    Question A passage

    Many say being a drunkard is not that totally unreasonable. Some suggest it's a way of being normal in the world of abnormality we're put to live in; smarty-pants, I'd say. Others claim this is blood that makes them live but what's in it puts them in a good mood. Others again, that without booze there's no snooze.

    Simply put, this is a load of rubbish spread by the clubbish.
    -------

    Any comments on the above load of rubbish? I'd appreciate them.

    The highlighted sentence makes no sense to me!

    Is this yours or have you read it somewhere?

    Well, it's mine...

    Let me explain what I wanted this sentence to carry:

    blood is what makes these people live...
    and what's in it, read: booze, puts them in a good mood (this was not too clearly stated, I know, but on purpose).

    Does not the sentence you highlighted carry this meaning?

    Thanks,
    Nyggus
