Prohibition ended on Dec. 5, 1933 with the ratification of the 21st amendment, leaving the decision of whether or not to sell alcohol up to each of the 50 United States.

But what if prohibition had not ended? What if it was still illegal to drink alcohol? We would be without images that combine two of everyone’s favorite things: hot women and alcohol.

So let’s all celebrate the 79th anniversary of the end of prohibition with these ladies with liquor, shall we?

  • If prohibition had not ended, the Hooters Girl as we know it may never have existed. 
Two busty models from a Hooters restaurant are up in arms about having to pay for their famous skimpy uniforms. Curvy waitresses Gina Rosati and Amy Frederick, who work in a Long Island, New York, branch of the raunchy chain, have filed a law suit against the company for failing to reimburse them around £12 for their skimpy Hooters outfits. Filing their case in Brooklyn federal court on Thursday, the two women are looking to get the £3.30 'Dolphin' shorts, £3.60 Lycra tank top, £1.50 shiny beige pantyhose, £1.90 pouch and £1.40 white socks they paid for given back to them. Under New York state law, an employer is required to provide a uniform for its staff if they cannot wear their own clothes. "Hooters of Long Island requires its waitresses to purchase and wear a nationally recognisable uniform," attorney Louis Pechman, for the women, wrote in the lawsuit.

  • Enjoy this image regardless of how unrealistic it is. (Sorry to burst your bubble.)
  • Without alcohol, there would be no Hayden Panettiere in beer wench costume.
  • This whiskey bottle may have never been positioned ever so cleverly.
  • Here's Claire Forlani (remember her?) sipping Dewars on the rocks, as she should be.
  • If prohibition had not ended 79 years ago, Chrissy Teigen would not be double fisting.
  • Nor would we have the image of Charlize Theron ever so gently sipping a beer out of a plastic cup. Stars! They're just like us.
  • Thank goodness for the 21st amendment, for Scarlett Johansson would not have been paid to pose with a $100 bottle of Champagne.
  • Because, why not?
  • Christna Hendricks might not have worn this low cut dress and poured herself a glass of Johnnie Walker Black had she not been not protected under the 21st amendment.
