The drunk replied, "Well then, forget that beer and just give me the other one."

The bartender is a horse
A drunk walks into a bar and notices that the bartender is a horse. What's more, the horse is boasting to all the patrons that he's the new owner.

I just thought that the monkey would never sell this place."

So he points toward the window and adds, "Look at all the leaves turning color, and the grass is going brown. Now what kind of summer is that?" The drunk replies: "Doc, I can answer that question and you'll be sure I'm not losing my mind. Its a lousy summer."

The first drunk is getting irritated, "Look, are you going to share your Cherry Jack with me or not?" There's a long hard pause and then he gets his answer: "Well, maybe I will if you ever make up your mind."

Drunk Guilt

It's late at night and a drunk is woken by his wife who says, "Honey, I'm cold." Even though he doesn't want to get up, the drunk still feels guilty about his last binge and so he gets up and gets her a blanket. A few minutes later, he hears, "Honey, now I'm too warm." Again the drunk's remorse makes him get up, and he opens the window. A few minutes later he hears, "Honey, now I want a real man." Well, that does it for the drunk. Guilt or not, he decides to make his stand and says: "Aw c'mon, now you're just being unreasonable. It's the middle of the night. Where am I going to find you a real man?"

Drunk Logic

As they dash into the street without looking, a car swerves to avoid hitting them and crashes into the bus stop they were just sitting at. One drunk looks at the other and says: "Talk about lucky. We left that bus stop just in the nick of time."

A big Canadian Thanksgiving Day THANK YOU to all visitors for stopping by, for submitted posts, and for the kind words of encouragement to keep this site going: This blog's for You


"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."
- Melody Beattie

Thanksgiving Day Party

A New Yorker was fed up with his Wall Street life, so he liquidated his portfolio, sold all of his belongings and moved to Alaska. After five months alone in an isolated cabin, he heard a knock at the door. He wasn't surprised to see a man who looked much like he did by that time: kind of scruffy with a bushy beard. "I live on the other side of this hill," the stranger told him, "I'm having a Thanksgiving Day party at my place tonight and you're invited." The man was delighted, "Sounds great! I've enjoyed being alone here, but I feel ready for some socializing again." The stranger turned to go, then stopped and added, "By the way, I should mention that these things can get out of hand. There's always some heavy drinking and fighting." The man smiled to himself and replied, "Don't worry about me. I lived in New York and have been to some pretty wild parties. By the way, I'm not familiar with the social scene around here. Does it matter what I wear?" The stranger gave him a weird look and said: "Don't be ridiculous, it will only be the two of us."

Man No Sober

The drunkard he staggers around
The alleys of cities and towns
His sorrows he tries to drown
Solution to his problems
Can never be found
Booze is what he choose
Like a gipsy he's tipsy
He drinks too much whiskey
Like a gipsy he's tipsy
He drinks too much
A Mr Winehead stagger
Booze is what he choose
Watch him how he topples over
Man no sober
In and out of discotheques
In and out of wine bars
Burnt out shell looks a wreck
Got to help him somehow
Greets bartenders drink firewater
Dance bossanova he topples over
With a bottle in his hand
Man no sober
From dust till dawn
He staggers around
From dust till dawn
He drinks it all day long
Watch him how he topples over
Man no sober

(Lyrics from reggae song by Steel Pulse
on their 1982 "True Democracy" album/CD)

Too thin

Two drunks are stumbling through town when they come across one of their drinking buddies, passed out on the sidewalk. As they're trying to revive him the first drunk says, "I'm getting worried about him. I don't think he's been eating at all." The second drunk agrees: "That could be his problem. I mean, you haven't been eating much and you're too thin. And I haven't been eating much, and I'm too thin. But I swear, he's thinner than both of us put together."

He just wants a beer

A bartender has had a rough night and is ready to go home. After finally throwing the last drunk out and locking up, he hears someone knocking. He opens the door and sees a snail who says, "Thanks, I can't reach the door handle." The bartender stops him before he says another word, "Sorry, we're closed." The snail pipes up, "Hey, it took me forever to get here and I just want a beer!" The bartender has had enough. He tells the snail to get lost and kicks him across the street. One whole year later the same bartender is locking up the same bar. He opens the door and there's that same snail who says: "What did you do that for? I just want a beer."

The right woman

Two drinking buddies are in the bar, doing what they do, when one asks the other, "So tell me, how come you never married?" When the single drunk says that he's waiting for the right woman, the married drunk asks him what his idea of the right woman is. For a minute, the single one looks as thoughtful as a drunk can look, then says, "Well...she should be good looking with a great personality, have a good job, and own her own house." Trying to be about as realistic as a drunk can be, the married one scoffs, "Aw c'mon, a woman like that would have to be crazy to marry a guy like you!" The single drunk replies: "Maybe, but I'm not that picky so who cares if she's crazy?"

The bartender is confused and tells him so, "I don't get it, isn't that good news that she won't nag you for thirty days?" The drunk replies, "Sure it is, but today is the last day."

Ice Fishing

A drunk is loaded and decides to go ice fishing. He finds a nice spot on the ice, has a swig from his "thermos" and starts cutting a hole. Just then he hears a loud booming voice, "YOU WILL FIND NO FISH THERE!" He looks around, sees nothing, takes another swig and keeps cutting when he hears it again, "YOU WILL FIND NO FISH THERE!" At a loss to explain what's happening he asks, "God, is that you?" The voice replies: "No, I'm the manager of this hockey arena."
