«RUM, n. Generically, fiery liquors that produce madness in total abstainers.»
Author: Ambrose Bierce
«And abstainer is a weak person who yields to the temptation of denying himself a pleasure.»
«A total abstainer is one who abstains from everything but abstention, and especially from inactivity in the affairs of others.»
«TOPE, v. To tipple, booze, swill, soak, guzzle, lush, bib, or swig. In the individual, toping is regarded with disesteem, but toping nations are in the forefront of civilization and power.

Wherefore the estimable old ladies who abolished the canteen from the American army may justly boast of having materially augmented the nation's military power.»
