Favorite Drunk?

The greatest drunk on earth? Modern Drunkard thinks it knows: "You won't find it in the Guinness Book of World Records, but Andre the Giant holds the world record for the largest number of beers consumed in a single sitting. These were standard 12-ounce bottles of beer, nothing fancy, but during a six-hour period Andre drank 119 of them." It also says he drank 7,000 calories of booze per day.


That's way more than the 50-60 Wade Boggs supposedly drank on the day of a west coast flight. Though Andre the Giant was probably about 18 inches and 200 pounds heavier than Boggs.
