Random thought of the day

Why is a case of wine 12 bottles, a case of whiskey 12 bottles.... but a case of beer is 24? I'm at a loss.

At first I thought it could be related to the alcohol % and volume - i.e. you got equally fucked up from each case of said alcoholic beverage, but that doesn't work when you think it through:

A case of beer will cause you to wake up on your front lawn with a grass stain on your face and bloody knee that you don't know how you got.

A case of wine will put you in the hospital getting your stomach pumped.

A case of whiskey will kill you.

So that theory is out the door.

What's your theory?

PS - SassyTwoSocks was referenced by Gawker a few days ago in reference to that psycho who was posting "wanted ads" for women... exciting! On a side note, I found out that my sister-in-law knows this dude, Malik. Creepy.


  1. Could be because of the weight.
    A 24 case of whiskey or wine could be tricky trying to lift it :)

    Plus, they love their multiples of 6 for everything - 6, 12, 24. 6 wouldn't be enough, so 12 is perfect for those bigger bottle cases.

  2. hmm, maybe its because a dinner table can seat 6, and you have 4 each to get the proper amount of buzz.

    then again, maybe a case of wine doesnt make you feel you ahve a problem.

    beer is consumed more than wine?

  3. i can drink a bottle of (red) wine. or a six pack of beer. wine buzz is mellow. beer wine makes me want vicodin

  4. Maybe we should ask the squirrel? He's so darn cute :)
