For only $3 a night, Colin White would rent out one of the drunks from his pub to liven up a party.

White explains that when people are worried about their parties getting off to a slow start, they call up and say: "Oh, Mr. White, I wonder whether you could send us around a drunk about 8:30 p.m.?"

So his employees could legitimately claim to be professional drunks.
