OK, so it's not clear if Larry is really drunk, but his answer to this earnest caller is definitely loopy! (Fruit Loopy, perhaps?) Gawker unearthed this awesome tape of Larry (from a while back) responding to a guy who called in to ask for tips on how to break into journalism and succeed in the career. Let's just say that his answer could've been more succinct: Booze — lots and lots of booze. (Or, to be fair, sleep deprivation. This was taped at 3 a.m., after all!)
