Your beer is ready.

Near the bottom of the article it even says that Afghanistan has contacted them about this. Afghanistan? Who drinks beer in Afghanistan?



Then again, Afghanistan anagrams to Agatha Finn's, which kind of sounds like a good place for a pint and a shag.

stupid double posts...I'm thirsty.

Just don't let Amy get a hold of this stuff.

*rushes out to put on beer-proof underwear*

Beer is universal.

a universal = vase urinal

They drink lots of beer in afghanistan.
How you think they get so crazy?

..and the geek shall inherit the earth. (Or something close to that)

When rappers say "Put your hands in the air, like you just don't care."
Wouldn't it be a better demonstration of apathy to just do nothing?

"manufacture, for example, their own HIV/AIDS drugs."

"Honey, I'm sick of messing around with Beer 2.4. Let's go get AIDS instead."

"But I picked up HIV just yesterday, dear. What did you do with that?"

"Ohh! I thought that 'hops' was misspelled on the package..."

So the Danish make a beer and then challenge the rest of the world to 'follow in their footsteps' and cure AIDS/HIV?

M. P.A.
What do you expect from a country named after a pastry?

*zips in*

country named after a pastry *snork* - even if I don't know who you are, you're still funny - but I digress.

I find this story heartwarming; University students taking their years of education paid for by their parental units working for years and years and years, and doing something that will benefit society - BEER!!!

Eleanor, I'll drink to that.

Sorry, but somebody had to say it.

*zips out*

Let's be careful with encouraging (namewithheld) AKA "noone". I think I may be detecting a Beth-like thread to his/her posts.

It's like that saying: Give a man a beer, and he'll, well, he'll drink it. But give a man a recipe for a beer, and he will go off looking for another free beer.

Or that other one: Ask not what your country can do for you, ask for whom the beer tolls, for it tolls for you, and you have nothing to beer, but beer beer beer beer beer.

There are others.

Again, I'm sorry. No Beth here, no need to worry. Will not comment again.

Well, when in Denmark, do as the Danish do.

Haben Sie ein bier.

OK, so that's German, but I don't know Danish.

Oh, and C'bol? In Heaven there ain't no beer, that's why we drink it here...

"Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

~Benjamin Franklin

Is it just me, or do the spammers here not realize that we've already spent our paycheck on cheap beer?
Speaking of which, I regret not learning about open-source beer earlier.

The onset of an epidemic has seemingly become, well, an epidemic.

I piss in your cup, spammer(s), and tell you it's beer.

I'm with you M.C.--I have a vase or two that I would empty into a spammer's cup any time. Or, maybe we could hold the spammers down whilst several professional Australian women hover over them.

And I've been wondering where I left that list!


Bumble - an excellent quote! More evidence that you will be a success in life.

And on the subject of great quotes:
"All I can say is that I have taken more out of alcohol than it has taken out of me."
~Winston Churchill

I'll admit that beer goes good with Spam, but this is a little ridiculous.

I really rather doubt that the spammers come back to look at the comments. I think they just find a thread, dump their toxic waste and run. Then we have to scroll (and scroll and scroll and scroll) to get past it to the good stuff. Y'all just keep posting the good stuff so it makes all that scrolling worth it.


scared - I don't sense any of the really bizzare behavior of "Beth" with (name), however, I do notice that both you and (name) seem unwilling to share any sort of clue as to who you might be. In this neck of the woods, we provide some sort of valid e-mail address or blog address to have any credibility. Any anonymous posts will be dissected, ridiculed, corrected for spelling and syntax by Mr. Language Person, then summarily dismissed by this sarcastic community as a whole.

In short, trolls really shouldn't shake this bridge, because you don't know what's going to fall off on your noggin.

Google can't find the save Jim DeFede website...can you provide a link? Thanks!

Aunt Nancy- Thanks, but I can't take too much credit for learning that one. I saw it on a t-shirt. :-)

Open source beer? It's communism, is what it is! True communism, as has never been realized in this world full of those who lust for power. And so, at long last, the vision of Marx and Engels is being realized by software geeks and beer lovers.

Huh. Who saw that coming?

"All beers are created equal!"

"Only a few beers are more equal than others...."


free beer?!? i'm in.

is it really true that it's always five o'clock somewhere?

Almost 5 o'clock in Moscow!

Though I'm not there...

darn, I was hoping I could run the program on my computer and it would dispense the beer!

yes, if everybody in the world used sun dials, then it would always be 5 o'clock somewhere.

almost 5 o'clock is good enough!!

Cool... I've been wondering where to buy more tadpole tapes.

Leets - and where else are you going to find Caustic calcined magnesite nowadays.

Bumble - About that Ben Franklin quote - As a Phildelphian and a wine dork, (nothing against beer and its lovers - I've consumed my fair share of that too), but I believe the actual quote is about wine:

"We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage of Cana, as a miracle. But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every daybefore our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with th egrapes to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy"
B. Franklin

--ducks and prepares herself for abuse for daring to contradict the Bumble.

Sthnbell - Bumble said she got the quote from a T-shirt, so you're not contradicting Bumble, you're contradicting a T-shirt. So no abuse should be forthcoming. The quote, using either beverage, is appropriate.

Hier haben Sie ein Glas Wein.

Maud - whenever someone says the name "Marx" I always think of this:

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
~Groucho Marx

Aunt Nancy - "This morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How it got in my pajamas, I'll never know."

I think Karl meant well - and I'm not sure Groucho did - but I'm pretty sure Groucho has improved more people's lives!

You guys haven't experienced beer unless you've been to one (or both) of these places: anywhere in Germany during Oktoberfest or Bratfest in Harrisville Wisconsin...oh the tales I could share...

of course, crossgirl; especially on a Friday!

You know you're pathetic when you wish you hadn't been gone all day because you were spoken to on the blog and couldn't answer.
