Two Manhattan pet stores have policies against buying puppies while drunk

Two pet stores on Christopher Street in Manhattan have to watch out for drunk people coming in from local bars, ready to buy puppies.

Christopher Street’s Citipups also forbids intoxicated customers from purchasing puppies after watching too many booze-fueled purchases go bad.

Moritz recalled selling a Chihuahua some years ago to a woman she thought might have been drunk, only to have the dog returned the next day — in a near-dead state.

“We took it to the vet and he found five pills in the dog’s stomach,” she said. “It almost overdosed.”

The Chihuahua’s stomach was pumped, and it survived.

Groucho Marx had a nice evening

A letter of note from Groucho Marx:

My De Soto was whisked away from the front of the theatre so swiftly that I arrived at Romanoff’s in a Buick. There I rapidly got drunk, danced with Audrey Hepburn, looked down (and up) Jayne Mansfield’s knockers, had a fine lobster dinner and spent a good half hour rubbing someone’s legs under the table …. which, on investigation, turned out to be my wife’s.

Painting lost by drunk guy found on the street

Maybe he was telling the truth all along. James Hagerty was helping his friends sell a painting, but got drunk and lost it. His story sounded suspicious, but then one of the painting’s owners was indicted for fraud. Which maybe has something to do with it, but maybe not because the painting was found by a doorman. It was sitting outside his building.

Shit gets real when diplomats get drunk

At a UN retreat, a Chinese diplomat named Sha Zukang got drunk and gave an overly honest toast, singling out Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

“I know you never liked me Mr. Secretary-General — well, I never liked you, either,” Sha told Ban at a dinner attended by the U.N.’s top brass, according to a senior U.N. official who attended the event. “I didn’t want to come to New York. It was the last thing I wanted to do. But I’ve come to love the U.N. and I’m coming to admire some things about you.”

He also confessed he didn’t like one Bob Orr because “he’s an American and I really don’t like Americans”.

Drunk Parrots

Some rainbow lorikeets in Australia seem to get drunk every year at the end of the rainy season. It might be from eating overripe and fermented fruit.
