The Day that "Dry" Died.


Needless to say, this was the threat that caused Prohibition to fail. These ladies just weren't tempting enough to entice the male population to give up their booze in return for sexual favors; "Speakeasies" thrived, and eventually the whole temperance movement fell by the wayside.

This has been my feeble attempt to impart a history lesson to the blogosphere.*

lmao, that is great. No wonder why prohibition failed. That probably drove them to drink MORE. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

My Nana says that all the time! She's 102, so old enough to have been a part of that whole movement. A few years ago I talked her into her first taste of alcohol, a sip of Baileys Irish Cream. She drank two sips, took off her clothes and did a table dance, then packed her bags and left town to live out her life's dream of becoming a burlesque dancer.

Just kidding. She did smack her lips though, and say, "That's not half bad!"
