Bonus Trivia

Why are sellers of illegal whiskey called bootleggers? 

Back in the days of the Old West it was illegal to sell alcohol to Native Americans. Disreputable vendors/peddlers would sometimes smuggle the alcohol onto Indian reservations by hiding flasks in the leg of their boots. These smugglers became known as “bootleggers,” a term which now means anyone who smuggles illegal alcohol.
