Beer is proof God loves us

Letter to the Editor | Thursday, April 10, 2008

Here is a little bit of history on the benefits of drinking for all of the kids out there whining about how alcohol makes you racist:

A bunch of old dudes were sitting around, getting hammered and playing Kings.

“OK Ben Franklin, you’re up: Truth or Dare?”

“Uh, dare.”

“You have to tie a key to this kite and run around outside. Naked.”

Next thing you know, boo ya – electricity. Without electricity, how would Al Gore be able to drive his hybrid car?

Think of all the great discoveries and inventions out there that were probably thought up while drunk: unicycles, deep fried Snickers, hub caps that keep spinnin’ every time I stop, beer bongs, hot air balloons, etc. The list goes on and on. So the next time you are thinking about complaining that some drunk kid threw up on the sidewalk, take a minute and think about the fact this same drunk kid might have just discovered something truly awesome.
