The Rusty Nail just wants to be a drink that you’ll…

Okay, you have all heard the “Gained the COVID-19” line every time you finally see someone in person and their ass is in the process of upsizing their meeting-quality sweatpants. Besides the extra tonnage, there is more stuff we will be able to blame on this virus-based shitstorm. Some of it takes preparation though, so… you’re welcome.

You remember when your liquor cabinet held only the standard bottles of cheap vodka, margarita-night tequila, and that weird green bottle in the back that some asshole left at your house in 2012.

But now… you have taken advantage of all those alcohol…

Where does "Rocky Style" rank (raw, in a glass, after a workout)? Asking for a friend. Hilarious and informative as always.

To whom it may concern,

We recently received your application to officially join the Bailey Ball Regional Recreational Players Association (BBRRPA). We’ve got to say that spelling it out in alphabet blocks took a special kind of dedication, but your play of the game must be the committee’s prime consideration in your application.

For instance, on the twenty-sixth toss of last Tuesday’s pre-nap match, you completely failed to place the ball in an entirely catchable position per rule curvy-number. And then almost immediately after that unforced error, you actually hit Bailey in the forehead with the ball which, frankly, should…
