When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading

A hypochondriac told his doctor he was certain he had a fatal disease.
“Nonsense,” scolded the doctor. “You wouldn’t know if you had that. With that particular disease there’s no discomfort of any kind.”
“Oh no!” gasped the patient. “Those are my symptoms exactly.”

Faithful reader Pete Hourihan of Bear Point shares quotes attributed to famous folks about one of Pete’s favorite subjects…
“Sometimes, when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and their hopes and dreams. If I did not drink this beer, they might be out of work with their dreams shattered. I think, it is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true, than be selfish and worry about my liver.”

    “24 hours in a day. 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not!”
  • H. L. Mencken
    “When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let’s all get drunk and go to heaven.”

    “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”

    “Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, But the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.”

    “Well, ya see, Normmy, it’s like this .. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But, naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That’s why you always feel smarter after a few beers!”

    A friend of mine went on safari in Africa when he comes across an elephant. It’s lying on the ground in distress. He investigates and finds a thorn in its foot. He removes it and the elephant happily trots away.
    Twenty years later we were in London on business and were watching a circus procession pass by. When along comes an elephant, as it gets level with him, it stops, looks straight at him, reaches out with its trunk and lift him into the air and smashes him into the ground.
    It was a different elephant.

    A man was lying in a hospital, covered in bandages from head to toe. The guy in the next bed said, ”What do you do for a living?”
    The bandaged man replied, “I used to be a window cleaner.”
    “Oh, when did you give that up?”
    “About halfway down.” “Boss can I have a week off around Christmas?”
    “It’s May.”
    “Sorry. May I have a week off around Christmas?”

    A man and a woman were smooching on the sofa when the phone rang.
    “Who was that?” the guy asked.
    “My husband,” she replied.
    “I better get going then,” the guy said. “Where was he when he phoned?”
    “You can relax,” said the woman. “He’s downtown playing poker with you.”

    A quiet little man was brought before a judge.
    “Can you tell me in your own words what happened?” he asked the little man.
    “I’m a mathematician dealing in the nature of proof,” said the little man.
    “Yes, go on,” said the astounded judge.
    “Well. I was at the library and I found the books I wanted and went to take them out. They told me my library card had expired and I had to get a new one. I went to the registration office and got in another line. I filled out my forms for another card. I got back in line for my card.”
    “And?” said the judge.
    “And the clerk asked me, ‘Can you prove you’re from New York City?'”
    “What happened next?” the judge asked.
    “I punched him.”
