Now That's What I Call Drinking

This week's News Of The Weird reports that a distillery in Scotland is preparing to make a whiskey with 92% alcohol. That would be 184 proof. The recommended dose is two spoonfuls. The manager of the distillery, (Bruichladdich, which probably stands for "knee-walking snot-slinging drunk" in Gaelic), is quoted as saying "I'm just hoping the distillery doesn't explode." Now that's a marketing campaign.

Listen, I like drinking as much as the next person, but if your drink of choice is 184 proof, you may as well punch a hole in yur own abdomen, rip out your liver, tear off a chunk with your teeth, stomp up and down on the remainder for a few minutes, and then put it back in and krazy glue the hole shut. Because your liver is going to work the same either way.

Nevermind the burning of your mouth,throat, and esophagus as it's going down.

Perhaps we could market it as a weight-loss product? I'm sure if we got Nutri-sys. or Jenny C. on board, we could promote it as a calorie-saving way to get hammered.

You are right, but I'm wondering whether drinking your liver away could be lightly more fun then punching a hole in your abdomen. Just a thought?

Damn! One could make a Molotov Cocktail out of one of its bottle and you wouldn’t even have to empty the booze and replace it with gasoline!

I dunno JDR, I think if you;re drinking at 184 proof it might actualy be more fun to rip out your liver. And less painful.

I don't "drink" at all.

Anything.

So a swig of this would probably kill me.
