Putnam, G. P., (ed.): Nonsenseorship. v1, 5 Jan 2008

Published in 1922, is a collection of essays, poems, and "sundry observations concerning Prohibitions, Inhibitions and Illegalities."
Prohibiton and censorship of literature and films are skewered with a dash of humor.

Quote:
I hope they're satisfied.
They can prove that the Johnstown flood,
And the blizzard of 1888,
And the destruction of Pompeii
Were all due to alcohol.
They have it figured out
That anyone who would give a gin daisy a friendly look
Is just wasting time out of jail.
