Direct to you from the 1920s

 "So now I have the vote.  Big deal.  The vote and a nickle will get me a cup of coffee.

"Bathtub gin?  Who do you think I am, Helen 'Glug Glug' Morgan??" *

*Helen Morgan was a beautiful torch singer from the 1920s and early '30, who pioneered the practice of singing while draped provocatively on a piano.  She was a little too fond of booze, and her pickled liver gave out in 1941.
