Praise for the Beer Goggles

From Urban Dictionary:

Beer goggles is a slang term for a phenomenon in which consumption of alcohol lowers sexual inhibitions to the point that very little or no discretion is used when approaching or choosing sexual partners. It can also refer to literal goggle-like devices used to distort vision to simulate the effects of drunkenness.

So who among us hasn't looked across the room towards closing wondering if you were going to take that special lady with the fresh stitches in her forehead home for the night and possibly marry her?

Anyone else?


OK, so only me huh? Well let it be known that there has been more than one evening where the beer goggles were on and making a huge difference. Especially during those crazy days of port visits in exotic countries while in the Navy. This collection of pictures helps to illustrate the effect. Please keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times, if the effect becomes too distorting, just look down.

Even worse than the beer goggles is it's insidious older brother, Tequila!

But what's the worse than can happen while under the influence?

Or instead of bad decisions, just... wait what was I saying?

And as a reward for hanging in there through this mess, here is a great ad for the Gorilla Gripper. Stay with it until the end...


  1. Beer goggles have gotten me through many a lonely night. Thank God I can get so many people to drink beer.

  2. There is a reason I stay at home and drink.


  3. hahahaha... thanks for the chuckles this morning!!

  4. Those are freaking FANTASTIC. Exept I kinda want that mail order bride... it's so deliciously fugly!

  5. See? EXACTLY! This is why I don't drink! I know I would see EVERYBODY as a hottie, and that can't lead me anywhere good.

  6. I'm just glad I'm safely married as I get embarrassingly affectionate after a few drinks. In fact, I'm inclined to tell total strangers I love them when I'm sober.

  7. Dang...I want one of those...gorilla grippers.

    Thanks for the laugh,


  8. Beer goggles, oh my yes. It's been a while, but I remember waking up and thinking, "What in the hell was I thinking!?"

  9. Beer - helping ugly men and women get laid for 500 years.

  10. I feel like I'm in the Beer Google Museum. I can't wait to be prettier in The Rose-Colored Lounge.

  11. Umm, sorry but those beer goggles help women too!!!

    Oh yes they do...

  12. all I can hear is a comment by the prezzy-dent of the local Lions Club saying, in his little 80-year-old-man voice, "sometimes when I don't wanna see anybody, I just take my glasses off."
