"Enjoy Responsibly"

It bothers me that every liquor ad has a little line at the bottom that says, "Enjoy Responsibly." First of all, you can't really enjoy liquor responsibly - that's an oxymoron, like jumbo shrimp. Furthermore, responsibility is subjective. Two weeks ago, I visited Triplet #2 in London, drank too much, and threw up in his apartment. That was irresponsible. But I threw up in the garbage can, which was responsible. But the garbage can didn't have a bag in it, which was irresponsible. And it was mesh, which is just plain gross.
