Čím víc procent alkoholu, tím víc jde tvůj výkon dolů! Hrome, který je ten pravý [A factory worker faced with three crane hooks says "The more you drink, the less efficiently you work! Damn it! Which one is the right one?"]-- Co je lepší? Pořídit hezký dárek pro dítě, nebo získat ošklivou opici? [A father giving his son a new shirt, contrasted with a drunk, asks "Which is better? To give your child a present, or to get a terrible hangover?"]-- Společný výmlat - podle marných plánů kulaků a pánů [Collective threshing - in the nasty plans of kulaks (high-income farmers)]-- Tak se mi zdá, že tímhle výkonem si výplatu nezlepším! [I have a feeling I won't be better paid working this way!]-- Můžeš být vynášen tak, nebo tak. Záleží na tobě. Vyber si! [You decide what you get. It's up to you. Make your choice!]-- Kdo pil umřel. Kdo nepil, taky. (Ano, ale jde o to, kdy a jak) [If you drink too much you die, if you don't, you die anyway (but it depends how and when)]-- Od opice k člověku dle Darwina. Od člověka k opici dle množství vypitého alkoholu [From ape to man by Darwin. From man to ape by the amount of alcohol consumed] -- Nehody zaviněné opilými motoristy nás stojí ročně 180 milionů KČS [Accidents caused by drinking of alcohol cost us millions every year]-- Všeho s mírou, ale nikdy takhle [A drinker with a metre rule says "Excess may do you harm"]
