Came across the following headline this morning:
My first thought was, “We have a national still?”, and I got all excited. Then I remembered that we’re talking about the federal government here, which couldn’t make a profit running a whorehouse in Nevada. Hooch produced by the National Still would have a 2% alcohol content, and come in three flavors, carefully determined by a Congressional committee. It would also cost $45 for a fifth, and you’d be limited to one bottle a month.
