    They’re a lot easier to carry around in ones pockets than change… Unless they are hungry.

    I wonder how many pennies it would take to equal the shrew I married?

    So, alcohol is still banned in most middle eastern (what used to be called Persia… ;-) countries…

    Sadly, Wayne (AKA Mickey Mouse) was killed yesterday when his head was crushed while attempting to eat a piece of cheese in a mouse trap. He leaves behind his nephews Morty and Ferd. A closed casket funeral service will be held behind the baseboards

    In a 1908 referendum, Icelanders voted in favor of a ban on all alcoholic drinks, going into effect Jan. 1, 1915. In 1921, the ban was partially lifted after Spain refused to buy Iceland’s main export, fish, unless Iceland bought Spanish wines; then lifted further after a national referendum in 1935 came out in favor of legalizing spirits. Strong beer (with an alcohol content of more than 2.25%), however, was not included in the 1935 vote in order to please the temperance lobby—which argued that because beer is cheaper than spirits, it would lead to more depravity.

    Yet beer consumption in Iceland remained consistent for the duration.

    Muslim law prohibits alcoholic beverages but allows marijuana. ☺

    A ban on all alcohol could not go over well for long in a cold country.
