Ladies & Booze

The cartoon poster child of the blurry line between fun and sloppy. 

A perfect match in some ways......a potential disaster in others. Where exactly is the line between coquettishly inebriated and sloppily drunk? We all know the extremes, but what about that blurry middle ground?

Let's take a visual tour:

This is just naughty enough to offer promise but stay still within the boundaries .

Adorably giggly.

Classy. Meeting the challenge head on.


Here we go. Aggressive drinking.....but still sexy.

Still upright......well, one is.......but why do I think she'd throw up on me?

Here's an attractive pose.....but at least she's still hanging in there.

Better out than in.  

Maybe she just really loves her cooler?

Airing it out.

I am ashamed to admit that despite the wrongness of it, I'd be tempted to take some limited advantage of this situation....not that I would though. Proof you can be passed out drunk and still appealing. 


I'm not feeling that same temptation here. Instead I'd be tempted to look for a pulse.


We've all had our dumb moments I'm sure. I know I have. But while some of these shots can be a little wince-inducing, there is something funny about this topic we can all relate to to a degree. There are scores of online photos of passed-out people who have been drawn on, posed with stuff, dressed funny, and one that really made me laugh:

Aren't friends the best?

    1. If you want a few chuckles, Google "passed out with duct tape".

    1. That's fine. Like BDSM limits, humor is just as personal and subjective. I know decent folks who are quite gentle and humane who LOVE You Tube videos of people tripping, falling and otherwise injuring themselves. And I don't see the humor in that.

    2. agreed I don't see the humour in that either - when people laugh at other people's 'conditions' no matter what that condition is.... seems condescending to me shrug.. but that's who I am.

    3. What else is comedy but seeing the humor in the human condition in all of its expressions? I see humor in just about everything. I guess the pratfall stuff just seems either juvenile or bothersome when the pratfall appears to have serious consequences. I guess it's one thing to chuckle at a tumble that the person who tumbled is laughing at as well, and laughing at some "fail" where the victim ends up in the E.R.

      As for drinking humor? That is so rooted in the human experience that it is ripe for humor. It's not laughing down, it's laughing at the occasional "drunk" in all of us.

  4. Drunk and out of it can be very funny and sometimes disturbing. It is self inflicted and like you said we have all done it to some degree. I my opinion as long as no one was hurt laugh it up.

    1. Agreed. It's a matter of degree and circumstances......like anything.

  5. I'm sure there are some embarrassing shots of me lurking in some fraternity brother's college album. I've always been pretty open about my own excesses with alcohol and, while I do see a value in reining it it, it's certainly been a good companion over the years. Hell,I met my future wife at a frat party when she was three sheets to the wind. I had a colleague at work who was a former Marine and all around "man's man" who put it thusly: "Every important relationship in my life has either been started or fostered with beer." Many of my fondest memories in life involved alcohol-fueled excesses.

    1. I've had some memorable experiences, but thankfully just enough to make for funny exchanges of "war stories", but not enough to make me worry. Now? The worst I ever get, is just a bit overly chatty and have a little headache the next day. Wisdom with age. LOL

      And booze as a companion? I'm in complete agreement. I have used mixology not as a bad thing, but as something to make guests feel really special.

  6. I recall a good friend passing out on his birthday... to be fair we were all young and stupid. When he woke up he was well decorated. Thankfully it wasn't marker pens or anything permanent - there were many ladies around and he found himself the (nonconsensual) recipient of a make-over. He made a rather fetching gal. Tho he didn't find it funny at the time.

    1. I've never participated in such a thing, but I can't say I won't snicker at it. For guys there's an understood rule about passing out: essentially if you can't hold it together, you are at the mercy of those who do.

      One of the things people DON'T see with shots like this is that these same people taking these shots or decorating some passed out person, are the ones who will have to go out of their way to take care of the person too. It's not fun to deal with someone like this and get them home and in bed, so having a little fun at their expense is kind of like the price for being cared for when others are taking care of themselves.

      I've never been mean to a really drunk person, and usually they're your friend, girlfriend, whatever. I mean who the hell would you be drinking with in the first place? Friends practical joke each other when they're sober.

    2. it is true what u say. I think we ALL knew that if were to pass out then we'd be at the mercy of (and also under the care of) those around us who would see us safely home.

      So yes, a bit of fun as "payback" for being a burden to them on said night of wanton drunkenness seems a fair price! LOL

  7. Airing out looks extremely red. I think some action happen before she passed out.
