In February of 1953, Elmer Brasher received a drunken driving citation in Socorro, New Mexico. Ultimately, this resulted in Socorro's secession from the United States. Get the full story at:

Here are two patriotic (propaganda) labels from Germany of the World War I era. The first one (26mm x 34.5mm) depicts Mehmed V, the penultimate Ottoman sultan. Mehmed V declared jihad on the allies on the 14th of November, 1914. The second label (44mm x 61mm) simply states "the holy war!" and shows frightened soldiers from Scotland, France, and Russia.

Interesting. A key hope of the Germans was that the "holy war" would create difficulties for Britain amongst India's Muslim population, which did not prove to be the case. Indeed, part of the Ottoman Empire's own Muslim population, in the Hijaz, formed the basis of the Arab Revolt against Ottoman rule.
