How come no one told me there's something called "Drunk History" or that it's absolutly hilarious?
So much Internet. So little time.
I've been spending way too much effort on newspaper websites and Kennedy assassination blogs and not enough with Funny Or Die's "Drunk History". I didn't know it existed until I saw a story Monday morning touting the fact that it's becoming part of Comedy Central's line-up starting Tuesday night at nine.
The premise, as I understand it, is thus: get someone drunk and then have them tell a story from our nation's past. As they do so, famous actors/actresses play the scenes out, word for boozy word. And hiccup. Or burp. Or puke.
I didn't see this entire episode, but here is the wined-up version of Frederick Douglass' meeting with Abraham Lincoln with Will Farrell and Don Cheadle, among others. It's not safe for work and does contain some language that may make you blush/squirm/recoil in horror. As for me, I laughed my can off.
