Someone told me today that Johnny Appleseed went planting apple trees all over so he could sell little apple trees to everyone settling out west, and because apples at the time weren't the big, sweet, hybrids that we have now, people grew those hard, sour, homely little apples for cider.

Which became hard cider quite quickly.

So our hero Johnny Appleseed, rather than spreading the patriotic joy of and solid nutrition of frugivory, was promoting blooteredness. For profit.

On second thought, that is pretty much the American Way...
