“Blamed if I know – that is, what’s become of the raft. That old fool had made a trade and got forty dollars, and when we found him in the doggery the loafers had matched half-dollars with him and got every cent but what he’d spent for whisky; and when I got him home late last night and found the raft gone, we said, ‘That little rascal has stole our raft and shook us, and run off down the river.'”

– Mark Twain

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Chapter 31. The Duke speaking about the King, who as soon as he gets his hands on money drinks it away. Much like Huck’s father Pap.
