For Koz Jen has made him to resolve to visit her at her new house. It took him 10 years before he ever came to her old house, and since she moved over the summer she’s tasking him with making the trip – with a smile.

Today’s Lack of Intelligence Report was a special holiday edition! It’s story time!

T’was a lack of Intelligence in China, a woman catching a flight
when her bottle of liquor caught security’s sight.

It was a bottle of cognac, In her carry on bag.
But she needed to check it because liquids are banned.

Her options were ship it or leave it behind,
but the bottle cost $200 bucks – leaving her in a bind.

The passenger chose to do none of the above
and that bottle of cognac, she decided to chug.

She sat in the corner til the cognac was gone
and immediately realized her decision was wrong.

The slurring and screaming quickly began
and she fell to the floor with the bottle in hand.

That’s where she laid until policemen arrived,
only to tell her she was too drunk to fly.

So if your holiday travel involves the airport,
stay sober or be the next Lack of Intelligence Report.
