As you’d expect from a man whose career began just before the Civil War, Jack Daniel’s early life has all the makings of a great story. That’s why we’re surprised it took nearly 150 years for someone to write a biography about the guy, then another decade and change for television to think about putting out a show. WGN America and Aaron Paul’s production company, Lucid Road Productions, have started work on Blood and Whiskey, a drama about the life of Jack Daniel. Presumably, the show will follow Daniel as he is orphaned at 15 and discovers distilling, works as a moonshiner for 10 years, then founds his famous distillery in an attempt to go legitimate. We’re going to assume a lot of the series will focus on Daniel’s time as a moonshiner, since that’s where most of the action was, but with Andrew Colville of Mad Men fame penning the script, you can bet the corporate plot lines are going to be meaty as well. Marketing those square bottles won’t be easy.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
