This is a permafree little book to read instead of the newspaper over your morning coffee. It is not meant to bring profit, but to—hopefully—put a smile on your face.<br /><br />History should not always be so serious. For it is but the record of the public and official acts of human beings. It is our object, therefore, to humanize our history and deal with people past and present; people who ate and possibly drank; people who were born, flourished, and died. And if we cannot laugh at ourselves, then we are condemned to repeat the very same deeds of the past.
