December 7: National Stock Up on Booze Day

It’s National Stock Up On Booze Day. If you haven’t heard of that before, it’s because we just started it. So what’s the story? Let me lay it on you. Hours after the Japanese struck Pearl Harbor on this day back in 1941, prescient drunkard W.C. Fields wheeled a hand truck to a liquor store two blocks from his home and loaded it up with six cases of gin. On his way home, he ran into a friend who was curious as to know why W.C. needed 72 bottles of liquor. Fields sagely answered, “I think it’s going to be a short war.”
