She looks like she's smoothed some gun barrels in her day.

well, it doesn't help that she's not particularly attractive.

I mean, they wouldn't have 86'd Shakira.

There was a comedian (Stanhope?) that talked about the "discrimination against the ugly" thing. very funny and very true

No desire to see Kibble's bits. *shudder*

Look at this one: 21 days hard labor for being drunk and disorderly??

FTFA: "We may think of binge drinking as a distinctly modern phenomenon".

Has this author ever read a history book? What passes for binge drinking in modern society used to be the norm. Hell, one of the reasons Prohibition passed was that the Drys claimed (up until the Volstead Act) that beer and wine would still be fine, just not the intoxicating stuff.

My great grandmother's half-sister was booted for habitual drunkenness in 1902 (or so) FROM GRADESCHOOL. Apparently her older brothers thought getting her liquored up first thing in the morning was hi-larious.

Here lies Katy Dribble.
She couldn't get a drink, not a dribble
But please don't be sad and surly do not pout.
If you were looking for sex, she'd keep an eye out
Prices were fair, so do not quibble.

Farkers and Farkettes have existed since before written history. In every way the word fark can be used. I will limit this to someone enjoying beer, makes it simpler so some of you farks can keep up.

I have in my life not known many people to turn down a cold beer. Not drunks mind you, hell i am talking about people that almost never drink. My first beer was at 17 in a garage on a freakin 90 degree day. Now tell me what kind of brain damage would I have needed to say no to anything that came out of that cooler. Most of the time I ever seen a beer at my house growing up someone was building something. My new bedroom as a kid was built with beer, by beer brought to you by Coors and Bud. (It got a small room added on giving me a room for my bed in my bedroom, brought to you by the same wonderful folks.) Nobody paid anybody, Dad had beer. WTF do you want money for, he has beer.

Beer built civilization and it built my bedrooms. I was never into beer much, but some I liked. Now as I am older and have some health problem I would gladly drink the beer I didnt like. Not every day, but on a hot summer day (which is all that we get in the farking summer anymore), I miss beer.

Thats my point, damn I miss beer. So that next beer, pity me a bit and remember you are the blessed among us. You. Have. Beer.

I read TFA to make sure none of my ancestors were depicted.

That ascertained, yeah, I think the quality-control of booze back then was a little less reliable than now. You'd hear of unethical publicans cutting the stock with wood alcohol or worse, truly broke alcoholics resorted to some really sketchy stuff, malnutrition was way higher and in general, life was nasty, brutal and short.

I do, however, know that in old-timey bars of around this time, the cheapest drink in the house was a barrel marked 'Allsorts.' The tail ends of any unfinished drinks were poured into it, and you could drink all you wanted for a ha'penny. In places where bitter, stout, whiskey and gin were served, the overall effect could've been pretty horrible. My grandmother used to tell me stories of how, once my great-great-great-grandmother buried a drunken husband and emigrated to America at the age of nineteen with her two children, she absolutely refused anything to do with anyone who would drink whiskey and beer together. Whiskey was fine. Beer was fine. But they were never to be blended, because that was what the 'orrible Allsorts tasted of and only a person with no self-respect left would drink such a thing. Even during the Civil War and her subsequent remarriage, she never bent on this one key rule, and when the doctor tried to give her patent medicine with some good milk stout to build her up in her seventies, she tossed him out and recovered on whiskey alone. She lived to be eighty-one and only missed women's suffrage by a year.

And so it is a sacred tradition to this very day, in honor of our great-great-great-Grandmama, that the women of my family do not drop the shot into boilermakers. We drink the whiskey and the beer separately, as God intended. Why else would He have given us a hand for each glass?

Both occupations require bringing down the size of wood.
Though the prostitute job requires that you build it up before you knock it down.

Most photos show a little sadness or shame.  Susannah Booton's, however, has an air of 'Yes, I'm drunk. What the fark of it?'
