Meet Shelby Herring, Brutally Honest & Drunk Ole Miss Student

Like Ole Miss student Shelby Herring, we never had much school spirit.
But unlike Shelby Herring, we never got our school spirit by day drinking and then drunkenly blathered on camera, thus becoming the Internet’s newest viral video star. In between answering important questions about what’s a “hotty totty” and her favorite quarterbacks, Miss Herring…

Winos Don’t Know How Much Wine They Drink Because What Does It Matter? More Wine Please!

How do I put this in a way that won’t lead my coworkers and family to stage an intervention? I am a functioning wino, by which I mean I drink a lot of wine, but I’m always on time for work, rarely get wasted or have drunken outbursts, and smell just fine, thank you. How…

Research Suggests That More Intelligent People Drink More, And Begin Earlier In Life

Inhibitions are gone, walls come down, restraint and shyness melt away, and suddenly we’re all just being us.

The Soapbox: In (Reluctant) Defense of Dr. Phil

I never thought I’d write an article under that title but here goes.

Earlier this week, Dr. Phil asked over Twitter: “If a girl is drunk, is it alright to have sex with her?” The Twittersphere overwhelmingly answered “No,” calling Dr. Phil a “moron,” “asshole” and “rape apologist,” among other things. I don’t doubt…

See larger version here.
To be drunk and to find yourself perusing the latest in helicopter camera drone technology is to be human. To actually purchase said helicopter camera drone technology off of Amazon.com is an entirely different thing.

Watch This Boozy Beauty Ruin A Bride’s Wedding!

You would think an open bar at a wedding would be the perfect way to liven up the crowd and get everyone’s dancing shoes movin’, but not for this unfortunate bride. One of her guests was bathing in booze. In this video, a red-dressed beauty gets bombed and a bit too comfortable with her makeshift…

The Trendiest New Way To Get Alcohol Poisoning

In 2004, people figured out that if you smoke alcohol, you can get drunk almost immediately without any of the empty calories associated with that old-fashioned liquid alcohol.  A product called AWOL (Alcohol Without Liquid) was quickly banned in the U.S. because inhaling alcohol straight into the bloodstream is super dangerous. But now inhaling alcohol…

Bloody Mary garnishes used to be pretty basic: a celery stick, olives, maybe a cocktail shrimp or two. Then came bacon strips and mini cheeseburgers. And now, well, look at this bloody monster, served up by O’Davey’s Irish Pub in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. It’s topped with a slightly precarious looking tower of garnishes including popcorn,…

Chris O’Dowd Cracks A Date Rapey Joke About Getting His Wife Drunk Enough To Finger Her

Why, Chris O’Dowd, why? The “Bridesmaids” actor and his wife Dawn O’Porter, a writer/documentarian, are hands-down my favorite celebrity couple. Which is why I was bummed to see O’Dowd tweet what basically reads like a date rape joke. “Drop the hand” is Irish slang for fingering or groping someone, which means he tweeted that he…
