a land where the whiskey is always flowing.
Here people live in blissful peace under the tenure of Whiskey Pants,
their beloved Mayor.
Since "The Event",
they've found it's dangerous to dream,
leaving most to prefer to live their days in a drunken stupor.
their way of life is threatened by an ambitious newcomer
from the outside world
their perpetual hangover.
Will he ruin everything?
Or will he discover that
it's easier to drink?
