SETTING: A 1950’s drug store
YOUNG MAN: Is it possible to disguise the taste of castor oil?
DRUGGIST: Certainly young man.
YOUNG MAN: It’s such horrible stuff to take. Yuck!!!
DRUGGIST: It certainly is.
PATRON: (Enters Drug Store)
Chocolate soda please.
DRUGGIST: Would you like one, too, young man?
YOUNG MAN: Oh yes. I’d like one very much.
(Druggist makes up 2 sodas and gives them to the Patron and the Young Man.)
YOUNG MAN: (finishing his soda)
My that was good! Now tell me about disguising castor oil, sir.
DRUGGIST: Aha my dear young man. I gave you some castor oil in that soda and you didn’t even
YOUNG MAN: But good heavens sir, I wanted it for my brother!!!
