The Mark Trail Drinking Game
Just when you didn't think there were enough drinking games in the world, along comes one you can play every day if you subscribe to a newspaper. On top of that, you can use your Sunday morning coffee for a chaser while you play!
For those not familiar, Mark Trail is a comic strip in which nothing much ever seems to happen; the star being a soft-spoken, veteran outdoorsman bent on preserving our natural resources — and lulling us into peaceful slumber. But it must be doing something right; Mark Trail has been around since 1946, appears in 175 newspapers and has 23 million readers worldwide. But the artist, Jack Elrod, is either very near-sighted or genuinely thinks that animals can talk. So grab your local comics section, a bottle of your favorite adult beverage, and, each time an animal appears to be saying something, take a shot. You’ll be a hopeless drunk by Labor Day.
Plus, if you really want to get a jump on being hammered you can scroll through a whole week's worth of comics at King Features. Bottoms up!
