Drunk History?


Wait a minute…that’s not how I don’t remember it!

I spotted these ads in the subway last week. I haven’t watched this new show on Comedy Central. And as much as I love a good laugh, far too many of us are woefully ignorant of our history, so it worries me that people might get confused about the difference between entertainment and history – like some seem to have with Ollie Stone’s JFK.

Look, I’m all for drinking…and comedy. And I hate to be a buzzkill. But given that primetime television has been treating zombies as a legitimate threat, I’m not sure it’s wise to be making mockumentaries about historical incidents until we have a populace sufficiently educated to know the difference.
