    Question blame booze

    When in doubt,blame booze! Unless,of course, the drunk excuse only makes matter worse.

    What does this sentence explain? I don't get the clear meaning.

    k but could you please explain me- When in doubt,blame booze!
    What does this mean in the complete sentence,I know the words individually but as a whole I get very confused. Would be thankful if you will explain me clearly. please help.

    I can tell you the further part of the matter from the book:
    The drunk person is making lame excuse to the cop after being pulled over by him- His high blood level was a result of the alcohol based hand sanitizer he'd used.

    If you are not sure which excuse to use, choose the excuse of an excessive intake of alcohol.
