Schindler Sez
A girl always seems prettier, when her daddy’s rich.

Ho! Ho! Ho!
Would Santa be as jolly if he was skinny?

The Beer Salesman
Throughout the first half of the 1900s, beer salesmen would make their rounds of the taverns in their area, trying to convince the local sots, excuse me, I mean clients, to drink their particular brand of beer. Usually, the salesmen would buy all the patrons in the bars that they visited, a round of the beer they were pushing, hoping they might like it and start to drink that brand.
It didn’t take long for the thirsty tavern patrons to figure out the salesman’s modus operandi. For example, when the salesman would leave Decatur’s Green Kettle, one of the customers would run out the back door and spread the word to his buddies, who were also exceedingly fond of anything brewed, that he was in town.
Then it was just a matter of following him from bar to bar, enjoying the complimentary nectar of the gods. After all, the local imbibers theorized, it wouldn’t be polite to refuse such a gracious offer. Needless to say, the day the beer salesman came to Decatur was an auspicious occasion and at least on that day, he was definitely the most popular guy in town. Bottoms up! HicSchindler Sez
