A lot of people are reported to have gathered up many of those fish and placed them in a roaster pan. Then, after some cooking, threw the fish away and drank the gravy.

If the spilled bourbon hadn't killed them the hangovers would have.

Proof that fish have no self-restraint.

Please open your baskets.
You have:

- Bourbon
= Fish

You have 1 minute.

In 1854, after 15 years of trying, Sam Houston's wife convinced him to be baptized in the river. Afterwards, a reporter asked Sam, a notorious drinker, if he felt like his sins really had been washed away.

He replied, "I sure hope so. But if they have, Lord help the fish down below."

I don't know that I'd die happy drowning in Jim Beam. Jameson's, maybe. Or like the old letter from the Irish mother to her distant son, "I regret to inform you that your father passed away from falling in the vat while working at the Guinness plant. Six men tried to save him, but he fought them off bravely."
