    Had to look this up online, but here goes, by way of announcement:

    'DOWN THE DRAIN (The twelve bottles of whisky)

    I had twelve bottles of whiskey in my cellar, and my wife told me to empty the contents of each and every bottle down the sink - or else! So, I said I would and proceeded with the unpleasant task. I withdrew the cork from the first bottle and poured the contents down the sink, with the exception of one glass, which I drank. I extracted the cork from the second bottle and did likewise with the exception of one glass, which I drank. I pulled the cork from the third bottle and poured the whiskey down the sink, with the exception of one glass, which I drank. I then withdrew the cork from the fourth sink and poured the bottle down the glass, which I drank. I pulled the bottle from the cork of the next and drank one sink out of it and threw the rest down the glass. I pulled the sink out of the next glass and poured the cork from the bottle. Then I corked the sink with the glass, bottled the drink and drank the pour.
    When I had everything emptied I steadied the house with one hand, counted the bottles, corks, glasses and sinks with the other, which were twenty-nine. To make sure I counted them again, when they came to seventy-four. And as the house came by, I counted them again, and finally I had all the houses and bottles and corks and sinks and glasses counted, except one house and one cork, which l drank.'

    (I think this also goes by the name of 'The Tall Tale' - but I found it marked 'anonymous' ... YMMV, definitely.)

    My much more moderate version of this has to wait a bit, but I'll post an image eventually ...

    Thanks for the replies.
    Never heart of these drinks before.
    What alcoholic % do they have?

    The ones I posted, you really don't want. I was being slightly facetious.
