Ancient drunks--just like us. And Jersey Shore! (For any readers not in the U.S., Jersey Shore is a reality TV show featuring a group of young Italian-Americans who do nothing but groom and get drunk. Don't worry, I don't get it either.)
But there's more! Check out this one on the right showing Jersey Shore's "The Situation" and his impressive abs having to abandon his lyre so that he can direct "Ronnie's" head toward the handy vomit-pythos dragged over for just that moment.
And good ol' lush "Snookie" gets her own ancient moment too in the plate (below) showing her being drunkenly escorted from the party. Thankfully, this ancient Snookie is not tottering on ridiculous heels, though she seems sadly unaware that she is flashing all her friends at the Symposium.
Unfortunately, many other examples tend to skew toward illustrations of a more "earthy" nature, which I can't show here.
(Think of the children!)
Still, it's clear (and hilarious). Those Greeks sure knew how to party!
