Baltimore Afro-American, February 2, 1908. Daffy as this sounds, mince pie was subject to regional prohibition at certain times in American and British history. More on that later. But who knew that mince pie was a breakfast food? Cold water was a “Georgian” beverage in the sense that the state of Georgia had just enacted statewide Prohibition. The laws stayed on the books until 1935, two years longer than national Prohibition. And that’s why citizens of Georgia are even today the soberest in the Union. Bwa ha ha ha ha ha!
