I saw his happy smile as he drank and I instantly went to a 2004 George Carlin quote I once heard. “I think the warning labels on alcoholic beverages are too bland. They should be more vivid. Here is one I would suggest: "Alcohol will turn you into the same asshole your father was.” ― George Carlin
George Carlin is one of those comedians who made sense in what he said from time to time, you just have to know when to laugh and when to listen. Carlin, who I liked because of a record my parents had where he rattled through the seven dirty words, died at age 71 in 2008. As some recall, Carlin was known to have an addiction to alcohol and Vicodin.
