Several factors contributed to the excessive roaring during this period of time.
 
* People were unable to withdraw money from their banks, and thusly angered, took to great roars. This was by far the single most important factor.

* [[Puerto Rico]]'s refusal to come home at a decent hour. She knows curfew is 11, yet she came home at 1 AM last night, no doubt up to no good, [[hanging]] out with those hooligans across the gulf. If she violates curfew one more time, she can forget about going to the State Ball. Why can't she be [[virgin|chaste]] and innocent like the [[Virgin Islands]]?

Common sight in the Roaring Twenties.

The Roaring Twenties refers to the 1920s period of time; specifically that of America. This decade was named thusly because it was characterized by an undue amount of roaring. Just so you know, there are no roaring 20s, 30s, 40s or 50s, and cernatilly not any Roaring Monkeys.

Effects of Roaring

A common stockbroker at the end of the roaring twenties.

Unsurprisingly, the Roaring Twenties left many Americans hoarse. The government attempted to remedy the situation with a Tongue Depression, to little effect. It would be ten years before Americans reached 19th-century voice levels again.

The Roaring Twenties were an era of wild market speculation where "one share in Radio" was the street name for a hit of RCA stock, often selling for well over-$100 as speculators sought out ever-louder radios to hear them over the roaring din. The market was later to crash to zero when a misguided attempt to bring electricity to Cleveland wiped out the entire North American grid, leaving the entire continent without power until 2003.

Prohibition

So prevalent was roaring, and so disruptive to normal societal patterns, that the government issued a ban on roaring, known as Prohibition. The ban was largely unsuccessful, in part due to stills. These people would attract the attention of law enforcement and then subsequently stand still, distracting officers from actual roarers. The name, "still," thus comes from the Old English phrase, "Crikey, it's the rozzers, scarper!" meaning, "At the base of Ozymandias."

Even after Prohibition was repealed, stills continued to be employed in all manner of illegal activities until government regulation and an influx of cheap stills from Canada destroyed the domestic market.
