If there’s one thing we learned from W.C. Fields, it’s that nobody is funnier than a drunk. Of course, in this day and age, the red-nosed antics of an overweight alcoholic are more likely to cause you to call the nearest rehab center than burst out laughing. Still, if drinking humor is your thing, there are ways to get what you’re looking for, and most of them involve the Internet. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the top 5 funny alcohol blogs.
#5: The FunCage Blog
The FunCage Blog has a really funny page called “Drunk People Yoga Positions.” The idea is that they show a standard yoga position and then beside it they show a drunk posing naturally in the same position.
There is certainly some sort of scientific value to a site like this, as it demonstrates the natural flexibility of the human body in a relaxed drunken state, but that’s not really what it’s about. It’s about seeing drunks passed out in positions so ridiculous that you could only get into the pose after training in yoga for about ten years. The Halasana pose is especially hilarious, assuming the drunk doing it actually survived – it looks a little dangerous.
#4: Funny Blog
The not-very-creatively titled Funny Blog also has a page dedicated to alcohol-related humor that has some pretty good stuff on it. If you don’t find enough alcohol jokes on this page, there is a link on the site to beer commercials, too.
As with many popular alcohol blog sites, this site is mostly pictures with one-liners, like you would find on a t-shirt or bumper sticker, but at least these are pretty good one-liners. Some of its top jokes include “I didn’t text you. Vodka texted you.” and a picture of a man on a park bench with a cardboard sign that reads, “Need cash for alcohol research.”
#3: Year of Living Sober
This, finally, is a blog with actual blogging involved, not just a funny picture or slogan here or there. The Year of Living Sober blog details a social experiment in which the author, who presumably liked to drink a bit, tries to live sober for a year and blog about it.
Of course, the funniest thing about the blog would be if the experiment ends prematurely in a gin-filled bathtub with strippers and a surprise appearance by Billy Dee Williams with a 40-ounce bottle of his favorite malt liquor, which the author would describe in graphic detail.
As for the actual humor on the blog, there’s a joke on there about a philosophy student in a bar. The bartender asks, “What’ll it be?” and the philosophy student launches into a philosophical evaluation of the terms “it” and “be” and the moral, religious, and intellectual ramifications of the question. The bartender tells the philosophy student to “Get out.”
Get it? Well, don’t worry, it’s actually not the best joke on the site and some of the non-joke observations are pretty funny, too. All in all, it’s well worth the time.
#2: Best Funny Quotes
The Best Funny Quotes website features a page dedicated to funny alcohol quotes called–you guessed it–“Funny Alcohol Quotes.” Over the years, there have been plenty of famous people who’ve said funny things about alcohol and drinking, and this site catches quite a few of the more memorable quotes.
Among the better quotes on the first page of the blog would be George Burns’ classic about how many drinks it takes to get him drunk. Another classic would be a Frank Sinatra quote about alcohol being man’s worst enemy, but the bible urges you to “love your enemy.” When you get tired of reading the drinking quotes, there are pages of quotes on other subjects, too.
Sometimes the funniest things are the ones that aren’t intended to be funny. Take laws, for instance. The BlogYourWine blog has a page dedicated to the funniest alcohol laws ever created, and you can believe that there are a few.
Did you know that it is illegal to get a fish drunk in Ohio? You can also get in trouble if you attempt to serve an alcoholic beverage to a moose in Fairbanks, Alaska. And you thought you wouldn’t find useful information on a funny alcohol blog, didn’t you?
So those are five of the top funny alcohol blogs you’re likely to find; at least if you search today. Remember, the great thing about blogs is that they change constantly, so the next side-splitting alcohol blog might be posted while you’re reading this. One thing is certain – just about any blog is funny if you drink enough alcohol before you read it.
