Sure. Start at $500 and we'll haggle upwards from there*.

Damn fine. Well done, Patchez and Mr. Viking. Hey, are ya gonna decant the whisk(e)y into the lovely five fingered vessel?

What would be really cool: drink directly form the decanter, straight upside down so that each capillary gets bubbles.

Man...

boo fucking hoo. Think I'll drown me sorrows now

Bluto came up with an idea for another auction for the memorial fund. I'm still not sure how it will play out so i'm putting the idea up here to see if this dog will hunt.

Here is the message i got from Bluto.

"Alright. Let's make this happen.
Palinka is on board.
I'll put up the shot glass (well used) and a small bottle of vodak in Schmernie's honor.
My take on it is that each buyer takes one shot from the bottle and then passes it on. The person to take the last shot gets to keep it.
Of course, drinking other shots is not only acceptable but encouraged."

Any thoughts?

I think that could be brilliant.
I would add a small old-school notebook (yes made of paper like they did in your grandfather`s day) and everyone having a shot can write down a short anecdote and sign it or something like that.

I can foresee the same problems with this, that caused the HBE to split into US/Canada and UK/Ireland/Continental Europe factions. After all, someone is going to have to bear the cost of Transatlantically shipping the bottle, at some point; and that's before we take our Antipodean Board members into account. I think that the only way that this would work would be to either have 3 different bottles on the go (assuming that there is interest in all three zones) or buying one huge bottle and flavouring it up with Skittles or something, then pour out miniatures and auctioning them off individually (using the PayPal account that Patchez is keeping the fund in, currently), on the understanding that each purchaser must pay extra for the costs of postage to their door.

I will confirm, and provide a signed certificate if needed.

Actually, this gentleman is modest about his full title, which is formally DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNK.

But Drunk for short will work, and attracts less attention from the authorities.

Donations so Far for the Fallen Funds.

Post by Patchez » Wed May 18, 2016 1:57 am

To date we've raised, slowly due to my drunken procrastination, $553.65 USD.

We have two places that we want to send it to as far as I know.

Palinka's family wanted medical gear for the hospital that P was in.

Thread here. http://www.drunkard.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=70609

Mayhem's Girl said this to be done instead of flowers.

Thread here. http://www.drunkard.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=69570

Any thoughts on how it should be divided and on whether we should keep trying to raise funds?

I don`t want to be judging here but it seems P.`s family is in bigger needs. A dispersal in their favour is something I`d say is understandable, like 100-150 for mayhem`s girl, the rest for family P.

Found on. Why not. Of course the devotion P. handled it with needs to be partially reproduced to make it somewhat succesful.
