Oh, pass me a beer please.

Could've been werse ... @ least it wuzn't whut's passed off as "beer" by USofA brewers ... now, if it'd've been a Guinness truck, he'd've been able to retire without ever worryin' about whence his nourishmentalness wuz gonna arrive, fer the rest of his life ...

He immediately called 911, and three pretzel trucks were on the scene within minutes.

Corona? I hope FEMA is choppering in a sh!tload of limes for him.

At least he's got power to keep the chillers running.

Many years ago, when drinking and driving was still considered more a joke than a crime, I was stuck on I-75 after a truck wreck several miles ahead. There'd been a massive snowstorm and traffic stopped dead.
Everyone thought that we'd give it an hour and be on our way. It was Kentucky and it rarely snows in KY.
I turned on my CB radio and immediately heard someone ask, "Who has some beer?"
About two hours later, I heard, "Um, hey, where's the men's room around here?"
To those needing this info, it's between the cab of a semi and the trailer, in the right lane.

960 bottles of beer inside,
960 bottles of beer inside.
gulp one down, without frown,
959 bottles of beer inside...

How the driver passed the time...

Regretably, I think I'm going to have to pass on the live thyroid surgery viewing (Feb. 1, 4pm!)being offered in the banner ad at the top of the blog these last couple of hours.

Someone please let me know how it turns out, though, OK?

Steve ...

Been there ... done that ... puked on the T-shirt ... more than seven times ...

His poor liver...

Since y'all mention the liver, Elon ... the largest organ in the body, BTW ... it reminded me of the well-known (among a certain type of folks) phrase of W.C. Fields:

"I'd rather BE a good liver ... than have one ..."

O the U, my all time favorite Fields quote is:
"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no point in being a damn fool about it."

Another favorite of mine is his one that starts out:

"I remember the time I was lost in the wilds of Afghanistan ... "

I've sorta used that excuse more than several times in my version of Life Its Ownself ... (never really got me off the hook, but it stopped the pummeling fer a minute or so ...)
