Remember the 1920s? A time when men were fellas and women were dames with gams like skyscrapers? A time when booze was bootleg and your uncle's warehouse was a secret speakeasy? Yep, them was some darb times ...

What did the 1920's give us? Why:

PROHIBITION

Actually, that wasn't so much fun. We hadda put up with 13 years of that applesauce.

But the SPEAKEASIES were fun.

Flappers, fine tomatoes I tel ya, danced the night away. If you were lucky you'd get to see a knee or two.

Such great gams

Lets not forget

TheGreatGatsby.jpg

Darb, no? A true gem of a book.

Oh, and then there's first real scifi movie, born about 1927

But the 1920's greatest contribution?

PROBLEM SLEUTH

    Never use the phrase "need to get payment" when you're talkin' to your lender
