The inventor of boxed wine, Australian genius Thomas Angove, passed away last week at 92 years old
. Asylum would like to honor his contribution to our reckless abandon (aka "Slap the Bag") by proposing a National Box Wine Day, which will be held, well, today.
So wherever you are right now -- whether it be work, school or watching the baby -- walk outside and buy a box of wine. Immediately chug one-third (equal to one standard bottle), then let another third pour out on the ground for Angove. Finally share the rest with the winos slowly surrounding you. Don't feel trashy or ashamed. Drinking box wine is not nearly as low-class as some would have you believe.
In his latest commentary, Asylum's resident genius, Ryan McKee, has decided to lay out exactly why you should drink box wine and encourages readers to submit pics of box-wine-drinking and revelry to firstname.lastname@example.org
