Here’s one of my favorite characters. Gus, better known as ‘guzzlin’ Gus, the town drunk. He’s a soft-spoken guy in his late 40’s, getting fat and going bald.
He drinks like a fish, breath smells bad enough to make a horse commit suicide and he thinks he knows it all. Can’t tell him crap! The whole town tries to love this alcoholic, but only out of pity! He’ll always try to out talk you, If not too drunk. All you can do at this point is hold your breath for as long as you can, pretend you’re into what he’s saying and hope like hell he’ll shut the hell up.
VITAL STATISTICS – Age: 29 to 62,
Height: 5’5″ to 5’11”
Weight: 13 cases
OCCUPATION – If he stays sober enough, you ladies might find him working as a forklift driver, (..just don’t stand too close or you’ll get killed.) You may also find this type cleaning up school buses.
But more than likely, he’ll just be on government assistance collecting his check.
FAVORITE FOODS –
Ladies, this drunk enjoys feasting on Tacos smothered in hot wine sauce, steamed corn with stale Rye bread and garlic strips.
For a midnight snack, he’ll invite you over to have a large dripping slice of bourbon pie topped with Cool Whip.
FAVORITE DRINKS –
He’s not choosey at all. He’ll drink you under the table. Whatever alcohol beverage the store clerk will sell him is just fine.
When you’re at his place, just don’t try to out drink him. (..this really pisses him off.)
FAVORITE MUSIC – Prepare your ears for an evening of ‘Bud Light’ commercial jingles, all Country & Western songs, and anything played down at the local pub or the neighborhood gin joint.
FAVORITE MOVIES/TV SHOWS – Your night of enjoyable viewing with him will include ‘Old Cheers’ reruns and the movie ‘Arthur’.
He also enjoy watching past taped film footage of Alcoholics Anonymous rap sessions. (..he has a very LARGE collection and he just knows you’ll get a kick out of it.)
FAVORITE SPORTS/HOBBIES – Football, drinkin’, belchin’ and fartin’ (..but not necessarily in that order.) Do you think you can keep up?
TYPE OF CAR – When a little sober, (..which is very rare) he may attempt to drive his old Chevy van. But anytime you spot this hunk of junk parked in some remote area, you can bet your last dollar he’s inside sleeping one off.
LAST BOOK – “Kinzie report—-BEER: The New Aphrodisiac“ written by Taste Buds; Inc. (..in collaboration with Kinzie, of course).
TURN-ON’S – Easy twist-off beer bottle caps, Super Bowl Sunday with his buddies treating him to free booze and shiny new beer delivery trucks stocked with suds.
TURN-OFF’S – Losing his sense of taste and smell when sick. He also hates warm beer, missing liquor sales and you drinking more than him.
SECRET FANTASY – He dreams of someday being accidentally locked inside a beer distillery for a whole weekend without being discovered.
ASTROLOGICAL – Taurus
PERSONALITY – A connoisseur from way back in the day, this lush really does know his suds.
Along with his huge belly, he’ll more than likely be of mixed heritage, very lazy and think he knows it all. (..just ask him anything, and regardless if he know the answer or not, he’ll argue you down until you agree.)
In later years, he may suffer from a bad case of stiff finger joints due to opening so many pop-top beer cans and twist off bottle caps.
IDEAL WOMAN – She must be under 28, a little chunky and have bucked teeth. This way, whenever he can’t locate the bottle opener, he can just turn to her and say; ” Honey, open wide!”
WHERE TO MEET – Ladies, you’ll run into these types standing in lottery lines, at the bowling alley, the old neighborhood bar or puking his guts out in someone’s backyard.
GOAL – To one day win some type of contest where first prize would be a free case of beer every week for 24 months.
RATING – 4.7…..At the beginning ladies, he could start off being a good provider for your children. But later in the relationship, you’ll probably get dumped for a big-breasted barmaid; which may be all for the better.
You would only tire yourself out from the constant litter of beer cans strewn about the house. (..one messy deal.)
But there’s a good bet he could be a candidate for ‘Customer of the Year’ named by the local aluminum recycling center.
