Toward the end of Prohibition,

To make a legal beer and sell it too.
Though, no stronger than 4.0
T’was better than nothing don’t you know.

From the National Beer Day webpage: On April 7, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt took the first step toward ending Prohibition and signed a law that allowed people to brew and sell beer, in the United States, as long as it remained below 4.0% alcohol by volume (ABV). Beer drinkers celebrated and were happy to be able to purchase beer again for the first time in thirteen years.

3. Butt Cleavage: You’re ambitious.

At least I know you wear underwear – 1 point
Hint of cleavage – 0 points
Hairless butt cleavage- minus 1 point
Hairy butt with clean cleavage – minus 2 points
Hairy butt with embedded dirt (I hope that’s all it is) – minus 10 points.
Butt crack disgusts.
Jokes cracked can entertain.
