Link to "The Incredible Coming of Al Cohol," a cautionary tale about alcohol addiction produced by the Canadian government for Inuit (Eskimo) communities in the Northwest Territories. Stars a recovering drunk space alien superhero. Sure would like to be a fly on the wall in *his* 12-step group. (Thanks Ethan Persoff)
Reader comment: Andrew Gammell says,
Captain Al Cohol wasn't just a comic. There was also a radio drama starring the character. I've never actually heard any of the shows, but I have seen a few excerpts from the scripts. They were about as delightfully bad as you would expect them to be, given the subject matter.
