Does anyone remember the laxative Feen-A-Mint, which was manufactured by Schering-Plough and recently discontinued?  The pills were shaped like mint candies, except that when you ingested them, you immediately had to go to the bathroom.  Other similar laxatives include the chocolate Ex-Lax and the pink-candy shaped Correctol tablets.  In general, all laxative commercials are so disgusting that they belong in a category all to their own.  But Feen-A-Mint's ads, in particular, were so revolting when they aired on TV and radio in the late 1970s and early 1980s.  Dead

My grandfather used to share a story about a joke that was common back in the day.
He worked with a guy at the mill that always took two sticks of gum. So someone slipped feenamint in to the wrigleys pack and the guy had to go a few times a that day.

Looking back, it smacks of urban legend, but I like to think my grandpa was yucking it up with his pals at the mill over the grown man potty dance they were witnessing
