Speaking of beer...

Arthur's Creed (the Guinness Prayer!)

We believe in one drink, Guinness the almighty
Makers of cans and bottles
Of all that is drunk and un-drunk
We believe in one brewer, Arthur
The only son of Guinness
Eternally begotten of the hops
Hops from hops, barley from barley
True drink from true drink
Begotten not made
Of one distillery of the Father
Through it all things were made
For us men and our salvation
It comes down from St. James Gate
By the power of the market he became incarnate
And was made a rich man
For our sake we are crucified under Pontious Prices
Bad pints, suffer hagovers and A.A. meetings
On the next day we rise again in accordance
With our scruples and ascend into oblivion
We come again to judge the living and the dead
We believe in one alcoholic beverage
Brewed and bottled under one licence
We acknowledge one Arthur, son of the almighty pint
Conceived in heaven and sold on earth
Blessed is the one drink through one father and many sons
Sold under one label and distributed throughout the world
We look for the resurrection of new drinks
And a cure for hangovers.

The Mouse and the Guinness
Some Guinness was spilled on the bar room floor
As the pub was closed for the night.
Out from his hole crept a wee brown mouse
And stood in the pale moonlight.
He lapped up the brew from upon the floor
And back on his haunches he sat.
And all night long you could hear him roar:
"Bring on the God damn cat!!!"

Well, the cat crept out from behind the bar
And he gobbled up the little brown mouse
And the moral of this story IS:
"Don't ya never have Guinness on the house!"

Men, women and beer
In a current report, scientists for the USDA suggest that men should take a look at their beer consumption, considering the results of a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer.

The theory is that drinking beer makes men turn into women.

To test the finding, 100 men were fed 6 pints of beer each. It was then observed that 100 per cent of the men gained weight, talked excessively without making sense, became overly emotional, couldn't drive, failed to think rationally, argued over nothing and refused to apologize when wrong.

International Beer Joke
A South African, an Aussie & a Londoner were sitting in a pub having a pint of beer.The South African grabs his beer, downs it, tosses his glass into the air, draws a handgun and shoots the glass in mid-air. He grins to the other two, puts the gun on the bar and says "In Souff Efrika we haf so many glasses we nefer drink out of the same glass twice."

The Aussie then downs his beer throws his glass into the air, grabs the gun off the bar, shoots the glass, puts the gun back on the bar and proclaims "Ay mate, in Oz we have so much sand which makes glass really cheap so we too never drink out of the same glass twice."

The Londoner looks at the two of them, finishes his beer, puts the glass down on the bar, picks up the gun, shoots both the Aussie and the South African and says "In London we have so many South Africans and Aussies that we never have to drink with the same ones twice"

More about Beer and hormones
It has been confirmed that beer actually contains small traces of MALE hormones NOT female hormones. To prove this theory, the scientists fed 100 women 12 pints of beer and observed that these women became obsessed with sex but fell asleep long before they could please their partners.

Survival of the Fittest
A herd of buffalo can move only as fast as the slowest buffalo.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 culling 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, we all 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.

Women's Quote of the Day:
"Men are like wine. They all start out like grapes, and it's our job to stomp on them and keep them in the dark until they mature into something with which you'd like to have dinner with."

Men's Counter-Quote of the Day:
"Women are like wine. They all start out fresh, fruity and intoxicating to the mind and then turn full-bodied with age until they go all sour and vinegary and give you a headache."

"It's a shame that the only thing a man can do for eight hours a day is work. He can't eat for eight hours; he can't drink for eight hours; he can't make love for eight hours. The only thing a man can do for eight hours is work."

William Faulkner

The Beer Prayer

Our lager,
Which art in barrels,
Halllowed by thy drink
Thy will be drunk (I will be drunk)
At home as it is in the tavern.
Give us this day our foamy head,
And forgive us our spillages
As we forgive those who spill against us.
And lead us not to incarceration
But deliver us from hangovers.
For thine is the beer, the bitter, the lager

Problems with alcohol...

by Jessie In reply to so Jesse..

My main problem with alcohol (aside from being pregnant and not allowed to drink, is that I can't drink much of it before my joints start to swell. I don't get hangovers, and don't puke, but if I drink enough, my airways will swell shut... kinda takes the fun out of it.

When I'm not pregnant, if I want to drink more than a 12 oz 3.2 beer or glass of wine, I can take an anti-inflammatory like Aleve (but you're not supposed to mix alcohol with those).
