Really fun weddings produce really fun wedding guests. When there’s an open bar at the reception, and the after party and the after, after party (which is an impromptu affair on a shuttle bus back to the hotel), you’re going to see some really drunk guests. This can be particularly fun not just for the blitzed people — but for the lightweights. You know, the two-and-a-half glasses of champagne at the reception and one shot of whiskey at the after party because their pride won’t allow them to turn it down types. They are the ones truly reaping the benefits of the spectacle. Staying relatively sober while everyone else is shitbombed allows the time and space to observe human nature. Well, drunken human nature. Below, a semi-sober assessment of the wasted guests you’ll see at a wedding. Keep reading »
Are any of you guys drunk cleaners? I’m not (I’m more of a drunk napper, myself), but a bunch of my friends are. After a few drinks, they want nothing more than to grab a mop, duster, or sponge and go on an intoxicated neat freak rampage. The next day they wake up to a hangover and a spotless home. Luckies. To celebrate Spring Cleaning Week, I thought it would be fun to come up with a list of drink pairings for drunk cleaners. What’s the best cocktail to sip while vacuuming? Which tropical beverage should you reach for while doing the dishes? Click through to find out!
This Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day, a holiday which holds many different meanings for different religious and ethnic groups, but for many young people, it’s generally interpreted as “The Day We All Get Super Drunk At Noon.” And so, in the spirit of overindulgence, I thought I’d take a moment to ask the rest of The Frisky staff about their random drunk talents — the things we can’t do (or at least can’t do very well) sober, but we excel at after a few martinis. Check out our list after the jump, and please share your own drunk skills in the comments! Keep reading »
By now you’ve probably caught LeAnn Rimes’ strange “X-Factor” duet with Carly Rose Sonenclar. To me, she just sounded like she was trying to out-sing a 13-year-old who’s more talented than her. And she did it in a very Jenna Maroney from “30 Rock” sort of way. Julie calls the sound that was coming out of her face “warbling.” I’m stealing that. Other people thought she seemed drunk. Rimes deflected the drunk allegations and made Sonenclar look bad in one fell swoop claiming that she was trying to help the “nervous” girl. Likely story. And sadly, Soneclar didn’t win, possibly due to Rimes’ warbling spotlight-stealing. [The Hollywood Gossip]
LeAnn wasn’t the only celeb who demanded “I wasn’t drunk!” this year. Click through for the top drunk deniers of 2012. The first step is admitting you have a problem …
Last night across the pond, Agent Provocateur co-hosted an event called Lingerie London in which a bunch of UK celebs walked down the catwalk in sexy lingerie for a microfinance charity called Seven Bar Foundation. Peaches Geldof made an appearance, Abbey Clancy pulled an Angelina on the red carpet (is that a double Angelina?), and the Internet got even more spank bank material.
Yet as much as I enjoys pictures of sexy women in lingerie, I was more taken by these pics of “Bridesmaids” and “Girls” actor Chris O’Dowd stumbling around drunk after the show. Looks like he needed some help dealing with bright lights and walking up the steps But, you know, adorably. [Photos: Pacific Coast News]
As of late, I feel as though my friends and I are in a Doors song, specifically “Riders On The Storm.” We are making the poor decision to ride into a the perfect storm of broken hearts and alcohol, combined with the fact that we’re in our mid- to late-twenties and freaking out about it. Which also means that we should know better. Yet we continue to get knocked down, and then get up again, because you ain’t ever gonna keep us down.
We need to calm our tits.

Oh darling Matthew Falkner of Palm City, Florida (always, always Florida), you and I are soulmates. After all, you were arrested in the parking lot of a Taco Bell, after employees there noticed you were idling your car in the lot and pressing heavily on the accelerator, with smoke coming out of the engine. Police asked for your identification, and instead you reached in your bag and pulled out a taco. I really love tacos, so I’d actually welcome a taco or five from you, my friend. Oh sure, your blood alcohol level was .22 when you were arrested — three times over the legal limit — but that just means you’d benefit from someone to share your happy hour margaritas with, right?
Apparently your car was on fire at the time of the incident, too. Perhaps you were looking to reheat your Burrito Supreme? [Foodbeast]
Kids these days! They’re just not getting drunk like they used to. When I was a young sprite, someone with a car had to drive into the nearest city and buy booze from the one dodgy liquor store known to sell to under-21s. But modern youth have taken to drinking liquid hand sanitizer. Could their mouths really be as dirty as the Orbit gum commercial says? No, silly: hand sanitizer contains 62 percent ethyl alcohol, which is teenager-speak for “good enough for me.” So far, six teens have been rushed to San Fernando Valley ERs after learning the hard way that this is a f**king stupid thing to do. Now, get off my lawn! [USA Today]
Alas, San Fernando Valley teens are not the only creative, bored individuals to consume the modern equivalent of bath tub gin. But there are more! Here are a bunch of other stupid ways to get drunk or high that WE TOTALLY DO NOT CONDONE YOU TRYING, you hear?
Like many of us, the first thing I like to do when I’m wasted is find the nearest multi-million dollar painting and rub up all on it. That’s just what poor Carmen Tisch, of Denver, Colorado, was trying to do when she was stopped by police for punching and then pressing her bare ass on a $30 million Clyfford Still painting.

Science! It’s a wonderful thing. For instance, thanks to science, we now know that 3 out of 4 photos that British people post on Facebook are taken while drunk. A study done by MyMemory.com polled 1,781 Brits who admitted that around 75 percent of the photos they were tagged in were taken while under the influence. Said Rebecca Huggler of MyMemory: “The fact that over three quarters of the average Brits’ Facebook photos are under the influence of alcohol was certainly interesting to find out, particularly when you consider what this says about us as a nation enjoying a drink or two!”
Or, it may just mean that we’re more inclined to let our guards down and let our friends snap photos of us when we’ve tossed back a couple. Tell us: Are most of your Facebook photos taken while tipsy? [Newslite]
