now we know why he drinks so much...

Poor ole Willie - no wonder he drinks so much - his job terrifies him! Look at him shiver with fear in this ad from April 15, 1941. And usually the ad begins "Says Willie..." this time it begins "Wails Willie..."



There's really no obscure lingo here. Just raw fear. Not even a reference to alcohol, which is unprecedented...

...hmm, maybe that isn't fear, maybe it's delirium tremens.
