Orthodox Union: Don't get drunk, just take a nap

A Jewish tradition has been to drink alcoholic beverages on Purim...The OU points out that the tradition is based on a rabbinic custom but that there is no obligation to fulfill it. The organization also explains that some rabbis rule that taking a nap fulfills the concept.
I'm sure that will go over great with the yeshiva bochurim who just love to nap. Don't drink a six pack shlomie, why not take a nice nappy instead? This would work great if it was the frum three year olds that had serious drinking problems. If this is the OU's idea of dealing with at risk teens, it needs to be refined slightly.
