The Green Fairy

One has but to wonder how the French came to invent the famous leader technique: since no reliable history is known perhaps I might be allowed to fantasy that it is came as a thujone induced hallucination out of a dark recess of a twisted mind...

To keep with my Absinthe inspired idea I decided to call this little creation the Green Fairy.
