Email Forwards & Beer

In general, I despise email forwards. If you forward me a mass of information which tells me I will have a lucky day, win one million dollars, or cure cancer if I only forward this to 10 more people, I will block you from my email (no special treatment if you family members).

For as much as I hate forwards - they exist. Emails exist, popular culture exists, and both exist together. If beer exists, so do beer jokes, beer commentary, beer quotes, and beer forwards.

So, for this "welcome to your weekend" post, I present you with a forward about beer - a series of beer quotes sent to me by my parents, who are not blocked from my email inbox...sorry mom and dad!

Fw: Beer Theories

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 didn't drink this beer, they might be out of  work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, "It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

> Babe Ruth

"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day."

> Lyndon B. Johnson

"When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading."

> Paul Horning

"When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we  fall asleep, we commit no sin When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven!"

> George Bernard Shaw

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

> Benjamin Franklin

"Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer.
Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza."

> Dave Barry

One night at Cheers, Cliff Clavin explained the" Buffalo Theory" to his  buddy Norm:

"Well, ya see, Norm, 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.
