Anthony Bourdain to World Series Champ Chicago Cubs: 'Smoke a Joint'

There was a lot of excitement in Cleveland last night, although most of it was confined to the Chicago Cubs' locker room. The visiting team defeated Cleveland's beloved Indians eight runs to seven in a game that went ten innings and included a rain delay and enough sudden and dramatic reversals of fortune to send every Alcoholics Anonymous clubhouse in Ohio and Illinois combined down to drown its nerves at the closest corner bar.

Everyone who has ever benefited from a beer and three shots can understand how the Chicago Cub players may have over-quaffed once that final Cleveland player was thrown out. And anyone who has ever needed a fresh clip for the Thursday-morning news feed can understand that a TMZ reporter would ask reality-television dare-diner Anthony Bourdain to disclose his personal best hangover remedy—to the service of Chicago's valiant, drink-drubbed Cubbies.

On top of that, anyone who has ever warded off alcohol's nasty aftereffects with a cushioning breath of fresh kush can understand Bourdain's succinct and effective advice to the over ebullient Cubs players and also—although no mention was made of them—to the crestfallen Indians and their fans: "Smoke a joint."
