In an unique campaign to raise awareness of what alcohol can do to young women, the police in Britian have taken to an ad campaign that is tounge-in-cheek in style. The ad campaign is designed around a magazine type packet that is labeled free and has advice about drinking in a light hearted, but carries a point with advice like:
“If you’ve got it, don’t flaunt it.”
“If you fall over or pass out, remember your skirt or dress may ride up,” the magazine says. “You could show off more than you intended — for all our sakes, please make sure you’re wearing nice pants and that you’ve recently had a wax.”
Readers are also told to stick with friends, book a taxi home and watch the amount they drink.
It’s interesting that it has come to this– police officers having to educate ladies that drinks will intoxicate you, that you will not be as sharp, that you can easily lose track of what is going on around you. I’m surprised there’s nothing in there about the date rape drugs!
Seriously, are people this dense about what happens when you drink? I mean, it’s not very far into the Bible that we see the results of fermentation. Noah gets off the ark, and for whatever reason he is drunk, and one of his sons gets cursed for looking at his nakedness.
The best advice would be to not start drinking in the first place.
