“A couple bartenders came in one morning and one of them, the owner of a bar, said he could do the milk drinking contest—the one where you attempt to drink a gallon of milk in one hour and hold it down for 10 minutes after you finish. … Everyone was putting a lot of money on it; it ended up being a $2,000 bet. He just pounded down the milk, [but when] he had eight minutes to go, he started pacing around the bar. He was a big guy and you could just tell he was feeling it; he was making all these noises and wasn’t looking good. It finally caught up to him and he headed toward a trash can that was next to an ATM, but he missed the trash can and puked all over the ATM.”
