Truck reads: CASTOR OIL WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTOR
This was from the good old days when food was so bad for you it was better if it left quickly.
There is nothing like having a laugh at someone else’s expense.
I wonder how many years it’ll be before this strip is incomprehensible to the average reader? I think castor oil is mostly associated with inducing labor these days.
I wouldn’t laugh too hard, Nancy…they’ll probably find somewhere else to get the castor oil from…
Ew! Cod liver oil….my mom gave that to me when I was young. AWFUL
Castor oil was primarily used as a laxative. There must have been a lot of constipated kids when this strip was drawn.
I guess at one time it must have been a very important medicine for kids. Don’t think it is used anymore.
it was yesteryear answer for all your ills. from whooping cough to stomach aches.
Darn it, now my casters are squeaking.
