The Wolf and the Vulture

Latigo Flint has just invented a magnificent drinking game called The Wolf and the Vulture. The Wolf and the Vulture is a one-person drinking game. The rules are pretty simple. You will need:

One bare coffee table, or similar surface.
Two sheets of art paper.
An assortment of charcoal sketching pencils.
Six bottles of high-proof liquor. Your choice.

Place the two sheets of art paper on the bare coffee table or similar surface, and with the charcoal pencils, sketch your best depiction of a wolf on one and a vulture on the second.

Next, drink yourself to death.


And that's it, that's the game. You win if you succeed in drinking yourself to death.

You lose if tomorrow comes.

You also lose by disqualification if your wolf looks more like a kitten and your vulture rather resembles an adorable fluffy duckling--because honestly now, when you get right down to it, leaving a charcoal sketch of a kitten and a duckling as your suicide note is just plain weird.

It might be a good idea to take a drawing class before attempting The Wolf and the Vulture.


(Happy Hallows Eve, you sly, sexy fiends.)

There is no losing in this game. Everybody wins. Even the kittens.

I played this game in art school, though in my version, you had to shout "Viva Las Vegas!" after you downed a shot.

I always lived, too, so I guess I always lost.

Who has a web cam? I vote we find a way to make this an interactive internet experience. We could set up a whole Web site and everything.

Plus, I'm pretty sure I'll win.

This won't be like the drunken Spam haiku contest, no sir.

Hey, at last, a game that incorporates drinking alone and staring into the abyss of your own soul flanked by predators and scavengers. I think I've got a shot at this one. I suck at Monopoly though.

The wolf represents halloween and the vulture represents hedonism. The paper represents death.

I was disqualified Peter... my wolf looked like a kitten.

Well, maybe Fourth--but life's also a game you only lose once, so it all sorta evens out in the end.

Oh Macek, especially the kittens. Especially the kittens.

No shame in losing Sharon, remember, tomorrow's another chance to snuff the subsequent tomorrow.

They do hold a certain fascination for him Tabitha Jane, this is true.

DMor, no one wants to hear your D&D stories old friend.

We're going to be rich Amandarama. Hell, the banner adds for the latest Anne Rice book and Decemberists albums oughta put us in the black alone.

Hey, you can use that Ari--you can use the shame of past Monopoly failure to succeed at The Wolf and the Vulture.

Exactly Trevor Record. Then of course the booze represents temporary joy and the coffee table... well, the coffee table is, and has always been Mother... ain't that right?

No joke. Recently a woman killed her lover by giving him a beer enema. He hit .40 BAC.
