So At Least Two People Agree With Me

If I could change this cartoon in any way, I'd add three words to the caption: "So I drink." 

And, as a bonus, I come across this sentence in Walter Russell Mead's essay in the current issue of  Foreign Affairs

The French have long felt that Englishmen do not like women, are bored or frightened in their presence, and turn to drink as a substitute for female company.

I don't know how accurate the stereotype about Englishmen is, but the link between alcohol and women is dead on.
