1. "A DNA test....for my dog. Gotta love drunk purchases."


3. "Earlier in the day before I started drinking I watched a heartbreaking snippet on Facebook about a dying polar bear. It broke my heart. Later that night we were out for my girlfriend’s birthday and I had too much tequila. The next morning she woke up and told me she had a weird email from the World Wildlife Fund. And I had a weird transaction in my bank account also from World Wildlife Fund.

I got drunk and adopted her a polar bear. The gift message read 'surprise bitch here’s a polar bear.'"



4. "I bought a 12 month Club Penguin membership and some Coachella tickets."


6. "I don’t think I’ll ever shake off the regret I felt upon waking up with a raging hangover, checking my emails, and realising I’d bought almost every portable Minidisc recorder I could find on eBay. Clearly drunk me gets nostalgic for useless gadgets."


7. "A life-sized cardboard cut out of the Pope, 10oz of glitter, and 50 bowties."



9. "I was drunk and I bought a wholesale box of 100 party wigs from an eBay seller in Hong Kong. I knew I’d bought something because the money had left my account but I couldn’t remember what I’d done until a month later and this box arrived filled with cheap party wigs in various colours!"


10. "I once drunk ordered a yodelling Pickle and forgot until it showed up at my door. Luckily I was able to regift it to my nephew."



12. "I woke up after a night out at uni in Manchester and realised myself and two friends had Megabus tickets to Birmingham and entry to Cadbury World for the following day."


13. "Once I was drunk in Heathrow Airport and I went into the Harry Potter merchandise store and bought Voldemort’s wand and tried to put spells on people."




"I was very drunk on rum one night and I took a 20 minute drunk nap and dreamed I was a pirate captain on the high seas, then woke up for a bit and then went back to bed.

Two days later, a flask appears at my doorstep which I apparently ordered after briefly waking up, inspired by my pirate dream."


15. "After a particularly festive Friday night my Flatmate woke up to find he’d drunkenly ordered a giant bouncy castle. For £3,000. We lived on the fourth floor."



16. "A life-sized cut out of John Cena. My roommates and I put him at the bottom of our staircase so he can keep guard."
