"How the fark many of these things do I gotta eat before I get a buzz? Why don't I just cut out the middlebird and eat the mangoes myself?"

I have trouble believing that Australian birds can't handle their drink.

This article fails without video of drunk birds.


Also this scientist may be a doctor but he needs to stick to plants:


Professor Considine confirmed fermented mango is not harmful to humans because we are unlikely to eat a mango that has reached that point. "It's a unique smell," he said. "People would know if they were eating a mango that had gone so far as to have appreciable levels of alcohol."It wouldn't taste so good anymore, and it would be kind of soft and mushy."
