Go get some VD

Would you drink something named "VD"...?

( Ad taken from Swedish Kamratposten #15 1963. I bet they had trouble if they tried to export it to the UK or US.
Now hear this, youngsters: If you try this, be protected and don't swallow! )

Man, that's a chirpy ad... @_@

On a sidenote, I once saw a Japanese sports drink named TBC.

In Swedish, it's kinda funny, but in English apparently tuberculosis is abbreviated TB, so slightly less so... =S

By the way, VD in Swedish is short for "Verkställande direktör", "Management Director".

Still a rather strange word choice...
