Passing Out Parade

Forsaking The 'High' Life

A Romanian man has lodged an official complaint after he got drunk on a single can of beer. Iancu Boroi bought the beer at a local supermarket in Arges in southern Romania but was so drunk after just one can that he nearly passed out. He said: "It is ridiculous to think one can of beer can get me so drunk. He has written to Romania's Consumer Protection Office, demanding compensation.

FOOTNOTE: No can do.

How much alcohol is in a can of beer in Romania? Here in the States, a can of beer has 6% alcohol. If my wife could get past the taste, one can would put her under the table. Neither of us are drinkers of any regularity, maybe a wine cooler every once in awhile.

Only thing one can of beer would do for me is send me to the restroom faster. As the saying goes, you don't buy beer, you rent it.

thanks for your visit from down-under.
I don't think any consumers would have a problem with one can here in fact I'm sure many would LOVE it.

Depends on the size of the can...was it a can or a keg?

is this guy serious? lol

74wix-women have more body fat than men, probably why she would get drunk off of beer faster. but in general, the more body fat, the quicker you'll get drunk. alcohol converts to fat (hence, the beer belly lol). but one can? it had to have a poo-load of alcohol to get him drunk.

shoot, my legs start to go a little weak/numb just taking nyquil lol yes, i have LOTS of body fat lol

I wonder what kind of compensation he's seeking. No doubt he'll keep them .. ummm.. hopping until it's resolved. ;)

I hope he wasn't drinking on the job. I'd hate to see him get canned.

I think I'd be writing asking for a bigger supply! Or if it is on "tap".

Untapped market there! (get it? untapped?)
I know I know...

One whole can of beer sends me into a giggling fit. Wonder if that is enough reason to sue? ;-)
