Men Talk About Alcohol

Ok, in here we'll talk about alcoholic beverages, coctails, drinking, experiences, etc.

Even though this thread is in the Tavern, I don't expect it die out like most of the others.



A friend from my group asks me for a shot, so I give him one; he asks me for a bottle, so I give him my bottle; he asks me to go drinking with him, so I do that.
Five days ago he asked me to give him my special rakija (doesn't matter why it's special, it just is) as a way to drown his sorrows.
I'm like "Why the heck does he want that from me?", but I gave it to him anyway.

Now, the question is - is he an alcoholic any way, or is this normal?

I wouldn't read too much into it, if he is sad he probably needs a friend to hang with. Or he is broke and needs someone to sponsor his hobby

Is this a riddle?

Answer is yes, he is a friend from the alcohol support group, and you made him relapse.

Your friend has dipsomania, can be fun occasionally.

Other than that, men dont talk about alcohol, they pick up the pieces with valor, itís called a hangover.

Yeah, but that's not the point. The point is that he wants my stuff.
I can only imagine what he does with my rakija when the night comes.

Also, it seems that Minion might be right here.

Guy's a leech. That's certain. next time he comes, bash his head in with an empty bottle and tell him to sod off. Although, to avoid troubles with the law, just try telling him to sod off, and make sure he throws the first punch if things get hot.

I've had a classmate like this in trade school. basically would came in hungover as bleep and would be like "hey guys, let's buy some beers together", which when translated from gopnik meant "buy me beer, I'm gonna die and I'm broke as bleep, because I'm a dumb gopnik motherbleeper who violates his probation 24/7".

But besides that, good times were had there, plenty of booze.
during our masonry, or should I say bricklaying training, we'd often buy a russian quart (0.7l) of vodka, would drink it, then bury the evidence into a bin of lime plaster that we weren't using, often at the other end of the masonry workshop.
During the months of practice in actual work environment, which included dorm renovation of the school, our practice supervisor would  drink with us. yes, you've read that right. He'd hand one of us a 20, and send the lucky one off to get some beers. During the two year stint there, we've grown bold. Not too bold mind you, but we had a 2 liter of sprite spiked with vodka during work on site. 3 parts sprite, 1 part vodka. Yeah, sober construction workers are rarer than unicorns.


My early 20s were spent drinking JD and Guinness by the truckload. good times, although, better bourbons were discovered later on. At least from the ones we get here. Wild Turkey, Maker's Mark. Delicious. no need to water down with fruit smoothies, like some certain individuals do.
Although Jameson's Caskmates and Arbelour 8 are my fav whiskeys, as they don't break my bank, as for example Lagavulin 16 would.

Has anybody gotten the reference yet?!  This is a Men Talk About Girls thread parody.  The idea was too good to pass up and I thought it could work out if I replaced key words and phrases from the original.  

But yeah, there really was a lot of drinking for me last week.  Friday night I organized a small gathering in my apartment and I had some rakija of unknown origin and quality to spare along with some wine for those who can't handle a real drink.  One of them was decent-ish, one was good, but the third one was like rat poison... only ten times worse.  We drank it all.  
There was also a jailbait present, and don't ask me how she'd gotten there, I still don't know.  Luckily there weren't any illegal acts - at least not that I'm aware of...

...My hands are clean, I say!

Lol, I got the reference on the title, of course, (everybody who was around those days must have) but since I donít remember your first post from five or six years ago, didnt realize the content was also complete parody.

Of course I remember the topic and it was a parody of it, but definitely can't remember any lines from it

Story time!

First time I decided to try Pelinkovac was a few days before a friend's birthday party last year.  Because I couldn't make it for the party, I decided to visit him earlier and I bought him a bottle of Pelinkovac as a present; it's his favorite drink, so I thought I couldn't go wrong with it.  Believe it or not, he didn't have any alcohol in his flat that night, so the only thing we had to drink was the said Pelinkovac, and both of us were too lazy to go and get anything else.  Also, we couldn't agree on a drink - I'd be all for Vodka, but he doesn't like it, just like I don't like beer, which he suggested.  Pelinkovac it is then, we decided.  
So, the first time I drank it was pretty much alright except the first few sips which were too invasive for my tastebuds.  Bitterness I can handle normally, but sweetness not so much.  Anyway, after I got accustomed to the mixed flavors it went down easily and the bottle was empty by the time I had to catch the last bus to get back to my dorm.  The next morning was far from spectacular for me, though, and the hangover was extreme.  Luckily I had no lectures that day.

Well, some time after the said events, I decided to go for Pelinkovac again, only this time I bought a different brand.  This time around I was more confident as I had my previous experience with it and it turned out reasonably well minus the hangover part.  My overconfidence led me to down a full glass without a second thought...  It was horrible, nay, worse than horrible, absolutely abhorrent, and I'm saying that because even my friend who is well accustomed to Pelinkovac couldn't stand it.  We tried everything to make it go easier, but in the end the drink won the fight.  Its half-empty bottle sat untouched for months.  None were brave to try their luck with it.  Legend has it that you can still hear its laughter when the full moon comes.

I have never dared to drink Pelinkovac again.
