Minister Nkomo said the only way to solve the problem was to brew traditional beer and carry out rites to appease the spirits.

Ah, yes, the legendary K'Egar ritual.

You know, now that you mention it, I think I might have seen some mermaids lurking on the fifth floor. Or it could've been HR. Oh well, better to play it safe...

Okey dokey.

Was it Ariel? Because she's not very scary.

Calling Aquaman, Prince Namor:The Submariner.

Sounds suspiciously like they're *already* breaking into the traditional beer. Or just looking for an excuse to brew more. Or all of the above.

Gotta give these workers a lot of credit. I have yet to convince any authority to brew me anything.

I bet a few on this blog would welcome our new overlords.

KJP - Finance has the mermaids. HR is Naiads.

I believe the mermaids are covered under the EEOC policy on the Differently Tailed

Does every mythical apparition have an ritual alcoholic brew? Nessie: Scotch, Sasquatch: Moosehead, Yeti: Yak milk beer, Chupacabra: Tequila, Walter: Mojito.

So true. It works for every crisis. The rites must, however, involve drinking "massive quantities" of beer. Or it won't work. Nor will using Bud or Bud Light.

Just saying...(burp!)...

This explains why I've never been bothered by mermaids. Or anything else that resembles a female, for that matter.

Which came first, Loud, the mythical apparition or the ritual alcoholic brew?

O_o

Mermaids - a common everyday occurrence in the TJ River... oops - make that Illegals.
