A Cardigan native was brought before a magistrate and charged with criminal damage after he kicked in a charity shop window. John Michael Jones admitted to drinking seven cans of lager and ten Jack Daniels at a party before the incident occurred. The magistrate was unimpressed by Mr. Jones’ drinking prowess and levied various fines against him.
Upon leaving the court the judge gave him some good advice:
Beware the evil drink.
Caroline Whitehead, Magistrate, Cardigan
This story brings up a couple of thoughts to mind. First and foremost, clearly anyone who drinks seven lagers and ten Jack Daniels in a sitting probably has a drinking problem and should consider quitting. Anyone who goes a step further and does violence and/or inflicts criminal damage on public property definitely does have a drinking problem. It wasn’t the drink that made this poor sod do it, it was his own poor choices.
The second thought is the Jack Daniels. Why do these drunken fools always drink Jack Daniels prior to making asses of themselves? Jack deserves better. It is subtle, tasty whiskey. These dumb-asses who insist on giving it a bad name with their reckless drinking should find something else to imbibe prior to engaging in their senseless acts of random stupidity. Maybe bathtub gin or homemade potato vodka. Quit abusing good liquor!
