Drunk Men Think They’re Hot, and Other Facts (Study)


An explosive new study out of Australia is showing that drunk men think they’re more good-looking than they actually are. We’ve seen this phenomenon in action at every single social gathering we’ve attended, ever. The ones that involve alcohol, that is. Which is most of them.

News. This is newsy, newsy news.

Interestingly, only 3 percent of women think drunk men are attractive. No way! I thought everyone liked sweaty, mouth-breathing guys clutching beers and staring at your chest.

Here are some other new, relevant facts:

  • It’s Saturday.
  • When doused in rum, ponytails become crunchy.
  • It’s possible to make a mermaid out of snow.
  • Slush is gross.
  • Intern Myles has the most epic winter boots ever.

But really though, this might be one of the most unnecessary studies we’ve seen in a while. What’s next? “Women Think They’re More Attractive When Drunk”? Ha ha.
