Why do we do this? I won't speak for anyone else. I think I have enough experience on the subject to speak on my own behalf. So if anyone disagrees with anything I say here, let me know.
And one thing I can tell you is, they all taste like shit. Why the hell would I want to take 2 or more ounces of pure whisky and chug it? It's stupid! It's unenjoyable and expensive! I've done enough of these to sink a ship and empty my wallet.
But despite my argument against doing this, I WILL do it again. I don't want to. But I can see it happen. Half pissed, leaning against the bar, laughing too loud at my own jokes (that I probably wouldn't even get the next morning), then I hear it. Out of the darkness some idiot yells... SHOTS? So I, being the wisest of them all, think long and hard about the consequences. Weigh the pros and cons. Then in my most profound intellectual voice, I clear my throat and announce..... FUCK YEAH! LINE EM' UP BITCHES! I probably won't get a hangover THIS time.
