Friends don’t let friends drive drunk. Especially when your friend is a scruffy looking nerf herder/smuggler who likes to drives too fast (see Kessel Run)

Finnish Booze Day For Parents

by Screedler on June 16, 2016

How do grown up Finnish people behave, when their children allow them to drink alcohol?

This sketch from the TV show Siskonpeti is a play on Finnish kids’ traditional weekly “candy day” – karkkipäivä. It received the annual award for promoting temperance in 2015. And it’s hilarious.

Its a parody for “candy day”. A rule that a lot of Finnish families apply that their kids only get to buy candy one day of the week.

And The Award Goes To…

by Screedler on June 10, 2016

This fellow, for “Breathalyzer Performance at a Drunk Driving Check Point”.  I bet this happens to police around the world all the time. In China, they take drunk driving even more serious than we do; the legal limit in China is .02%.  A BAC of over .08% (most states in the USA) can result in up to 3 years imprisonment and 5 years license suspension.    Via Dangerous Minds:

Meet 33-year-old Xu who was pulled over by Shenzhen City police for allegedly drinking and driving. Xu is no one’s fool, so he decided to pull a fast one on the cops by only pretending to blow into the breathalyzer. This led to multiple attempts—all caught on video—of the police painstakingly trying to get a proper reading. Now you don’t need to speak Chinese to understand that Xu is absolutely refusing to follow the officer’s orders. He’s sly as a fox. Why hasn’t anyone else ever thought of this clever ruse? Drunks.

Xu’s face gets more and more exaggerated every time he blows into the breathalyzer. It’s pretty hilarious.

The More I Drink

May 28, 2016

Somehow I missed this one when it came out years ago. It has been in heavy rotation as background music at my store for the past couple of days. Maybe the muzak programmers think it increases alcohol sales. While the appeal to the casual listener was probably it’s comedic take on the alcoholic condition; the […]

Chuck Lorre’s First Vanity Card for Mom

May 5, 2016

I am pleased to report that after a couple of years, CBS’s sitcom “Mom” has become a bona fide hit show on TV, garnering good ratings and earning awards for the stars and makers. I wondered after the first few episodes if it would have legs and like AA, get people to “Keep coming back”. […]

Bob and Millie Frazier, average young New Yorkers who attended a party in the country last night and on the way home took a detour. Most of us on waking in the morning know exactly where we are; the rooster or the alarm clock brings us out of sleep into the familiar sights, sounds, aromas […]
