Samuel Pepys. At the coronation of Charles II: “I had so great a list to pisse, that I went out a little while before the King had done all the ceremonies.” That night he drinks so much “my head begun to turne and I to vomitt … When I waked I found myself wet with my spewing. Thus did the day end, with joy everywhere.” 23rd April 1661. What a legend.
