“It was my Uncle George who discovered that alcohol was a food well in advance of modern medical thought.” P.G. Wodehouse

Spring — snow flurries in New York, and drizzle in L. A. — if I were a drinking woman, I would, to paraphrase Wodehouse, get my shimmer on.

Right now it seems the world is suffering from the aftereffects of being bamboozled.

Do you know what a Prairie Oyster is? They drink it in the movies to cure a hangover, or, to brace you for what lies ahead. Does it work? I seriously doubt it. Here’s the recipe:

Put one egg yolk (from a small egg) in a shot glass, sprinkle with salt and pepper, a dash of Worcestershire sauce, a few drops of lemon, and pour in a bit of tomato juice.

Now, take it down like you would a shot of vodka, whole yolk and all. My dears, that’s the least we’ve been asked to swallow since the chicanery of 2016.
