The National Archives Display the Original Unused Draft of The Declaration of Independence

 Ben, John, Sam and Tom walk into a Tavern….....

NOTE: In 1770, the average per capita intake of distilled spirits (whiskey, rum, gin and brandy) was 40 gallons; by 1820, the per capita intake exceeded 50 .

After some thought, the framers of the original 
document put down the Ale mugs and all
agreed to a rewrite, and to be a little more diplomatically
thorough in telling King George to kiss their asses. 

Along with the U.S. Constitution, the rewritten Declaration 
has pretty much been ignored in modern times.
