Get Drunk and Skinny This Holiday Season

Drink up, diet freaks.

’Tis the season to lose a few pounds so there’s room to gain it all back over the holidays, and as always, there are a bunch of wacked-out ideas on how to do it. Earlier in the week, there was a highly educated professor who lost 27 pounds via Twinkies, and today, the Brooklyn Paper has the Bay Ridge woman who transformed her body and "stood a little taller and felt classier" all thanks to Champagne. She even wrote a book about it. We’ll toast to that, but … seriously? By the way, fun lady friend, you might want to stock up on some "Mercy." [Brooklyn Paper]
