I get absolutely no sense that Cueball is intoxicated at all.  I'm not sure where that would come from, other than being at a party; of course, not every party has alcohol and not everybody drinks when they do.

:Removed from the explanation. Seems more like the other Social interactions comics, rather than Cueball being drunk. [[User:Herobrine|Herobrine]] ([[User talk:Herobrine|talk]]) 06:25, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
 
 
At least from my personal experience, it’s hard to get me talking, a la the rest of xkcd, and when I do, this comic happens. [[User:Netherin5|“That Guy from the Netherlands”]] ([[User talk:Netherin5|talk]]) 12:31, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
 
:This is definitely how I interpreted this. Cueball seems much more likely to be experiencing social anxiety than drunkenness. -- [[User:FroggerUnderrated|FroggerUnderrated]] ([[User talk:FroggerUnderrated|talk]]) 16:40, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
 
 
I would write something, but I'm afraid that it would be wrong and I'd be judged. [[Special:Contributions/162.158.150.120|162.158.150.120]] 13:03, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
 
 
Randall often writes characters with some traits of autism, although they might not be diagnosable (see XKCD 602, for example). The impulse to "hide under [the] bed" could be interpreted as a shutdown.

I read the comic as a typical depiction of someone coming home from a party after drinking too much, but he's talking about opinions. The commentary is that opinions are like alcohol: people often have too many, they make us say things in conversation (arguments) that we end up regretting, and people never seem to know when to stop. Replace talking with alcohol and basically we have someone coming home after drinking too much (the title), talking about how much they drank, regretting the things they did or say while drinking, going to bed vowing never to drink again, and then clearly not learning their lesson they're ready to drink again all too soon.

I think his is more about social anxiety. Someone with social anxiety would, after coming home from a party (why would he even be at a party to begin with? Who knows?) would start thinking about everything he said and start second guessing everything, perhaps even going as far as to assume that everything he said was bad/wrong/impolite somehow. Or at least that's what happens to me. [[Special:Contributions/141.101.69.105|141.101.69.105]] 13:45, 10 April 2019 (UTC)Alex
 
 
 
Seems to me this is overthinking it. Talking a lot at a party has been the subject in other comics. And saying something that your regret based on this is not strange. The problem and punch line is that everyone likes to express their opinions. And cannot stop just because they got rejected and had a bad time last time they expressed their opinion. And then of course that he formed new opinions, and think he can make some (title text) that every one would agree to. --[[User:Kynde|Kynde]] ([[User talk:Kynde|talk]]) 18:03, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
