MERRYMAKING? – an alcoholic carousel – truly not amusing

Alcohol illuminates a large galaxy of word-notions

Alcoholic spirits are complex and perhaps amusing – see this carousel

Alcohol stinks like a halitus from hell – Spaniards also speak of Asco and Ascitis

Filter, philtrum can alert an alert clinician about FASD

Many Fine Arts paintings speak of how alcohol inhibits inhibitions – take a look at Pandora Word Box

COMMENT: Alcohol is an optional “social” teratogen (100% avoidable) and also a toxin. Alcohol is arguably the most common teratogen and a cause of preventable functional and structural developmental anomalies.
