American Institutions #1 : The Hooker

Although an able enough soldier in the field (when drunk), Major General Joseph “Fighting Joe” Hooker, spent more time in Washington on R&R than he did fighting the rebels.

In fact, so fond of the war-time salons were he and his

men,  the ladies of the night were renamed “hookers” – a moniker they’ve retained to this day.

Whilst the orgins of vampire hookers are less clear, it would seem that Vlad wasn’t the only one taken with impaling.
