Binge drinking in my native Britain is seemingly always in the news, with beer-fuelled bother a tried and trusted source for the tabloids. And now in Japan, with April’s fresh intake of staff partaking in plenty of welcome parties, there is a new campaign designed to help protect those not wanting to get totally wasted.
An approach that means the common call of “ikki ikki” to coerce someone into downing their drink in one, can now be countered by The Ikki Harassment Prevention Committee’s new collection of coasters.
The suitably cute creations protecting their owners with four sensible and sober slogans: “I don’t do ikki – I like to savour my drink”; “I can’t drink – it’s not in my DNA”; “I’m not drinking, I’m driving – so I’m not joining in” and “I’m not drinking, I’ve got limits – one drink is quite enough”.
Which, in the midst of drink-induced debauchery, should definitely do the trick.
Especially so when one is tucked into a top pocket.
