I wonder how difficult it was to find people drinking in Ireland...
 
2009-12-07 12:35:02 PM
I wouldn't call most of those pictures "classic".

UberDave: I wonder how difficult it was to find people drinking in Ireland...

Very hard, mainly trying to find someone sober enough to hold the camera.

You had a photo album? I can't remember anybody being sober enough to operate a camera.

Picture #5:

MONOKLISIA, Macedonia-According to local custom, every Jan. 8 women take charge and replace men in all traditionally male activities. During this day, there is a lot of music and dancing, 1988.


We really need to institute this holiday in America.

I'm so glad my college years were just before the advent of cell phone cameras. Sweet jebus.

I saw #2 at a Fark party. Shortly after, he slept with a tranny to prove he wasn't drunk.

Naw, anything that would be really amusing to watch women do would probably violate some kind of WSIB law.

LISTOWEL, Ireland- Where beer goggles are shared, 1996.

I've never understood drinking champagne from a shoe. Is it a new shoe? If it's not, does the poor woman have to tromp around in it for the remainder of the evening? Or is she usually too drunk to care?
 
2009-12-07 12:49:05 PM
2/3 of these are from 1980 or later. How the hell is that classic?
 
2009-12-07 12:49:52 PM
When I read "classic" I was thinking from the 30's. Half are from this decade, the other half are kind of old.

I had to GIS for two whole minutes to find a true oldie:

Come to my town to have a beer at a place that was open through prohibition, Harmer Tavern 109 years and running:

Once upon a time, in a far more chivalrous day in age, a man used to show his affection for a woman with more than a pick-up line and a martini from the bar. In nineteenth century Europe, gentlemen used to celebrate the performance of an exquisite ballerina and pursue their favorite courtesan by taking the ultimate plunge, performing the "tournée des grands Ducs," the act of drinking champagne from her shoe (new window).

THIS. Politics is going to be so awesome in ten years when these kiddies are running for office and pictures of them being dumb college students start to surface.

/Was one of the dumbest, really really glad cameras weren't there.

Hmmm, some of that looks like it could just be hipsters, not really old photoghraphs.

I'd rather tromp around all night in a sodden shoe than drink from one after someone's had their stinking foot in it.

Looks to me like the Duke is just plain old sniffing that shoe than trying to drink anything out of it.

"So drunk I lost my hat" is a common phrase in Transylvania where unsuspecting drunks are often robbed of their fedoras. The country is known for its chronic hat shortages and hatless men are easy prey for vampires. Sadly, these vampires are not the Vampira/Elvira types but hyper obese types that spend too much sleeping in the crypt and then starting the night out with a carbo load of empty calories before going out for a blood feast. They can often be heard moaning "Ohhhhhh my ankles hurt."
