Tequila Sunrise

There’s a new show you need to be watching now. It’s called Drunk History.

You need to watch it because a) it’s hilarious; b) you might actually learn some history; and c) it’s hilarious.

It’s actually been around since 2007 (as a web series), but Comedy Central just picked it up last month. What happens is a historian gets super lit, tells a historical story and comedians act it out. Genius.

You know how they keep saying that the gen x-ers and millenials actually get all of their news from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert? Well, I have no doubt that in a few months, the only thing I (and most of my peers) will remember about history will come from this show too. Baby Boomers, be prepared to get in a huff.

When they “get ready” to film the show, they usually just down a bottle of whiskey or something. They aren’t typically sipping on fruity cocktails, not saying they shouldn’t be.

I remember wanting to drink tequila sunrises since I was very young and definitely not old enough to drink them. They are just so pretty!
