In an interview with ABC's 20/20, Ms. Kirby's attorney explained that the cruise line was at fault for "over-serving" her alcohol.

They IV'd it? Held her down and vodkaboarded her?

She got shitfaced, fell and is damned lucky to be alive. Stupidity is normally a self correcting problem.

It's hysterical.

There are laws against serving alcohol to obviously intoxicated people, but those laws are generally designed to stop people from driving while highly intoxicated.

I don't know that it applies here.

If I were every single other passenger in that cruise ship, I'd sue Ms. Kirby for ruining my cruise.

She is a modern citizen. She is resentful and she is in the hands of a greedy lawyer. They intend to drive up insurance rates, on everything we do.

In old times, she would be forever grateful that the ship stopped, helped her to live.

And way too embarrassed to be on TV discussing how we got so drunk that we fell off the ship to begin with.

I just re-read her list of injuries. She managed to stay afloat 90 minutes with those? God truly does watch over drunks and fools.
