Drunk Babies Always Win.

February 18, 2011


As my pal Bill so eloquently said, “Drunk kids that look like dwarves at times….Can’t lose.” Very true Bill. Very true.

Inebriated Man vs. Flip-Flop; an Age Old Battle

April 21, 2010


It’s happened to all of us.  You drink a beer(or 30), sit out in the sun all day, and maybe even take something for that sore back of yours. Next thing you know, even the most dependable footwear turns it’s back on you.  It happens all the time.  It recently happened to the fellow above at Coachella 2010.  Enjoy the video as well as our play-by-play below!

  • 0:05 – Man makes first contact
  • 0:06 – Man loses it to a stumble back
  • 0:12 – Man attempts to use opposable thumbs to his advantage, sits down instead
  • 0:14 – Inconsiderate girls walk in front of camera
  • 0:16-0:23 – Flip-Flop manages to avoid the usually strong “pinch” technique
  • 0:24 – Outside source sabotages flip-flop
  • 0:25-0:33 – Man, w/ flip-flop in grasp attempts to secure it on foot
  • 0:34-0:41 – Man basks in glory w/ flip-flop on foot, adjusts glasses
  • 0:45 – In a drastic turn of events, Man stands upright, loses both flip-flops, it’s on now
  • 0:46-1:04 – Man takes break to mumble incoherently to group of girls, flip-flops laugh
  • 1:05-1:16 – In what seems like 2 minutes, Man stumbles and eventually grasps flops in hands(not feet)
  • 1:17-1:31 – Man starts from scratch, lands left flop on foot in one try! 3 double takes on the right later, he lands it on the 4th try
  • 1:33 – The crowd rejoices, Man feels accomplished, flip-flops take away a moral victory

Not pictured was the inevitable flip-flop revenge after the camera was turned off.

Laura Hall Seems Fun

April 16, 2010


Laura Hall, who hails from Bromsgrove, Worcestershire has been court ordered to refrain from entering a pub, bar, club or off-licence for two years. The Metro.co.uk writes:

The drinking banning order also states that she cannot buy alcohol or drink in any public place.

Police applied to magistrates for the order because of the number of drink-related offences that Hall had been involved in.

Wow. I can’t even imagine what kind of shenanigans Laura was getting herself into. I mean, really. I’ve seen people throw up on the bar, urinate on the bar(multiple times), throw people through windows at the bar, the list goes on. Yet, I’m pretty sure most, if not all, of those people were legally able to head on back the next day to get a bloody mary and nurse that hangover.

Snowed in = Beered in

February 9, 2010


I’m visiting the Arlington, VA area this weekend and it just started snowing in the past hour or so.  Normally it wouldn’t be that big of a deal, except the NWS has just released an updated forecast of 20-30 inches over the next 30 hours!  Some areas are supposed to exceed 30 inches!  This should definitely be the largest snowstorm I’ve even been involved with.

In preparation, yesterday I went to the grocery store and of course the beer store!  I got your usual suspects but I also hand-picked a 6-pack of well reputed, tasty craft beers.  Most of these I’ve never had before, one I had to get again because it’s just that good and out for a limited time.  I felt ambitious about this 6 pack and decided I’d grade these brews and write a bit about each as I partake.  After all, I don’t think I’m going anywhere anytime soon. I will follow the rating rules of the BeerAdvocate: Appearance, Smell, Taste, Mouthfeel, and Drinkability. Each category scores out of 5, then averaged for the total.

Be sure to check back after the jump throughout the weekend as I pop these bottles.  I may have all of them tonight, I may spread it out.  Haven’t gotten that far yet.  Frump on for the lineup of culprits.

*update* 2/9/10 5:45p.m.– It just started snowing again and we’re supposed to get 10-20 more inches, so I just opened the last one!
