So We All Should Thank Noah

" 'Twas Noah who first planted the vine and mended his morals by drinking its wine." -Benjamin Franklin

I rarely think of Benjamin Franklin as much of a poet, honestly, I rarely think of Benjamin Franklin. But when I do, I think of him more as an inventor and a farmer, so it was nice to run across this quote and comprehend his appreciation for the fruit of the vine. Not only that, this comment seems to insinuate that Noah's morals had been compromised at some point, but (thankfully for Noah, and thankfully for us), he planted the vine, tasted the wine, and was completely able to amend his morals. Amen brother, now pass the wine.
