    You are wrong, Rat; it takes at least two bottles of wine and several shots of tequila.

    I’m the exact opposite. When I drink, my actions become extremely conservative because I fear embarrassment when I sober up.

    That’s ridiculous — when I’m sober, I’ll do anything.

    If you dumped a six-pack of beer into a large bowl, a mouse could swim in it.

    I love the detail Mr. Pastis puts into his cartoons. The string on the tea bag for instance.

    If you drink enough that you can’t move, you won’t be doing dumb things, except for drinking so much that you can’t move.

    Alcohol may not be the answer, but it’s undeniably a solution!

    Had a friend by the name of Dr. Ink Ing, but some idiot screwed up the punctuation, spacing, and the letter casing.

    Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise.

    “I just realized that all the dumb things I’ve ever done have happened after drinking a six-pack of beer …”

    … and were preceded by the exclamation, “Hey guys, watch this!”

    I will certainly drink to that philosophy, Rat.

    24 beers in a case, 24 hours in a day. Coincidence?

    What we have here is a failure to communicate. Goat stays away from alcoholic beverages. Rat stays away from non-alcoholic beverages.

    Totally different philosophies of life. Which of the two seems happier with his life?
