“Clean and sober just means that I’m showered and heading to the liquor store”

"Being ‘clean and sober’ means I’ve showered and I’m headed to the liquor store” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images.

The line was used in the Canadian mockumentary sitcom television series Trailer Park Boys by antagonistic trailer park supervisor Jim Lahey, played by Canadian actor John Dunsworth (1946-2017).
