Homer Simpson, with all his might, toasts his favorite beverage (beer) with this memorable quote flying around social media networks:
To ALCOHOL, the cause of… and solution to… all of life’s problems!”
The discussions everywhere highlight the truth about beer, alcohol, and our society here in America. Internet commenters starting in with discussions of prior bouts with alcoholism, stints in rehab and attempts at recovery, or success stories evidenced with sobriety tokens and coins. Laments of having started drinking beer at young ages, sad memories of loved ones lost to alcohol, or recounts of tragic events associate with alcohol. “No truer words have ever been spoken” chimes in one observer, while another “toasts to that!” presumably with a beer.
What started as humorous stupidity from the beloved dope Homer Simpson has become an Internet meme, resonating all over social media. Is alcohol the problem? Or is it the solution? Clearly, for many, alcohol is both, and the irony is understood by many.
