The ‘Time Magazine’ which published at March 13th, 1939, “The Saber-Tooth Curriculum, a satire on educators, consists of a series of lectures on the history of Paleolithic education, delivered by fictitious Professor J. Abner Peddiwell while he drinks tequila daisies at a Tijuana bar” “He drinks–maybe beer, in which case his personality becomes a trifle better integrated; maybe wine, which helps his personality somewhat more; maybe hard liquor like whiskey or rum, whereupon he may become markedly integrated; or maybe, if he is fortunate, tequila in the form of the tequila daisy, which expands his personality in a uniquely effective manner.” –The Saber-Tooth Curriculum, Abner Peddiwell, 1939.
