Do not let your infant drink too much 7-Up

Babysevenup If you’ve been keeping an eye out for an old print plate of a 7-Up ad showing a baby swigging down the fizzy drink, it’s your lucky day. Someone’s auctioning one off on eBay. “So pure … So good … So wholesome for everyone … including the tiniest tots!” reads the copy (of which only one claim is even remotely defensible). This might make a good addition to the old Coca-Cola mirror I have in my kitchen, which reads, “Coca-Cola. Relieves fatigue.” Via Boing Boing.
