Glad to help.

I still suspect we're only second or third in the consumption of cheap vodka.

True story: I once witnessed a pair of "hobos" (ugh) divvying up their change, when one of 'em shouts to the other: "Wait a minute, we have enough here for a bottle of vodka — and you want WINE?!"

They were maximizing their utility, I suppose.

Which nation now drinks the most COORS LIGHT?

Per (hic) capita?

dado (#102)

That's more than a case per person…which is less then a glass per week. Nothing to be proud of here.

Considering how many newborn babies, inmates, Mormons, secret Muslim presidents, Baptists and recovering alcoholics we have, that's a statistic worth toasting.

Smitros (#5,315)

But the trend is good.

Yeah, but how much of it was GOOD wine vs. the stuff you drop an ice cube into?

Bittersweet (#765)

I see what you did there…think it's enough to get her back?

Hard to tell, the commenter lookup function no work. She could have snuck in.
