“Beware of Friends Bearing Gifts”

When the editors of the dictionary sat down and wrote the definition of lazy, they must’ve met George on the way to their office. The guy was pure bone-idled lazy.

Blessed with above-average intelligence and good looks, George possessed two flaws that stopped him from achieving his full potential — he was rich and he liked to party.

His only goal in life was to stumble from one party to the next — a beautiful model on one arm, and a six pack of beer in the other. A drunkard who shucked responsibility in all forms, his breakfast was whiskey with a rum chaser, lunch was a case of Budweiser, and dinner was a T-bone to soak up the expensive wine he drank before the steak arrived.
