Dinking licence.

Post by Mr Boozificator »

What if an exam was all of a sudden necessary to have the right to drink, like a driving licence.
What should be the tests according to you?

Spending mid summer festival drinking in Finland. If you do not die you succeed.

Anyway, what is "Dinking"? Is it like "Snurgling"?

I'd like it to be just on capacity. 3 pints (of vodka) and you’re in. Or as i call it, Tuesday.

no fighting (at least not too much)
no drinking of alcopops
cider subject to sublicensing
spirits only to be mixed properly, i.e. none of this liqueurs mixed with fanta carry on
no heavy machinery
no bar hogging
I'm sure I'll think of more soon

There has been a recent spate amongst some of my co-drunkards of buying a large snack that requires a plate mid-session in the pub. This sort of behaviour should not be tolerated. Plates take up valuable alcohol space on the bar/table. Snacks (if for some reason you require them) should be no larger than a SMALL packet of pork scratchings.

I still believe my initial idea was decent. We had a guy from London drinking with us last night and he spent good few hours in his own puke, shit and piss. For those whom think we were laughing at him maniacally the whole time, I will let you know that was not the case. I think. I don't recall anything after 11pm.

No, really, I have been thinking about this. And... wait for it now...

Doesn't matter if you don't know one drink from the other--though points plus if you do!

Mostly, you should not be sloppy. Like, hit a few ounces of bourbon, and don't do anything stupid. Or rude. We do not like rude.

If you can kill a bottle without having anyone call 911, (999 for you frners) you're good.

Bonus points for waking up in the morning (or afternoon) and not mumbling "Oh no..."

See, kids, it's simple. Drinking is fun! Cheers!

The only sensible reason for another fascist license regarding drinking should be the ability to lift the dominant arm and operate the hand to deliver to the mouth a glass rim brimming with brew. If that cannot be accomplished, no license shall be issued.

You need a bartending license? Damn. And I thought NY was over regulated. What does said license entail?
