Ministry of Silly Walks - New Candidate

So I went out this morning to buy me some more beer at the local convenience store, but I was having a little problem with my motor skills.  What's a fall-down drunk to do?

Unfortunately the entire incident was caught on some security cameras.

Seriously, I've watched this about 167 times now and (just like The Exorcist) it keeps getting funnier single time I see it!!!

Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Looks like Slyde on a girl-drink bender to me.

This reminds me ofr the true story of Shane McGowan being carried INTO a pub!

The Ministry of Silly Walks derives from an old style British comedian called Max Wall btw. I blogged on him a while ago...

Wabbit - Ah...Shane McGowan. A legend, an absolute legend!

Dr Zibbs said...

CLASSIC. I'm tweeting to this post right now. The world must see this.

I spent many an evening in the company of Mr McGowan. He was an absoloute character of the highest order, but the man could sing up a storm whenever he could stand.

Great clip Mr Earl, it brings a whole new meaning to the term 'legless'.

Avitable said...

It's so ludicrous that it almost seems like it's a Jackass-style prank.

I don't know if this is real or not, but that moment where he's sitting down and you can tell he's thinking "you know what, getting up is HARRRRD... damn... I might just... hmmm... stay here...." - that is a moment I am intimately familiar with.

I like how he never lets go of the beer, even to try and get back up to continue walking.

The important part of this video is that he did NOT let go of the beer while trying not to fall off the face of the earth. That's dedication.

I have *NEVER* been that wasted. And tried to buy more beer. I think.

What is our society coming to, that noone came to his assistance....we are just cruel.

Mik said...

I want some of what he had.

I wonder if he would have made it to the register with his beer would they have sold it to him?

Mrs. Hall said...

I hate to be the downer here but I don't think that guy is drunk. i sense something neurological. especially when he falls in front of the fridge.

gah. maybe i need to be around more drunk people versus ms/parkinsons/tbi people more.


mrs. hall out

a classic.
i mean we have the giants saints coming up.
and someone has to go on a beer run.
and that someone is not me.

Verdant Earl said...

Zibbs - ah, the evil use of Twitter. ;)

Jimmy - he was a mess, but my kind of mess.

Avitable - Gia is convinced it's fake.

Britt - that's my favorite part too!

Marty - he was certainly determined.

liv2fly - Heya! Ya gotta have priorities! ;)

Sybil - I'm ashamed to admit that I probably have been that wasted. In college. A long time ago.

Kaylen - but a few folks did. Apparently they helped him up.

Mik - I don't want any of what he had.

Holly - I thought of that too, but I dunno. He might be a mix of the two.

Duder - Go Saints! I'm from NY, but I hate the Giants!

well then, congrats earl. we played a stinker.

Paticus said...

I'm not 100% it's not a fake. If it is fake, the guy is really good. I think my favorite thing is that they just steer the guy back outside."Good luck to ya, pal"

Everyone knows if it takes you less than 30 minutes to get back up after you fall down, then you're good for a couple more beers.
