A COUPLE are planning to spend tonight investigating whether it is possible to get seriously drunk on Baileys alone.
Iain and Carolyn Ryan of Warwick have laid in two litre bottles of the popular cream-based liqueur and have vowed to drink ‘as much as it takes’ to get properly, staggeringly intoxicated.
Carolyn said: “We’ve been planning this all year.
“The idea came up last January, when we were finishing a bottle which had more in than we’d thought and found ourselves more than a little squiffy.
“What, we hypothesised, would it be like if we treated Baileys not just as an apertif or nightcap but as the main booze of the evening? Would we be able to get hardcore falling-down pissed?
“Tonight, nothing but the 17 per cent alcohol in that creamy Irish goodness will be getting us shitfaced. Will it be a smooth, mellow drunk or a bloated, sickly one?
She added: “We’ve laid aside the whole of tomorrow for throwing up. We’re not fools.”
