Pondering the Imponderables

Do Junior Mints imply a Senior Mints?
Not according to the history on the manufacturer's website. The candy was named for a Broadway show, Junior Miss. (The link is to the movie. Consult your local high school drama club for the stage script.)

So was there an Absorbine Sr.?
Closer. The original Absorbine was a horse liniment. Farmers started using it themselves, similar to the Bag Balm marketing accident.

OK, how about a sanitary tablecloth?
Don't push it.
