Maybe it's an example of "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade".

Celebrity Cruises is running a new television commercial (see video below). In it, a woman with bright red hair wanders about a phantasmagoric cruise ship to the sounds of The Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick singing their sixties hit, "White Rabbit".
One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall...
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head

Outbreaks of travel-related Legionnaires' disease present a public-health challenge since rapid, sensitive, and specific diagnostic tests are not widely used and because detection of clusters of disease among travellers is difficult.
