A sip of bourbon begins to clear the mind.

Two sips of bourbon bring clarity.

Three sips bring complete clarity with a touch of humor.

Fore sips improves self-esteem.

Fib sips bring opinions that need telling.

Sex sips and you are ready for anything.

Bourbon, the gift that always allows you to give freely (too freely?) of yourself.
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light. - Dylan Thomas

From the "Sugar Planter", February 11, 1860 (a newspaper in West Baton Rouge).

"A NEW BEVERAGE. - Simon, whose 'shingle' is a Rainbow on high to the thirsty, has been presented with a recipe by a distinguished politician of the State for the making of a beverage which surpasses all other concoctions yet invented. Call and try one, be sure and ask for one of the new drinks, the Otherwise Cocktails! - if it don't cock your tail, or otherwise, we are greatly mistaken.

BRANDY AND WATER by Degrees. - Brandy and water. Branwater. Bramwater. Bramwarra. Bramwar. Bremwar. Bamwr-wrr-wr. Berr-eughph! - Sugar Planter.

We've seen our contemporary in all the degrees - not excepting the last. His description is vivid. - Advocate.

It affords us much pleasure to meet the approbation of our worthy tutor, whose lessons it has ever been our pride to commit faithfully to memory, and to practice".

Looks like the southerners don't change much.
