Meatless Mondays’ predecessor from WW I
Filed under Uncategorized
I don’t get it: how does not drinking on Mondays help?
One of the arguments for prohibition was that the large amounts of grain that went into the production of distilled spirits couldn’t be spared from food production due to the shortages caused by the droughts during the 1920’s. During the war, food production was rationed so the amount of grain available for distilling was reduced.
If I know my drunks, they’d drink twice as much on Sundays to tank up, and drink twice as much on Tuesdays to make up for the day before, so the net effect would be worse, not better.
Nah, they’d just keep drinking on Monday. When the spiders show up they don’t have much choice.
Yeah, but that’s a WWI poster (1914-1918). Probably just Nanny Statists spewing pablum such as “Remember to stay hydrated” or “A penny saved is a penny earned,” whatever the f*ck that means.
Unintended consequences – this caused double drink Sunday and Tuesday!
Kind of sad how many people would have difficulty abstaining for one day a week
I blame positivism, or scientism or scientific materialism, if you prefer.
