Tango Whiskey Toothpaste

Sometimes the best inventions just don't, for mysterious reasons, find a foothold.  62 years ago today, the good people at Life magazine documented one such forgotten landmark: the creation of something that could have revolutionized grooming as we know it - whiskey toothpaste. 

If the cartons are to believed (and what could be more reliable than background props in what is likely, after all, a joke setup?), the product came in scotch, rye, or bourbon.  I'm mostly a vodka man, myself, if forced to abandon my beloved Champers, but I suppose I could have settled.
