I am ombibulous. I drink every known alcoholic drink and enjoy ’em all. — H.L. Mencken

Found a long interview with Mencken whilst on a 1920s kick (looking at W.C. Fields bits on You Tube). Bloody brilliant stuff. Nearly as good is the Greatest Drunks of All Time series.

Whilst half plastered on bourbon, homemade hard cider and gin and tonics I managed to beat out the following list.

I think my heroes are:
Hunter Thompson
Henry Mencken
Groucho Marx
W.C. Fields

Those gentlemen are the finest philosophers in history. Even the ones that aren’t real.
