That it was. In fact, that bottle inspired a quick poem - the 3rd in the
masterpiece "The Wasted Land":
"Phlebas the Phoenician, a fortnight drunk,
Forgot the bucket of ice, and the chaser beer
And the glass of water.
A current of booze
Picked his bones in whispers. As he drank in cheer
He passed the stages of his age and youth
Entering the whirlpool.
Gentile or Jew
O you who turn the bottle cap and look to drunkard,
Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and sober as you."
Seeing as I won't be showing up tonight, I must ask who is showing up next
Thurs. You showing up next Thursday, wps?
