Something tells me they were drinking a bottle of an adult beverage and not using their Looney Tunes Shot Glass (TM) !
I'll still be waiting for a definitive Bugs anthology. May be a long wait. I can't understand why the famous 'Rhapsody Rabbit', an acknowledged animation classic, is still missing in action. At least I have it on DVD.
