"That pizza made me drunk!"

The year was 1974 and the place was the Pizza Hut in Paris, Tennessee. I was on my second date. We had ordered a pizza with Canadian bacon and mushrooms. Not far from our table sat 4 people (two guys and two girls) who were twenty something. They had done finished the first picture of beer and working on the second. When our pizza arrived one of the guys at the other table said "that pizza made me drunk." 8O

Immanual Kant was a real pissant
Who was very rarely stable

Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy begger
Who could think you under the table

David Hume could outconsume
Schopenhauer and Hegel

And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
Who was just as schloshed as Schlegel

There's nothing Nietzsche couldn't teach ya
'bout the raising of the wrist

Socrates himself was permanently pissed


John Stuart Mill, of his own free will
On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill

Plato, they say, could stick it away
Half a crate of whiskey every day

Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle

Hobbes was fond of his dram

and Renee Descartes was a drunken fart
"I drink, therefore I am"


As Socrates himself is particularly missed
A lovely little thinker but a bugger when he's pissed!

Monty Python

About an hour ago I had been out in the field buying land (cow pastures) and this guy that I was dealing with had a bumper sticker that said: "If it bucks, ride it!" :wink:

The Potty Song: (to the tune of, Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)
Tinkle, Tinkle, little pee,
in the potty you will be.
Poopy, Poopy stinky-O,
in the Potty you will go.

Tinkle, tinkle little Matt
Wonder where the bathroom's at
If we don't find one soon
He will make a big lagoon
Tinkle, tinkle little Matt
Wonder where the bathroom's at

Love that one.
And from the same poem...

Ale, man, ale’s the stuff to drink
For fellows whom it hurts to think

.............

Oh I have been to Ludlow fair
And left my necktie God knows where,
And carried half way home, or near,
Pints and quarts of Ludlow beer:
Then the world seemed none so bad,
And I myself a sterling lad;
And down in lovely muck I’ve lain,
Happy till I woke again.

Beer: The moral beverage. (Quotable Quotations)

"Happy till I woke again."

In April of 1981 I can remember pulling a spring bender. I was in my first year of marriage and working as a Life Insurance Agent. Our income tax refund came in ($1,146.) My wife and I went to a nice restaurant for a candle light dinner on a Friday evening. On Saturday she went on a shopping spree with her mother. I worked all day but spluged and bought a case of beer on Saturday night. The next morning I took a friend and the remainder of the case on a fishing trip. We went to a farm pond so we could fish and get smashed. By noon we were out of beer so we drove to the Country Club to buy more. At the C.C. we picked up another fishing/drinking buddy and he drove us somewhere in Kentucky. I had passed out but when I woke up I can remember we were at a beautiful place. There was this colossial southern mansion surrounded by an open pasture with a white rail fence. There were Tennessee Walking horses and Kentucky bluegrass. (I had thought maybe we had been killed in a car wreck and then woke up at Heaven's gate.) I must have passed out again.

The next morning I had a prize winner of a headache. :P

(That was the last time that I overindulged to such extents.)

It's a keen favorite of mine, too, Lou -- memorized it eons ago and recite it often. It was a poem I could count on to turn many a college student on to poetry. But not just for the usual collegiate fascination with drinking and liberation. The world view rang true to experience: "And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure" -- similar to the Dead's "And when it looks like easy street, there is danger at your door."

My wife and I lived all alone
in a little brown shack we called our own.
She loved beer and I loved rum
Tell you what it was, oh we had fun.

Ha, ha, ha, you and me,
Little Brown Jug how I love thee,
Ha, ha, ha, you and me,
Little Brown Jug how I love thee.
Had I a cow that gave such milk
I would dress her in the finest silk
Feed her on the choicest hay
And I'd milk her twenty time a day.

--Josephy E. Winner

Very nicely put. But it's been driving me nuts for two days because I know there are more quotes like that and I can't think of them :)

And now that you mention it, Lou, I'm having trouble thinking of more quotations like that, too!

But here's something fun for a fellow poetry lover/English major. In celebration of national poetry month, the Learning Network has several interactive quizzes. Go here:

-- and enjoy!
