Man calls Chief Medical Officer after accidentally drinking more than four units of alcohol in a day

A MAN has called the UK’s Chief Medical Officer after accidentally drinking six alcohol units in a day to beg for urgent help. 

Nathan Muir of Hitchin accidentally downed the lethal cocktail when out with friends before realising he had exceeded recommended daily limits by 50 per cent and it was probably already too late for him.

He said: “We were talking about Solskjær’s appointment. I was distracted. I didn’t realise I’d been brought a third beer until I’d finished it. By then it was too late.

“I sank to the floor in terror, a blood alcohol level of a terrifying 75mg coursing through my veins. I saw the Chief Medical Officer’s advice on the bottle and, in desperation, Googled her number and called her.

“Sobbing, I told her ‘I’ve had six units of alcohol in one day. Tell me straight, doc. Am I going to make it?’

“She asked my BMI, general state of fitness and the medical history then told me to drink water, lie down and wait for the poison to leave my system. And I lived.

“I’m never taking that kind of risk with my health again. I’m going back on the spliff.”

Do you look fashionable or just a twat?

ARE people staring at you in the street because your edgy new jacket makes you look amazing or because you look fucking ridiculous? Here are some questions to ask yourself.

Do people go quiet when you walk into a room?

This is a hard one to call because they could either be struck dumb by your sartorial skill or shocked that anyone would choose to go out looking so stupid. If they start to giggle, that’s a bad sign.

Are you wearing knackered-looking clothes that cost 900 quid?

Retro chic is permanently in fashion, but if you’ve paid £150 for a reproduction Thin Lizzy t-shirt that would have cost maybe a tenner when Thin Lizzy were touring, you’re probably a twat. Especially if you have no idea who Thin Lizzy were.

Are you wearing a trilby?

If you’re a time traveller from the 1940s, fine. If you’re sitting in a pub in Camden talking about shit bands only you have heard of, you probably look like a twat.

Can you sit down on the bus?

If you’re wearing ridiculous high fashions straight off the most pretentious Paris catwalk, you may find your giant plastic dress or three-foot hat makes it difficult to use public transport. Leave the bacon dresses to Lady Gaga. She gets paid for looking like a twat.

Has anyone offered you some spare change?

This may be a sign that your ‘gypsy chic’ or ‘neo-grunge’ look is not quite working. Save up and go to M&S for some clothes that will be square but still cooler than just looking weird.
