Ah yes, the beer goggles! You just reminded me of one of the greatest Simpsons episodes ever, the one in which they visited Duff Gardens. At one point they go into the gift shop, and Bart picks up a set of authentic beer goggles ("See the world as a drunk sees it!"). He puts them on and looks at his hideous aunt Patty or aunt Selma and sees a voluptuous woman cooing, "Oooh, you're charming the pants off me!" Then he takes them off and hears Patty/Selma saying, "I said, Bart, take off those damn glasses!"

How about "WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may make you think you can play the Ukulele" See the blog I just posted "It's hard to be in a bad mood while you're playing the ukulele!" (http://bit.ly/pPgDy4)

Max, you will remember Andy Capp cartoons? In one, the vicar is giving Andy one of his regular sermons about the demon drink. "And look at poor Fred" says the vicar. "He fell into the canal on the way home from the pub." Andy replies "But vicar, Fred drowned, didn't he?" "Yes...??" says the vicar. "Well it was demon water did for the poor bloke then! says Andy. Then there's the one about women always seeming prettier when seen thru the bottom of a beer glass. "Beer goggles" the effect is called.
