commander schweppes -2

The Commander was asked after a 1968 lecture at Harvard Business School:
“Does Schweppes Tonic Water really contain quinine, and could you drink it as a cure for malaria?”
Commander Whitehead answered without pause, “Indeed, Schweppes Tonic Water does contain quinine and one could drink it as a palliative for malaria. However, should one adopt such a course of treatment one would surely expire from renal collapse, for the daily dosage, I regret, would be approximately 30 cases.”
