Id rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy

Id rather have a full bottle in front of me, than a full frontal lobotomy is a satirical phrase which means that a person would rather be drinking in order to dull reality over going crazy, being mentally ill or facing reality. This idiom is often spoken by someone who wants to forget about the flaws and realistic expectations of life, and would rather drown their sorrows with alcohol which numbs the sadness and reality of life.
