    Thus proving that everything in Canada is similar to the U.S. Except much less funny. And dumber.

    Same here...
    And Cadet, I feel for ya.. Did that same thing in Minnesota -- except there was lots of beer within walking distance, which helped immensely

    Which is the great thing about BFE in the Upper Midwest. There is always at least two bars.

    Around here we've always called it "Buttfuck, Idaho." Sorry Modaho. :)

    My hometown didn't go wet until 1972 or 1973. In its heyday it used to be a rip-roaring place nicknamed "Corkscrew City" until prohibition. Its reputation then made it a target of the temperance folks who kept at it so long that the nickname eventually changed to "Dry Gulch."

    Every election, the question was on the ballot -- wet or dry? The temperance forces were probably vastly outnumbered but they always staged a big campaign and got every vote they possibly could while the drinkers didn't really care one way or the other -- there was a bootlegger on every corner and they could always get whatever they wanted. On top of that, there were several other "wet" towns just outside the city limits and drinking and driving wasn't the big sin that it is now.

    If by "Muslim" you mean hardshell Southern Baptist, then yes. There was one fairly small Catholic church, but the rest was all Protestant. The county was 90% white, but the town had a little bit more diversity. My favorite thing ever is that the weekly paper there had a full page ad for a local pharmacy, and they were showing all the guns you could buy at the pharmacy. And there were photos of this cute high school girl who worked as a cashier there, holding a shotgun. That's something you don't see in Berkley or Cambridge, Mass.

    The reason they stay dry is mostly business, partly a nod to their religious roots. Since the liquor store has sat just the other side of the county line for so many years (since OUR county doesn't endorse that one-way road to H-E-double toothpicks), old man Franklin has made himself quite a nice living. And if we allowed the demon's drink to be sold in our county, well, not only would our way a'life go down the tubes but Franklin would have competition and those nasty, beer-stained dollars would be spread too thin.

    That's the explanation I was given for why Lubbock, Texas, confines its liquor stores to a strip just outside the city limits, and why Lubbock County's commissioners wouldn't let one of its outlying communities go wet. I grant that the "county" reference in the above anecdote doesn't allow for cities like Lubbock but you get the point. Never mind that Lubbock has enough bars to keep Otis drunk 24/7.

    I loves me any woman who knows how to take care of herself. :)
