Buying a Beer

There was a big conference of beer producers in one of the most beautiful towns in the world, Amsterdam, which is in the Netherlands, not that this has anything to do with the story.

At the end of the day, all of the presidents of all the beer companies decide to have a drink in a bar.

The president of Budweiser ordered a Bud, the CEO of Miller ordered a Miller Lite, Peter Coors ordered a Coors, Trevor O'Hoy from Australia orders a Foster's and the list goes on.

Then the waitress asked Arthur Guinness' Great Great Great Great Grandson what he wanted to drink, and much to everybody's amazement, Mr. Guinness ordered a Coke!

"Why don't you order a Guinness?" his colleagues asked.

"Naah. If you guys won't drink beer, than neither will I."

I like that one. I heard somebody sent some Coors to a lab for testing. It came back with a note that said, "This horse should not be worked."

Funny! I'm not a beer fan, but when I drink it, I prefer a dark, hearty one, usually foreign brands are better.

Ha ha that's a good one!

We dared out in -3 (-19 in Canada) for ribs the other night...and I had a couple Rollingrock. They were so refreshing like 7 up without sugar...but I didn't get any kind of a buzz.

I laughed out loud at that one.

You daft muppet - Guinness is a stout not a beer.

Last time I had Guinness in the States they tried to tell me that half a glass of Guinness with a head as big as George Bush's was how it was supposed to be. I insisted on them topping it up and when they refused I asked for a spoon and wafer for the ice cream. They didn't laugh. You can't get the staff.
