London, ENGLAND--Orders are flowing in for pub owner Colin Whit's novel new plan to brighten up those dreary parties. At $5 a head, plus free drinks, you can rent one of his seven-strong team of professional "drunks," four men and three women who all guarantee to get things going with a swing.

Colin explains with a grin, "We don't exactly send our people out rolling, you know--just in a merry mood. And we undertake not to become ill or insulting at parties."
