Kenya have two mental images of alcohol: the cool couple in a TV advert and the soiled drunk lying spread-eagled in the gutter.
But the things that drunkards do make for hilarious reading. We have drunken men who wake up in the middle of the night but forget the way to the toilet and turn fridges, doors and even TV sets into urinals.
And there is the man who collapsed by the roadside at midday and somehow imagined that he was sleeping beside his wife.
“Stop hoarding the blanket, Adhiambo,” he mumbled as bystanders howled with laughter.
Drink is also infamous for showing scant respect for the mighty. Wambui Choku remembers an incident during their company’s team building session where alcohol and roast goat meat were in plenty.
