I got the things all up to the cabin, and then it was about dark. While I was cooking supper the old man took a swig or two and got sort of warmed up, and went to ripping again. He had been drunk over in town, and laid in the gutter all night, and he was a sight to look at. A body would a thought he was Adam – he was just all mud. Whenever his liquor begun to work he most always went for the govment.

– Mark Twain

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Chapter 6. Huck’s life with his alcoholic father Pap. The allusion to Adam is about the Bible story of how God formed Adam from the dust of the ground.
