Attitude & Stupidity Control - Maybe These will Really Work!?

Sadly, the little company that made these has suffered with the times and has had to close it's doors. We were truly disheartened by the news. So, once these are gone, they're gone!

We used to go to the shore every summer - to Stone Harbor, New Jersey. Our vacation was at the same time each year and each year we stayed in the same motel - right on the sand, right by the water. Our normal routine would include going to the all-year Christmas store, a night-time visit to the boardwalk in Wildwood and our favorite - a trip to a wonderful candy store in Cape May.

Every year, my Dad would buy these pills (jelly beans) for his friends. He was the Postmaster here in Donora as well as the Assistant Fire Chief of the Volunteer Fire Department. Every year he would giggle when he bought different formulas and every year as I grew older, I'd tell him, "Daddy, it's not funny every year." And every year, he'd reply, "Sure, it is!"

Each bottle looks like a prescription bottle and the label reads like one. Here's a look at the Attitude Control Pills Label:
The Opti-Mystic Pharmacy
Control Pills
Jelly Beans
Physician: Dr. Pahz A. Tivvly
Prescription: # Y-Knot
INSTRUCTIONS: Take one or more each morning, as needed, to promote a positive, exciting, happy, uplifting and successfully optimistic attitude.
WARNING: If you think you can, or if you think you can't ... you're right !!

When I discovered that they were still made, what else could I do - we had to sell these. And, trust me, these are funny - and they will be - every year! Honest!

Better yet, they are made by a wonderful company in Wyoming. They employ 30 developmentally disabled individuals, whose conscientious attitudes and attention to detail are amazing!

The Attitude Control Pills are sold out. You can still order the Stupidity Control Pills are still available.
