English girls reminded not to get too pissed


More Christmas cheer from overseas! This time, it’s a PSA campaign from the U.K.’s National Health Service urging young British people not to make arses of themselves by binge drinking this holiday. Women who ignore this advice will find themselves urinating in public (see below), while men will wander into streets, get hit by cars and lose legs. (Dismemberment doesn’t just happen on Australian highways.) The ads point to a Web site called Cocktales, where you learn how to “make the most of your night out and avoid becoming the star of a Cocktale.” Meanwhile, because the British literally never stop drinking, the government also has new ads warning them of the dangers of skiing drunk in the Alps.
