I'm fairly certain that's his reaction after he woke up and saw the woman he brought home.

For extra irony points I'd love to know how many full tumblers of vodka each artist chugged while sketching

Hmm, some of those are actually fairly clever and creative.

"Alcohol - Enemy Of Mind"

That one looks like an Absolut ad.

So who made vodka in the Soviet Union?

it would seem my choices are to be a poor, industrious laborer/peasant who will never have anything or a poor unproductive laborer/peasant who will never have anything but has an exciting life.

Hmm...what to do?

So if I drink, I can buy the next bottle by stealing scrap from work? I'm ok with this.

You could almost just caption this one "ABSOLUT BRAIN" and toss it in a glossy magazine.

Son if there's one thing I've learned over the years it's that you can't make a toilet seat when you're hammered.

Scrap is a bad translation, defective product is a better one.

Alcoholism makes marijuana stoners look like social honor students.  I mean a lot of us are messy, lazy, and not always the brightest individuals, but at least it doesn't make us beat our wives.

A friend has this up in her bathroom:

Sadly I can't find a bigger version to link to because the captions are hilarious.

Oh Russia. These cannot have been effective considering how notorious your country is for its drunks.

I'm not sure....My father was an alcoholic, but the peaceful person in the house.  My mother, on the other hand, was farkin loony but sober.

You'd think someone who used drugs would avoid stereotypes associated with such things.

I guess just as every alcoholic beats their wives, every stoner is just in a holding pattern before selling their body for smack and stealing copper.

Don't drink.

You fall into industrial mixing machine and get crushèd.

Reduce purity of Russian bread.

I would love to open a pub called "Drinking is Dangerous" and have all of these posters framed and displayed around the bar. People can tell their significant other that it is D&D night and clearly they (women) will not come (some farkettes are outliers in a good way) or to the single person, "going to double Ds tonight". Either way, win win.

I eventually saw the poppy, but my brain kept trying to process the image as a bladder.
