    BTW: the other “Paul Recommends” item I never got around to in this podcast was Louis CK’s series “Louie” on FX. It’s dark, but hilarious and smart.

    Paul.

    I will avoid pontificating about drunk animals except to say it is by no means limited to mammals; eating fermented fruit results in many comedy routines starring wildlife. No opinion on cats, though.

    I must say I’m totally with Storm on the high vs. drunk issue. Although many of my acquaintance find it enjoyable, in my opinion being high feels like brain damage.

    I’ve seen a cat that got drunk once….twice infact…
    One Christmas we made a ham that was basted with… some sort of alcoholic beverage… :D and we gave it the leftovers… basically, it couldn’t get up onto sofa without falling off and it was afraid to jump.
    Similarly, at the following New Year, the cat started drinking some champagne,
    …It fell down the stairs and unfortunately had to be put down,

    Funnily enough, I’ve seen the same cat get drunk on two separate occasions. My housemate’s cat, Riddick, is quite the boozer and started very young. When he was about 6 months old, he got sloshed on the punch at our Halloween party (unsupervised kitten on the dining room table!) and mostly slept through the next three days. A couple years later, we were a little slow in cleaning up from our Fourth of July barbecue and discovered him with his whole head wedged into a Solo cup of beer. He didn’t throw up either time, though. Our boy can hold his liquor.

    Drunk over high any day, yes. I’ve never gotten high intentionally, but the contact high I contracted at the Family Values tour in college was only sort of pleasant for as long as it took to get from the Worcester Centrum to downtown Boston on the ride home.

    And Paul? As a fan of the entire Stargate franchise… Hey! :P
