It's true alcoholics often pass out in wagons. According to historians it's a practice that dates back to pioneer days. I'm not much for fancy book-learnin' but I am inclined to listen people with actual paper degrees that you can frame and put on a wall in your tastefully decorated study. My degree was just a browser pop-up.

This is an important lesson people. The bartender's willingness to listen to you bitch about your problems is directly proportional to the amount of money you spend. It's an unwritten code. Disregard at your peril.

Millions of people in the US are familiar with the witty and enduring magic that is The Always Overserved Cartoon Blog, but what many of our loyal American fans are not aware of is that your favorite blog of all time (Always Overserved) has a huge international following as well. Our hilarious and thought-provoking daily cartoons are translated into all of the languages we're aware of (i.e. four) and posted around the world on our international affiliate sites in far-flung countries you have probably never even noticed on the map (i.e. Canada).
When we adapt our captivating daily cartoons for these lucky recipients across the planet we often have to go beyond a mere translation and actually alter the cartoon itself to make sure that the indelible wit and charm our readers have come to expect is intact and reaching maximum comedic impact.
With all that said, we thought it might be fun to share with our English-speaking audience one of these altered cartoons, to see if you the reader can spot the subtle, yet crucial changes made to this cartoon classic to imbue it with the appropriate laugh-out-loud hystericallity for our valued readers in French-speaking countries (i.e. France and Haiti).
Take a look at the adapted version of yesterday's brilliant offering and see if you can find the small cultural tweaks we made for our friends in France. Count the changes and see if you notice them all!
Did you spot them? That's right, there are TWO.
1) The man on the left is smoking a non-filtered cigarette, the tobacco product of choice for discerning lung-cancer enthusiasts across Europe.
2) The man on the right is thinking about sleeping with your wife and/or mother.
How close were you? Don't worry if you didn't spot them, you'll have another chance in the future when we post a translated cartoon from our German affiliate (hint: look for the lederhosen).
Thanks for playing and please remember to visit us back here every weekday for a new and side-splittingly funny cartoon, only from the (bourbon-altered) minds at Always Overserved Blog!
Beaucoup trop arrosé!

Don't actually try this at home. Experts have informed me that it could cause nausea and/or death. Although I checked into it further and apparently ths is the exact recipe for Franzia Merlot. For the Franzia Shiraz they add chalk dust to round off the sweetness.
