Drunk Paul may only be funny to me, but I’m having a great time.

I just googled Attempts On Her Life, just to know if it's something that actually exists.
Because I figured there was a distinct possibility that Drunk Paul was just making all this up on the spot.

Some of the more "out there" plays do sound like someone just made them up while drunk, honestly!

"The whole play is about two dudes waiting for the titular character... and he never comes!"

What a rip off!

It's not really a secret that many musicians and authors use alcohol, marijuana and other recreational substances, is it? I've known plenty of both to use chemical aid to help them sit down on their writing throne, and pinch off a first draft. A lot of them would grunt, struggle, and strain themselves excessively, and then still fail to get anything out at all, without resorting to it.

(The fecal association implied in my language choice there is an intentional commentary on the typical nature and quality of first drafts made with such aid.)

Could be worse. Conversations with a friend of mine when he's drunk always seem to come back around to his competitive hog-breeding days.

You're not wrong, though now I do know more about livestock castration than I would like.

I've been in Jon's position with regards to that conversation between Paul and Ken entirely too many times. It's can be much worse when they're both sober, and they catch on that I'm not impressed with their confused babble about topics they don't understand.

Well, at least he admits he lost his point up his own arse. That's far less obnoxious than the alternative.

Yeah I fear I've been on the other side of that, one of the reasons I don't drink that much anymore. I rant about my musical hot takes enough when I'm sober, I don't need to inflict my drunk hot takes on my poor friends!

Musical "hot takes" aren't so bad actually, unless you're being awful just for shits and giggles. It gets bad when people start rambling about how deep things are that are honestly an inkblot test level of shallow, or if the level of vocabulary far exceeds the level of the content.

Speaking of, here's a flaw that's poorly represented in your gallery of rogues: Where are the people who try to fake being smart by using unnecessarily big words? Those are near the top of the list of reasons I stayed in academia exactly as long as I needed for my Bachelor level papers, and not a second longer. (Anyone who uses the word, "colloquy," without genuine need gets the stink-eye. Anyone who uses, "palaver," at all needs to be nuked from orbit, with a follow up barrage to make sure.)

It's been 4 strips now that the turtleneck person in the background seems to have fallen in a state of boredom so dismal they no longer have the strength to make up a "fresh air" excuse...
