Uncle Sam was suffering from another hangover.
The family wanted to care for their dear Uncle.
Our Cousin Dubya was certain that the proper action was to
open another liquor store in the neighborhood. This would
allow Sam to get a hair of the dog whenever he was feeling
woozy. The members of the family were in awe of Dubya's intelligent
response when he was up to deciding!
We know that hiding the bottle will only make him get another to
stash away in some corner.
We know that the craving could make him look in the medicine
cabinet for a harsher variant of his addiction.
Lying in the corner was the family dog. He could not speak for
want of a voicebox. He thought that perhaps getting Uncle Sam
a healthier routine and peace of mind like that of sitting in the sun,
or watching the wind rustle the leaves would be the better
way for the sake of Sam.
