I thought this was an ad for Alcoholics Anonymous.

I see that the theme for today is drinking. I used to buy the Schlitz "Tall Boy" for my serious drinking time - 24 ounces of uninterrupted drinking. Who had time to keep opening those wimpy 16 ounce cans of Budweiser?

So what did the ghosts die of? DUI? Cirrhosis of the liver? An untreated cut from opening a beer can with an old-school "church key"?

Perhaps they get more reaction from drunk people.

@Brian - Actually, the church keys weren't too easy to cut yourself with. Now the first pop tops with the tab that came off, those babies could lay a nice gash.
