The Wisdom of a glass of beer

Wisdom of a glass of beer

"Sometimes, when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed.  Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I did not drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, it is better to drink this beer & let dreams come true, than be selfish & worry about my liver.”

One night at  Cheers,  a TV Sitcom, Cliff Clavin  said to his buddy, Norm Peterson: "Well, ya see, Normy, it's like this .. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo.  And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first.  This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.

In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells.  Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells.  But, naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first.  In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.  That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers!”

This is a theory that Dr, Fauci would endorse and gladly accept the tributes from ale manufacturers.

Please tell me why I would drink a liquid that when you drink one pint of it you piss 2 pints of liquid. Not what I call an enjoyable experience.

Dad came home in 1945 after serving in Europe during World War II.

In New York City, he was told he was too young to buy beer.

Old enough to have been sent to war by his country, though.  Go figure.

Cheers
