Subject: RE: Anti-alcohol, temperance songs
On the old U.S. TV "Dean Martin Show," Dean's guest one evening was singer Pat Boone. Boone had a reputation as a clean-living, teetotaling sort who drank only milk. Dean's other guest was the late Phil Harris (for younger folks, the voice of Baloo in Disney's "The Jungle Book"). Phil, who had long had a reputation as a lover of booze, looked askance at Pat Boone, cocked one eye and asked, "Is it true that you really drink milk?" Given an affirmative response, he then asked, "You mean to tell me you get up in the morning KNOWING that's the best you're gonna feel all day?" I rest my case.
