Unfortunately, our highly litigious society assumes you blindly emulate whatever you see depicted in popular culture, necessitating intelligence-insulting disclaimers like the following. So: don’t drink if you are underage, don’t drink to excess, don’t drink and drive, don’t hurt yourself or anybody else. Et cetera. This site is intended to encourage the responsible, informed enjoyment of alcohol in its many forms for social pleasure. Some passages employ hyperbole for effect. Others are ironic. Still others depict actual abuse of alcohol but that doesn’t mean we suggest you try it. We mean only a humorous nudge at MADD and the “Designated Driver” folks and encourage their efforts.
