PCVs fulfilling the 4th goal of Peace Corps-- getting loaded on palm wine before 10AM:

Shey: "I'm feeling very host-country national right now"
Nformi: "Me too...We got all dry season to finish up this project"

Who woulda thought that leaving millet & river water in a closed bottle out in the sun for 10 days would have THIS effect. We'll be billionaires when we get back to the states!

I believe this cartoon to be an insult to most RPCVs and PCVs. Why not go all the way and picture a shaggy haired, unshaven, sloppy dude sticking a needle up his vein while humping a mule?

Remember our PCV unwritten motto: Peace Corps Volunteers work hard and play hard!

Adapting to former Soviet culture is easier than I thought.

If, as you report, alcoholism is a problem with PCV's, why do you joke about it?

Gosh, our fellow Peace Corps volunteers have no sense of humor! No wonder we're driven to drink! Pass the bottle.

We are going to have to ask for an increase in our country allowance if we are going to continue to work under these conditions.

I think that is a stupid idea for funny. This is a good example of what it truly WRONG in society and the USA.
Getting drunk is funny?????

This isn't funny. I did have one of my vol friends throw up on me. The other two were worse than dizzy -sick. I got to the lunch late, the natonal colleagues knew I knew it was wrong to get so drunk. My young college graduate vol friends hadn't the core strength to say enough! and stop, or to save themselves.

THAT, my friend, is what happens if you whistle the entire Star Spangled Banner on jugs without stopping. (people with no imagination ASSUME it's about drinking - get out of your ruts).

Houston, we have a problem.

Let's try not to throw up any more bricks today.

...this gives a whole new meaning to "rebar".

I see nothing wrong with the CARTOONS or the HUMOR--it's only poking fun at situations. Those of you who were offended need to get off your Jerry Falwell/Pat Robertson, I'm so righteous, high horses and lighten up. Life is too short for you to be so stuffed!! Besides, you probably make worse jokes when you're with "the boys".

"Since we are just another brick in the wall we might as well get plastered."

"Eat, drink and be merry for tomarrow we might get real paying jobs with benifits."

"Peace Corp Volunteers don't have a drinking problem....We drink fall down get back up make it to our positions hung over no problem."

At first I was offended but now I am mildly amused.

While waiting for their co-workers to show up, the two started the third round of their favorite song, "Ninety-nine bottles of beer on the unfinished wall, ninety-nine bottles..."

PCV 1: Man, that mefloquine is freaking me out!
PCV 2: Be cool, Malaria is no joking matter! How bout a warm brew to bring you down?
PCV 1: Sorry I don't drink...hey, that looks like a pipe by your side...

After having accidentaly injested what they believed to be really clear water for four hours on a sunny day in May Larry and Horace were astonished to discover - after their nap, that they were well on their way to completing their first assignment. The following week Larry and Horace had to admit to themselves that maybe they had misread the plans during the missing four hours and the project really didn't look like a fish pond.
