Young Boozer seeks Alabama offie office

We'll drink to that

It's come to our attention that a Young Boozer is standing for Alabama State Treasurer - a position of immense responsibility which the "active Eagle Scout" Birmingham native will doubtless handle with all the fiscal sobriety the post requires.

Boozer's pedigree is impressive: he comes from a long line of Young Boozers, including grandpa Boozer and pa Boozer, who was apparently a football star at the University of Alabama.

Young Boozer III is actually pretty chipper about his name, as the following vid shows. Mercifully for him, he's not standing for election in the UK, where headline writers would have an absolute field day on the poor chap's moniker.

Well, it's Friday, so in honour of Young Boozer we're off right away to sink a few pints to the best of our abilities. Cheers. ®
