”The Frenchman loves his native wine;
The German loves his beer;
The Englishman loves his ‘alf and ‘alf,
Because it brings good cheer.
The Irishman loves his “whiskey straight”;,
Because it gives him dizziness.
The American has no choice at all,
So he drinks the whole —— business.”
(Ur ”Toasts for all occasions”, Boston 1903)
