“Blogger Given Yet Another Excuse to Drink”

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:28 pm



That’s the headline on a recent Hot Air Headlines item:

The link goes to a New York Times article about the health benefits of alcohol.

But it got me thinking: wouldn’t this headline apply to 90% of the posts I write around here?

I mean, I could easily make this a daily feature.

  1. There are some days when it applies to 90% of the comments, too.

  2. Lord knows most of the things I’m posting cause me to drink…

    Or is that something different? :)

  3. My dental hygienist “punishes” me for drinking red wine with sharp, painful instruments that make strange noises. She’s young and pretty. It’s the closest I have ever been to one of those San Francisco type relationships you hear about. I’m glad that it’s also good for me.

  6. I thought you were a hard liquor guy, nk.

    Only on special occasions, lately. Things change, my waist size most of all sad to say.

  7. As a cocktail blogger, I used to make a regular feature out of articles grudgingly admitting (or gleefully trumpeting) the health benefit of drinking.
    I’ve given it up. It’s just to easy. It could crown out the rest of my ramblings.

  8. I blogged about my drinking problem a while back.

  9. The use of booze is well documented throughout history.

    Amazing how many very hostile campaigns have been waged, under the influence.

    But bottled water was not on the shelves either.

    Well it could, but I don’t think so. If it were I think the quality of your posts would indicate such. So far they, mostly, don’t.

    The oven ran close to 15 hours today, I’m beat, tired, have enjoyed a Jazz victory, and am tired as hell, but for some reason,can’t sleep. So here I am sharing drivil with “intellectuals”. :)

    I do hope you all have a great day tomorrow/today, no matter what you do.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  11. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    The pilgrims landed where they did because they ran out of beer, I hope that doesn’t happen to me today. I lost about 20+ pounds on the beer diet, my wife is very unhappy that I cant drink beer and loose weight. I told her if you pick the right beer, it’s a meal.

  12. I think that Ben Franklin once said that beer is proof that God loves us, and wants us to be happy.

  13. I have a designated driver today . . .
    . . . and that’s all I’m gonna say.

  14. I drink every time I see Oiram properly use “your” and “you’re”, thus I am perfectly clean and sober.
