Okay, so this 64 year old dude from Dresden was trying to board a plane at the Nuremberg airport when he was told he'd have to buy extra luggage stowage for his 2 liter bottle of vodka, or hand it over to airport flunkies due to limits on carry-on liquids. What to do? He'd been on vacation in Alexandria Egypt, and I suppose he purchased the vodka in the duty-free, or some such, but anyway, at 64, he was addled enough to think the best solution was to chug-a-lug the wodka. Apparently 64 years of life on the planet has not done that guy much good if he doesn't know by now that it's not a good ideer to drink a liter of straight hard liquor. Besides that, um, isn't Dresden closer to the Russian source of (most) vodka than Egypt, anyway?

So, anyway, almost immediately, he was suffering from alcohol poisoning and was taken to a clinic in Nuremberg which, of course, meant that he still didn't get on his plane.

What a maroon!

By the way, I have no idea what this keytag says, but I like it. A lot. Want one.


For what it's worth, I think I'm falling in love with Greebo. How is this possible? Secretly suspect the author wants to be Greebo.

Bad rules stupid dude. You'd think he would know better.

Greebo sounds very much like Mark's previous cat who he adored and defended with equal adoration.
That morphing quality can become quite annoying, however, so I wouldn't recommend associating with such creatures on a regular basis unless they are well house-broken.

Do you think that maybe his head could be stuck in that smaller than him potty bowl??????

At 64, with alcohol poisoning how could he made any decision? Maybe he was afraid to fly;)

Worked with some Polish guys a while back and they supplied us with some very fine Polish vodka - what a dickhead.

Ah Greebo, you have much more to enjoy, his finest hours come in Witches Abroad and Maskerade.

People like vodka dude are on this earth to make me feel smart. Thank you, vodka guy!

Mushy said...

Yep, learned that lesson in '64!

Please fill me in on these books...What are they...where are they etc etc etc... You have referenced them a couple of times and I need a new series to delve into. Will you give me the details please?

There was a hijacking many years back. A Scandanavian airliner, where the hijacker requested among his demands. Beer. . Lots of beer. He got it. drank it. . and the paratroopers stormed the plane while he was puking in the bathroom.
