Quote by Carry Nation

This quote is a sarcastic and exaggerated statement that portrays men in a negative light. It suggests that men are often associated with vices such as smoking, drinking, and other reckless behaviors. The choice of descriptive words like "nicotine soaked," "beer besmirched," and "whiskey greased" implies an excessive indulgence in these activities. Additionally, the reference to "red-eyed devils" implies that men are constantly engaging in such behaviors, further emphasizing their perceived reckless nature. Overall, this quote employs hyperbole to criticize stereotypical notions about men and their alleged hedonistic tendencies.
