Brendan Behan perhaps the most famous Irish writer of his time, and refered to himself as as “a drinker with a writing problem”, was once hired to write an advertising slogan for Guinness. As part of his payment for this, the company offered him half a dozen kegs of their stout. After a month the company asked Behan what he had come up with; Behan had already managed to drink all of the beer they had given him and produced the famous slogan Guinness makes you drunk.
