Drinking excuses: From 5 reasons to the buffalo theory
On my bar at home I keep on the wall this verse by Dr. Henry Aldrich that was written in the 17th century: If all be true that I do think/There are five reasons why we should drink/Good wine, a friend, or being dry/Or lest we should be bye and bye/Or any other reason why.

Better watch out, or he'll break your jaw,

For this man Conner is the judge of law.
