"Mencken was also a staunch wet, meaning he was against Prohibition from start to finish. He coined a term ombibulous to describe his prejudice in favor of alcohol and against the affront to liberty that Probibition imposed on the Republic. 'I'm ombibulous. I drink every known alcoholic drink and enjoy them all.'" - Gibbons Burke, 'Henry Louis Mencken (1880 - 1956)'.
