Intelligence and booze

I’m with Mangan:

The more intelligent are able to see reality more clearly, and the reality they see is not a pretty sight. Therefore they drink more to dull their perceptions of reality and, to quote Johnson, ease the pain of being a man.

It makes reality funny instead of sad.
