"Good old, mean old Carl was the greatest little drink pourer in the world. He used drinks like other types of sadists used whips. He kept beating you with them until you dropped or sobbed or went mad, and he enjoyed every step of the process."

"The Sea was Wet as Wet Could Be" (1967) is a surreal short story by Gahan Wilson, first published in Playboy in 1967.

It was inspired by the poem "The Walrus and the Carpenter" and includes large parts of it.

In this story, a party of five drunk people become the oysters of The Walrus and the Carpenter and die.
