  2. DAM! That is bit too strong

  3. …I applied to work there a long time ago, but they kind of cooled on me when I told them I didn’t drink.

    …which was OK because I kind of cooled on THEM when they said they didn’t give overtime…

  4. I think this guy might have polished off a couple bottles by himself.

    Police work can be entertaining
    as well as dangerous.

    Recently, a female sheriff’s deputy arrested Patrick Lawrence, a 22 year old white male, who was fornicating with a pumpkin in the middle of a field at night.

    The next day, at the Gwinnet County (GA) courthouse, Lawrence was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, public indecency and public intoxication.

    The suspect explained that he was passing a pumpkin patch on his way home from a drinking session when he decided to stop.

    He explained: “…as there was no one around for miles, or at least I thought there was no one around…”

    Lawrence went on to say that he pulled over to the side of the road, picked out a pumpkin that he felt was appropriate to his purpose, cut a hole in it, and proceeded to satisfy his pressing need.

    “Guess I was really into it, y’know?” he commented with evident embarrassment.

    In the process of doing the deed, Lawrence failed to notice an approaching sheriff’s car and was unaware of his audience until Deputy Brenda Taylor approached him.

    “It was an unusual situation, that’s for sure,” said Deputy Taylor.

    “I walked up to Lawrence and he’s just humping away at this pumpkin.”

    Deputy Taylor went on to describe what happened when she approached Lawrence … “I said: Excuse me Sir, but do you realize that you’re having sex with a pumpkin?”

    He froze and was clearly very surprised that I was there, and then he looked me straight in the face and said: “A pumpkin? Is it midnight already?”

    The court (and the judge) could not contain their laughter.

    Lawrence was found guilty only of public intoxication, fined $10 and sent on his way.

    The Washington Post wrote an article describing this as “The best come-back line ever.”

  5. My husband won’t buy Sam Adams beer and I don’t like beer, so no broken hearts here. Sam was a patriot but his namesake company, not so much.

    “6.The Oddest Yeast Strain in a Beer

    Plenty of brewers claim to put a little bit of themselves in their bottles, but only Rogue Ale’s The Beard Beer (which we covered back in September) takes that idea so literally. As the name implies, the beer is created thanks to a beard—specifically, the beard of the company’s master brewer, John Maier. The company was looking for a new source of yeast when someone joked Maier’s beard might be a perfect place to grow yeast. Sure enough, the beard can grow yeast—and quite great yeast, in fact, created from the over 15,000 brews Maier happened to be present for.”

  8. joe6pak,
    We had a guy around here recently that was caught in the middle of the day having sex with a miniature horse in a pasture. Those who witnessed it called the police and he was arrested, and his excuse was that he bought a coke at the store and it must have been spiked because he didn’t remember driving down the road and seeing a horse and getting out and having sex with it.
    Must have been some hell of drugs that make you see a horse out in a pasture while driving down the road and think it sure looks like something you’d jump on.

    There he was, minding his own damn business, when she invaded his privacy…

  10. I like Sam Adams beers. I’m curious enough about this to try it.
    How curious? $200+ for 750ml curious?

    I’ll stick with stouts that weigh in at 9-18% and don’t require a second mortgage.

  11. If you like the taste of beer why does it have to have alcohol in it and why is the more the alcohol the better? Why not throw out the beer and just drink straight alcohol?

    joe6pak,
    “We had a guy around here recently that was caught in the middle of the day having sex with a miniature horse in a pasture.”…This reminds me of an ER story I heard once, where the doctor related a visit to the ER by a young man with a badly macerated, partly avulsed penis. The doctor staunched the bleeding and summoned a plastic surgeon, and interviewed the man about how it happened.

    Apparently he, too, found a full-sized filly a bit TOO attractive, but he had chosen the Northern route instead of the Southern route, without even the benefit of coating his member with anything a horse might actually WANT in its mouth. His words were something like “I tried to make the horse do something she didn’t want to do”. Given the broad, flat teeth of a horse, the grinding motion a horse’s jaw is designed to do, and the power of the animal, the doctor was amazed that he had anything left to repair…

  14. Best comeback ever:

    Soldier – “Hey sweetie, wanna sit on my face?”
    Woman – “Why, is your nose bigger than your dick?”

    “…Recently, a female sheriff’s deputy arrested Patrick Lawrence, a 22 year old white male, who was fornicating with a pumpkin in the middle of a field at night.”

    …I don’t see a TIME of the incident. He SHOULD go with the “Disney Defense” and claim that it was a beautiful princess up until midnight, then THIS shit happened…

    …after he gets out, I bet he’ll dedicate his life to hunting down the Fairy Godmother(s) who thought that was FUNNY…

  17. It’s not illegal to sell in Georgia, it just can’t be sold as beer. Our alcohol tax system sets limits on the % ABV for beer, wine and spirits. Alcohol= Evil. More Evil = More State payola.

    This can be sold (after proper taxes are levied) as a spirit.

  18. OK, I just called the closest Total Wine to me, an hour away. They got 10 bottles in this morning, have seven left. I can get to town tomorrow. I’ll report back.

  19. I said I’d report back. On a scale of 1-10 I’m giving it a 9.375. It lost points for expense and having had to drive an hour to the store that had it. Otherwise it was really good. It’s not carbonated, served at room temperature, in a port type of snifter. It has a unique taste and aftertaste, something similar to a portwhiskeycogniac. Stronger than port, but not as strong as cogniac. I bought one as a present for my son and as a result I was given a couple small glasses. I’m tempted to buy one for myself just to see if I still like it.
