"Liquor then beer, you're in the clear; beer then liquor, never been sicker." Is this true, and if so, why?

Google search of the phrase turned up fairly vague answers, mostly just saying something about how people generally measure their beer intake better, but there was no real evidence. I'm wondering if there is any truth to this saying (besides my own anecdotal evidence), and if so, what are the reasons behind it. Does it have anything to do with the make-up of these different beverages and the way the body processes them? Is their a behavioral component? Do the types of liquor/beer affect this?
