Having just read Treasure Island, I'm thinking that it would be fun to go to Long John Silver's and ask for rum, and see if anyone gets the joke.
Along those lines, it's interesting to see how prominently liquor, especially rum, is featured in the "diets" (as it were) of the characters, Stevenson even doing a fair job portraying the onset of delirium tremens in the character of Billy Bones. Suffice it to say that my liver is happy not to be on board with Captain Flint and Mr. Silver.
