Kops Bairn’s Wine, 1924

You can’t give a baby booze, to quote Vic and Bob.

Oh, you can with this one, it’s “temperance”, non-alcoholic “Kops Wine”. Kids wine.

Plus, a slagging off in 1891 for temperance “Kops Ale”, below. They are making a joke on the old phrase “a good wine needs no bush” which means, I think, that a good product doesn’t need to be advertised or promoted. “Kops” was so rubbish it didn’t only need a bush, it needed a whole copse (do you see what they did there?)

It doesn’t sound like it was much “kop”! Haha! Well, that’s a better joke than the one below anyway.
