Your right. I had to laugh. Especially the Galloping Gourmet.
His was a pistol and everybody seemed to like him.
I've noticed this habit with house painters too.

So that is why I could never be a chef! I don't drink enough, well why didn't someone tell me sooner, now I have lost time to make up for!
Personally, I was 'blessed' with this reaction to alcohol, gives me bad heartburn. Of course when I was a kid, I could drink all night and not get hangovers, everybody hated that about me.
But now, no more than two or three times a year.

Don't tell me he wasn't imbibing in something when he made those mashed potatoes

There certainly are chefs and cooks who don't drink (although they may cook with wine etc) and many others who shouldn't anymore! However I enjoy a glass of wine or beer with a meal, and sometimes a fine sippin' whiskey afterwards. If I am cooking with firends over, I may have a glass of wine while I'm cooking but it rarely gets drunk until I'm done at the stove top. I don't like accidents of any kind.

many do, but fewer and fewer each year. Check out the culinary schools... smoking is on the decline even among the orally fixated cheffing profession

Honestly cooking really makes me want a drink. It sucks when I have to drive after dinner, I'm too paranoid to have even 1 before I drive.
