The Petty Officer Calls For A Celebration

As I mentioned last year , today is Repeal Day!  December 5th, 2008 is the 75th anniversary of the passing of the Twenty-First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution , which fully repealed the  Eighteenth amendment.  That means that 75 years ago today, Americans could legally drink alcohol for the first time in 15 years!  Americans of course did the only sensible thing to mark the occasion; they took to the streets in huge crowds and proceeded to get smashed in public.1 It’s the one thing everyone can agree on!

Last year I had planned on throwing a party to celebrate the occasion, but unforeseen circumstances have prevented me from hosting said party.   However, I will still be celebrating the occasion.  Furthermore, I strongly suggest that you celebrate your Constitutional right to consume alcohol at your nearest/favorite drinking establishment.  Please join me in raising a glass to celebrate raising a glass.

Cheers,

The Petty Officer

1  Even though alcohol had been outlawed for almost fifteen years, somehow there was magically enough booze to go around the day prohibition was lifted.  Curious…
