Not that any of us would ever exhibit such unseemly social transgressions, nor would any of us (or, of course, any of you) deign to consort with anyone who would ever even approach same, but as a matter of etiquette, it is generally not a bad idea for Gallant to know what Goofus is up to, and in that light, I present InventorSpot's list of the Six Stages of Drunkenness, as depicted in Japanese cellphone charms.
In the interests of completeness, and so you can recognize them in the boor across the room and rehearse your typical urbanenesses to your compatriots at the smart end of the bar, they are as follows:
- Stage 1 - The Lecturing Drunk
- Stage 2 - The Uninhibited Drunk (shown above)
- Stage 3 - The Angry Drunk
- Stage 4 - The Morose Drunk
- Stage 5 - The Barfing Drunk
- Stage 6 - The Unconscious Drunk
I merely pass this link on as a public service, so that you may better recognize the evil that resides within each and every one of us, and how it blossoms and wreaks sweet, luscious, interesting, truth-revealing havoc upon the world when one's guard is let down for even a minute. In the words of a formerly very wise man: every single one of us, the devil inside.
Also, the cellphone charms are truly delightful.
