Raging drunk trifecta in play?

/so what did the pup blow?

Psh.  You call that a dog?  Rat with a hippie wig.

My dog told me he wants Stoya. What brand is that?

No Stoly for my dog until Putin gets out of the Crimea. Tito's is better vodak anywho, and made right here in U.S.A. Well, sorta. Texas. But still.

Sub-tard must be new here.

/everyone knows it's vodak

"Because pure alcohol can alter antifreeze chemicals and allow them to be flushed out of an animal's body, Charlie was given 700ml of vodka over two days via a tube."

Wrong.  It's because ethylene glycol has two primary means of being metabolized, one fast way via the liver and then a slower way via a means I've forgotten.  Unfortunately, the fast way leads to toxicity.  Get the subject drunk, and the liver spends all its time processing the alcohol instead of the coolant, allowing the latter to be metabolized out the slow but non-toxic way.

antifreeze poisoning?  dnrtfa but this treatment is as old as dirt.

First sentence of the article: For many people, arriving at A&E at death's door and being told the only way for you to survive was to get blind drunk would count as a result.

Can someone parse this out for me?  Maybe counting means something different in the UK?

How much antifreeze do I have to drink to get a dry martini around here?

When I was a kid we had a poodle/yorkie mix who got distemper.  The vet said he had to be put down.  My mom got him drunk on Southern Comfort.  He ran around like a lunatic, then dove under a bed and slept for three days.  When he woke up he was apparently cured.  Not sure what to make of it, but it worked.

welcometofark.jpg I guess.  This should've fallen under not news.  We kept a bottle of vodak in the pharmacy drawer for just this circumstance, and it never made the news.

My dog is no snob and licks her own butt, but she'd refuse Stoli.

/mine want Ketel
//ask for it by name


Ketel One is a testament to slick marketing. Vodka is an un-aged, un-infused clear spirit. It is not a premium liquor. Tito's is probably one of the purest, smoothest vodkas out there without the massive price increases to pay for P-Diddy commercials.

My dog prefers Miller Lite, proving he's still a puppy. I'm hoping age will refine his tastes but he's still not getting my Weyerbacher.

Having never seen a Ketel commercial....

Of all of the vodka I have been able to taste, Ketel is one of two that I prefer. Does not taste like rubbing alcohol and has never once left me hungover.

P. Diddly can suck it.

It's because the alchohol anhydrase in the liver breaks down the ethylene into fomaldahyde, when the liver is unable to process it the kidenys will eventually filter it out on their own (it's bad for the kidneys, but not nearly as bad as formaldahyde).

Stolichnaya is auto parts cleaner.

Mutt shoulda at least got Skyy or the el cheapo but drinkable Luxo.

Titos or GTFO

You give big, hardy breeds the straight shyat. The maltese would have preferred one of those new vodka flavors, perhaps marshmallow or candy cane.

Worst. Vodak. Evar.

Didn`t read TFA. Antifreeze?

Vodak is OK if you want to mix it but if you want to drink neat then it`s a nice cognac.

And an ice cube but just one.

Not to encourage anyone but they do this to people too. (until they they get the dialysis machine warmed up, that is)

fark Diddy, but Ketel One is a much smoother vodka than most.  It's either because of their filtering or because they stick with all wheat grain, or both.  I can't drink potato vodka, it tastes sour to me.
