The U.K.'s "Drunken Streets of Shame" on New Year's Eve

The Daily Mail's articles about Britain's binge drinking culture crack me up. Here's the latest. I wonder if the lass in the fourth picture put her eyebrows on before or after she commenced drinking.

This is probably the last installment before Ladies' Day at Aintree rolls around in April.

How warm is it in Newcastle at this time of year for the sad lass in red dressed like she's table-dancing in Ibiza in mid July?

It's Newcastle. They are stereotyped in the UK for going out partying in skimpy clothes without a coat no matter how cold it gets. Temperature in this case was reasonably warm for the time of year - probably about 5C/40F. E.g. no where near warm enough for that.

If we had known England was such a fun place, we'd never have separated from them 230 years go. Party on, Garth!

There was an actor on Telly a few nights ago lamenting what he sees in Britain's streets.

And they don't take advice to wear their coats. During the record cold snap a couple of years ago (or was it last year?) people were wearing clothes just as skimpy. One girl was passed out near a pile of snow and turning blue. I don't know if that was a photoshop effect. It must be frustrating to be a taxpayer and see NHS pounds poured into scraping drunks off the street on a weekly basis.

If Diogenes had wandered the streets of England looking for an attractive person rather than an honest one, he'd still be on foot in despair.

Can you blame them? Britian's a boring shithole little island. They've got nothing else to do but drown their sorrows.

Ah, yes, meanwhile our under- or overmedicated psychos shoot children. Much bettah!

One of the reasons why guys age so fast in the UK.

Look at the faces of guys in their 40s, they look 60 because of years of alcohol abuse.

Eh, it's Newcastle on NYE. That's like taking photos of college kids in Cancun during Spring Break and holding them up as representative of all Americans.

Dear God that girl's eyebrows though.

I can' remember if it was in an article or a tv show that I saw one of these young binge drinkers dressed in almost nothing and passed out in a pile of snow.

They have ambulances specifically for rounding up vomitting/passed out teens who need to be taken to the hospital.

The Daily Mail crack me up with this caption:

I've also noticed it among a lot of British actors. The guys I remember watching in their 20's as young actors are virtually unrecognizable when they hit middle-age.

The pet plant did make me laugh. I didn't even notice the eyebrows because I was so fascinated by the idea of taking a plant for a walk.

A friend in college uprooted and took a potted begonia from the outdoor courtyard at Fondue Fred on Telegraph in Berkeley many, many years ago. They used to have unlimited beer and wine options with their all-you-can-eat fondue. Walked off with it under her coat.
