George Rapp

Production note:
Today’s text is courtesy of Mr. Tim Rutherford – banjo player, life coach, and lover of old f*ckers everywhere. I, as always, supplied the sweet-ass sketch. Think of it as, like,
a history gang bang today.

In the early 1800s, George Rapp founded a small town in Indiana called New Harmony.  He built a labyrinth outta hedges.  He also made wine and whiskey, and grew hemp for rope. . .yeah, right.

Rapp founded a religious sect called the Rappites and his followers were expected to be celibate. Husbands and wives who joined the club were expected to live as “brother and sister.”

Yeah, right, only like brothers and sisters from neighboring Kentucky. . .
