Instagram snaps drunk girls and boys of Melbourne Cup
FORGET the horses, the most entertaining thing about Melbourne Cup Day has always been a very different group of beasts - the drunks on the sidelines.
Thankfully for those of us stuck in an office or at home on the day when most Australians are thinking about a glass of champagne, social media has come to the rescue.
Introducing the "Drunk Girls Of Melbourne Cup" on Instagram.
Despite the catchy name, its tagline assures us that it is just as keen to show us photos of the drunk boys.
"We are celebrating the young fillies and colts that love to party at the Melbourne Cup. Keep up the great work girls and boys!".
The images are mostly from Melbourne Cups passed, but no doubt there will be plenty of new material before the day ends.
Take care of yourselves out there today.
And if you can't keep your head on straight, try to at least keep your pants.
