This is a book for a jolly drunk. The kind of drunk who becomes overly jovial and wants to cheer everyone up by challenging them to games designed to make them feel stupid while affirming their own superiority.
It is not a book for cruel drunks, violent drunks, horny drunks, miserable drunks, hostile drunks, black-out drunks, slutty drunks, chug-a-lug drunks, or penniless drunks.
Be warned: today’s drunk might not have many of the props mentioned within. Cufflinks, for example. An American car in the parking lot. A matchbook. Cigarettes.
