Overview

In this pun-filled fantasy, written at the outset of Prohibition, the Pan-Antis, who are against everything, have so far extended the Volstead Act as to ban all fruit and vegetables capable of fermenting, and have anyone suspected of even thinking about having a drink hauled off to an inebriates' asylum.

Hilariously absurd, but with oddly apt parallels to present-day political affairs.
