As proud citizens of this City of Brotherly Love, we would be remiss not to wish our own Mr. Benjamin Franklin a very happy 397th birthday. Sir, your dictionary of words for “drunk” — as well as some other accomplishments — lives on. We salute you with the above Drunk History of your tangle with that kite and the sky.
His Head is full of Bees,
Has been in the Bibbing Plot,
Has drank more than he has bled,
He sees the Bears,
He’s had a Thump over the Head with Sampson’s Jawbone,
