08/22/17 Grif.Net – Vicks Vapor-rub

Mr. Peterson owns a furniture =
store specializing in ornate antiques in the baroque style. He had =
walking pneumonia last month but was at the store anyway. He was in one =
of the baroque style chairs rubbing Vicks Vapor-rub on his aching chest =
and neck when his hands rested on the wooden arm and he serendipitously =
discovered that the soothing ointment gave the furniture a wonderful, =
deep, rich shine.

 

He immediately told the other =
furniture store owners this trick, since their furniture was more modern =
in style and they were not competitors.

 

Soon he got reports that the =
Vicks treatment not only failed to work on the modern furniture, but =
ruined some of it. Mr. Peterson is very unpopular now, and his only =
consolation is that he learned one important =
rule:

 

If it ain’t baroque, don’t =
Vicks it.
