The Reader’s Drinking Game

Image

“Drink what you know, drink regularly rather than in binges, avoid needlessly exotic booze, and leave the table while you can still stand.”

Jezebel writes that the rules for writing are similar to those for drinking. Since the only thing we like more than drinking is reading and writing, we find their drinking games for some of our favorite authors hilarious.

Thomas Pynchon: Drink every time someone has a stupid name, like “Eigenvalue.”

David Foster Wallace: Drink every time a sentence has three or more conjunctions.

William Faulkner: Every time a sentence goes on for more than a page, drink the entire bottle. Then make out with your sister.
