Warning You Off From a Bad Idea

Look, I warned you, this is NOT the best of plans on your part. Get Harper to drink for Ireland and you may stand a chance. Police Code for "Officer Drunk" is stll "Logan" on the channels, you know. And besides, I was supposed to ask if I could go.

A cautionary tale:

The Texan
A Texan walks into a pub in Ireland and clears his voice to the crowd of drinkers. He says, "I hear you Irish are a bunch of hard drinkers. I'll give $500 American dollars to anybody in here who can drink 10 pints of Guinness back-to-back."

The room is quiet and no one takes up the Texan's offer. One man even leaves.

Thirty minutes later the same gentleman who left shows back up and taps the Texan on the shoulder. "Is your bet still good?" asks the Irishman. The Texan says "Yup" and asks the bartender to line up 10 pints of Guinness. Immediately the Irishman tears into all 10 of the pint glasses, drinking them all back-to-back.

The other pub patrons cheer as the Texan sits in amazement. The Texan gives the Irishman the $500 and says, "If ya don't mind me askin', where did you go for that 30 minutes you were gone?" The Irishman replies, "Oh...I had to go to the pub down the street to see if I could do it first."
 

And in case you still feel like trying it, you'll need this.

I still think it's all bluster, Detective.

Let's see if anyone else wants in on this little competition, eh?
