booze poster

The arrival of December means it's time for the annual forget-the-year parties put on by companies across the nation.

These parties always involve five things:

1. the consumption of vast amounts of booze
2. the downing of large quantities of liquor
3. the guzzling of gallons of grog
4. the quaffing of lots of intoxicants
5. the drinking of alcohol

The train companies understandably get a bit nervous at this time of year, not wanting to have sensible passengers sit on vomit- or urine-soaked seats.

As a result, this poster has been plastered about the nation's carriages in the hope of persuading those the worse for wear to make it home before evacuating the contents of their stomachs, bladders and bowels.



Trouble is, if they’re that wasted, it's highly likely they won’t be able to read the poster.


This is how it looks under various states of inebriation:

Tipsy....




Drunk....




Hammered....




Utterly shitfaced....


There's no way in hell a shitfaced person will be able to read this.


This bloke didn't do it at home. Five minutes after this photo was taken, he did it on the train....




I was hoping to do it on the train too, until someone pointed out the poster to me. So then I decided to do it at home.

But when I got there, I soon realised that my landlord had stolen a march on me, putting up a poster of his own while I was out....



Not being able to do it at home, or on the train, I waddled to my nearest convenient convenience store and did it there instead.

My favourite part's the bloke with no eyeballs trying his best not to look.

A bit unnecessary, I would have thought.

Ha Ha Ha! I usually get off the train and do it at the platform. There is no sign about that.

I think the sign is also warning people to not lose their shoe.

Freaking Hilarious!!!

I encoutered one of these guys a few years back... it was late, he was stumbling around the car making funny faces and speaking incoherently. Every time the door of the train opened he would appear absolutely stunned and fail to make it out in time.

Wait, you think the "please do it at home" could be a euphemism? What makes you think that? The white liquid in the picture?

Eww, EM, go wash your mouth/keyboard out with soap. No wait, I don't mean because you did it at home...ugh..I give up.

This is hilarious. I am moving to Kobe in 38 days so your blog will come in handy. I will be back!

Well if people start doing it at home, maybe that'll do something about the baby rate...
