666



I don't normally buy older advertising stuff... I try to stick to only kids stuff from the 60s-70s... But today, as I was scrounging through some antique store in some small town in the middle of Wisconsin, I came across this goofy fan:

It's for an 'amazing' product that comes in liquid, tablet, salve or nose drop form and cures everything from colds, headaches, fever, biliousness, malaria & constipation! But WHAT were they thinking by calling it 666? There is NO indication that it has anything to do with Satan or anything of that nature. In fact, it even has a glowing recommendation by an archbishop!!! I'm no bible expert or anything... but I'm pretty sure '666' was a well known number for 'the devil' even way before it was so popularized in the many heavy metal songs of years later. But I may be wrong.
