Explanation

Vodka is a distilled beverage composed primarily of water and ethanol, sometimes with traces of impurities and flavorings. Traditionally, vodka is made by the distillation of fermented cereal grains or potatoes, though some modern brands use other substances, such as fruits or sugar.

When most people say "it's the vodka talking" (or similar phrases), they mean that they are speaking under the influence of alcohol.

However, in this comic, it is as if the substance of vodka itself is talking, and discussing its origin (potatoes).

Transcript

[Ponytail and Megan sits together at a table with 2 unattended shots of vodka.]
[Ponytail holds the vodka bottle near her mouth, while Megan holds a glass of vodka on the table.]
Ponytail: Maybe this is the vodka talking, but:
Ponytail: Hi! I'm made from potatoes!

Discussion

Wohoo I'm first how's it going people from the near future?

Weirdly enough, 80 proof vodka and the human body are both about 60% water. If you replaced the remaining 30-odd percent of volume in your body with pure alcohol, you could sustain yourself purely on vodka! Or become vodka. Consumer (talk) 09:37, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
