  17. Talking Russian Boozers

    Russian scientists developed a new pill that prolongs drunkenness. It's the scentific breakthrough of the century but watch out for moaning publicans and bar owners. "Doctor, doctor, I have a problem, I have been feeling a little sober lately". Don't worry I have a pill.
