How to Party Like an American

I don't want to harsh on the USA so soon after the 4th of July, but this is exactly what people mean when they talk about how the lower drinking age and wine culture in Europe means they have a much more mature attitude about drinking. The French might give their kids wine at dinner, but they don't binge drink. Us Americans, we package wine in a box by the liter, and then still can't get it fast enough, so we have to squeeze it straight out of the bag into our mouths. Croissandwich, anyone?

This photo is of our nation's brightest law students at a party. Sorry to be the one to break it to you, Francois, but these colors DO NOT RUN.

(Thanks for the photo, Richard)

If you're feeling a little ashamed of our nation's juvenile and troubled relationship with alcohol, please check out It's a site of all party pictures from Hungarian nightclubs, where it looks like a nightmarish version of Jersey shore guidos.

Maybe that's not wine.. Maybe it's pee? It looks about the colour. Maybe he had a long drive to his festivities, felt a bit parched at the end of his all night drive.. Et voila.

Argyle is a very forgiving pattern, and is a wise choice for binge drinking as well as the resultant bail hearing the next day.

The sweater alone is priceless. Even better is the fact that his chosen vehicle for his beverage makes it look like he's drinking a bag of piss.
