And then there was wodka

It goes without saying that the great pianist would be wery proud.

So there’s a story about what happened in Warsaw when Warsawians figured out that you could make vodka from potatoes.

No one swam the width of the Vistula. Blue sky didn’t suddenly break through…There were no riots.

What happened was much more incredible.

On the east side of the river, the cult of the Virgin Mary collapsed to the ground in an orgiastic frenzy; while on the west side, the accordion was invented.

Strikes and gutters, I guess.

Ω Many thanks to my great friend Baron Styles for telling me this one.
