Whisky: An Absolute Lifesaver

You should always hide Whisky bottles in key areas around your house. Your girlfriend/flatmate/friends may think you are an alcoholic, but there are good reasons to do so:

A man who became trapped beneath his sofa for two days said he survived by sipping from a bottle of whisky.
Joe Galliott, 65, lost his bearings during a power cut at his home in Yeovil, Somerset, and fell against the three-seater which toppled onto him.
Because of back problems, he was unable to free his 19-stone frame and remained stuck for 60 hours until a neighbour spotted him through the curtains.

He said a bottle of whisky, which had rolled within reach, kept him going.

“The whole settee tipped over catching me like a rat in a trap,” he said
“I took a sip of [the whisky] and thought, well this isn’t too bad.”

But after several hours without food or water, he admits, he became quite worried.
“It felt like a lifetime, you think you’re there forever,” he said.
The alarm was raised by a neighbour who had peered through the window, after becoming concerned that Mr Galliott’s curtains had not been drawn for two days.
He spent five days recovering in hospital after his ordeal earlier this month.

Mr Galliott said he was keeping another bottle of whisky by the sofa ‘just incase’


The ‘water of life’ seems more appropriate than ever! I am going to hide whisky bottles around my house from now on. I recommend, for your safety, that you do the same!


Err… I think there already are a few dotted around my pad.
