shaken & stirred

welcome to my martini glass


blahblahblah post 6(?) (Updated)

Just a few more quotes (courtesy of Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do: The Absurdity of Consensual Crimes in a Free Society by Peter McWilliams):
  • "Robert Benchley's list of infallible syptoms of intoxication in drivers:
    1. When the driver is sitting with his back against the instrument panel and his feet on the driver's seat.
    2. When the people in the back seat are crouched down on the floor with their arms over their heads.
    3. When the driver goes into the rest-room and doesn't come out."
  • "There should be asylums for habitual teetotalers, but they would probably relapse into teetotalism as soon as they got out." -- Samuel Butler
  • "Prohibition only drives drunkenness behind doors and into dark places and does not cure or even diminish it." -- Mark Twain
  • "Although man is already ninety percent water, the Prohibitionists are not yet satisfied." -- John Kendrick Bangs
  • "If I go to church on Sunday and cabaret all day Monday, well, it ain't nobody's business if I do." -- from the song by Porter R. Grainger & Everett Robbins
UPDATE: Check out the truly productive Chance Morrison... and, of course, Ed. I may be flatlining now.
