From the Archives!—SpecGram Water Purification Tablets

The SpecGram Archive Elves™

As previously reported, our very own Butch McBastard recently unearthed1 a satchel of papers labeled, “Top Secret SpecGram Time Capsule, 1964Do Not Open for 50 Years!”.

Of course, there was little chance we’d wait over a year to open it. The SpecGram legal team is reviewing each item from the satchel for incriminating evidence proprietary information. However, as items are cleared, we thought it would be fun to share some of them with our readers. There often isn’t a lot of specific context for any given item, but they are interesting nonetheless.

Here is the second one, a label that fell off a small bottle of white pills2:

83½ Water Purification Tablets For Disinfecting Drinking Water ¶ Speculative Grammarian Brand™ ¶ Halazone ¶ C7H5Cl2No4S ¶ Manufactured By Specgram Chemlab, Inc. Ultima Thule

More to come...



1 Technically, it was unceilinged; see our original report in last month’s issue.

2 Several interns have dared one another to take one or more of the pills, a practice which Speculative Grammarian cannot condone, at least not without a review by the Human Subjects Committee.
