Lewis Nutty Professor look.

    Ages ago, when DuPont used to sponsor shows featuring Jacques Cousteau and George Plimpton (not at the same time, of course), there was a spot they used to run where a chemist had concocted a liquid that didn’t do anything to anything. He thought it was a failure when he rethought the notion that it didn’t do anything to anything; whereupon they showed him plunging a hamster (or similar) into the beaker and it was apparently able to breathe without drowning. The ad went on to mention the prospect of using the liquid to help burn victims recover faster. That was almost 50 years ago; I haven’t heard anything since.
