Why do Canadians put skunk pee in all of their beer?
 
2005-04-05 04:47:14 PM
Also, "It's not a fashion show; it's an emergency!"
 
2005-04-05 04:48:34 PM
Oh the humanity! Won't someone please think of the beer?

"I had a tear in my eye, actually, when I was watching it,"

I bet those tears don't flow as you're hacking down pot plants. Farking hypocrite.


I fail to see the hypocrisy here. Pot is illegal, beer is not.

The decriminalization never covered growing or dealing only having small amounts. Besides the bill died when the goverment changed from the last election. The chances of it getting retabled are pretty slim.

mmmmmmm...mix about 1/3 Lemonaid and 2/3 pale ale or a very light weisen (heffeweisen is too heavy)...mmmmmm...great summer time drink.

Don't know how to spell it, but they call it something that sounds like "ein rattler" in Germany. Not bad. Much better than the other weird beer drink I had there which was dark beer mixed with Coca Cola. Yuk.
 
2005-04-05 04:53:03 PM
They just had to point out it was a woman driving didn't they?
 
2005-04-05 04:54:11 PM
Woo-hoo! White Gold!
 
2005-04-05 04:55:28 PM
But they forgot the most important information. Is there more beer already on it's way to Ontario?

The drink you reference is called a "Radler" which is a half-and-half of weisse beer and lemonade. Where I lived outside Stuttgart, they had what they called a Berliner weisse which came in red or green and was a young, sour weisse beer with some kind of nasty, sweet syrup in it. I only had one of those before heading back for the starke, dunkel and alt bier.

Firefighters helped the experienced female driver climb out of the smashed tractor-trailer.

experienced... does that mean she's experienced at overturning semi's?
 
2005-04-05 04:57:40 PM
Obviously the accident was alcohol related.

/That's a lot of open containers!

Stock up, if you thought gas prices were high, wait for the great canadian beer shortage to hit.


/Bob and Doug haven't showed up yet?
 
2005-04-05 05:05:53 PM
I too am touched by the many a beer dying in vain.
 
2005-04-05 05:07:19 PM
Heh.. I was the guy who brought straws to the scene of the accident. I'm so hung over now...
 
2005-04-05 05:07:21 PM
I've been saying it for five years and I'll keep saying it until something is done about it. FARK NEEDS A 'HWY SPILL' TAG
 
2005-04-05 05:17:59 PM
I wasn't sad until I found out it was a good IPA. Those poor hops all went to waste.
 
2005-04-05 05:18:29 PM
Pretty well-done for a fake news story.
 
2005-04-05 05:27:37 PM
my dad found a budweiser truck once that tipped and spilled. He packed the trunk full. :)

wish i could have been there for this one.

Maybe she's experienced in being 'helped' by firemen..
 
2005-04-05 05:31:59 PM
My beer! You never had a chance to become my urine.
 
2005-04-05 05:32:36 PM
Might I just take this moment to point out that Keith's is not an India Pale Ale. It may be labeled as such, but it is not.

It is still, however, a fine and tasty brew.
 
2005-04-05 05:35:24 PM
The Keith Brewery tour is oh so much fun, they'll getcha buzzin with a couple pints and then spill your ass onto the fine streets of Halifax right near a pub,.. Good times, great people..

cheers...


I envy you. In a good way.

Fake news story? I suppose these are all Photoshopped, eh? (link pops)
 
2005-04-05 05:40:58 PM
Overturned beer truck... that's alcohol abuse!
 
2005-04-05 05:43:30 PM
Amusing?

Sounds rather to me.

Ok, the headline quote did make me laugh, but still. We're talking about a truck full of beer here.
 
2005-04-05 05:45:30 PM
"Another tractor trailer was sent to the scene to see if any of the beer could be recovered."

I read that as "Another tractor trailor went to the scene to see if any of the beer could be recovered"

I thought, "My, that was thoughtful of him."

Why do Canadians put skunk pee in all of their beer?

Actually, it's called "alcohol." American beer doesn't have it.

/ducks
 
2005-04-05 06:01:07 PM
Are the Hostess pretzels cream-filled?
 
2005-04-05 06:06:34 PM
Loose_Electron

I meant the story as written (and the site itself) is a fake story. (The quotes, etc.) Accident probably did happen.
 
2005-04-05 06:25:07 PM
I assure you that, while not an exemplary news source, the Halifax Daily News and hfxnews.com are both very real.

/Drinking a Keith's as a memorial.
 
2005-04-05 06:38:36 PM
That is a great story.

If only the local American 'news' would write stories like that, I'd buy all the local papers.

If, indeed it is fake, then bravo to the faker. If, it is indeed real, I call for a moment of silence for the beer that never had a chance to become pee.

Now, if the headline read "43,000 bottles of BHK's beer were spilled", I'd *really* be crying.
 
2005-04-05 06:46:01 PM
I can just imagine that crazy Scotsman in the Keith's ads running about making wee neck braces out of napkins.
 
2005-04-05 06:52:27 PM
a truckload of beer flips over where i was born...and to top it off, it was heading to where i live. GRRR!
 
2005-04-05 07:00:22 PM
ON ITS WAY TO MEET ME?!


NOOOOOOOOO!

THE PRIIIIDE OF NOVA SCOOOOTIA!
 
2005-04-05 07:07:00 PM
well the quotes are real.. Mark Hoebeck(sp?) police spokesguy oft quoted here in halifax..
this reminds me of a joke
What is the similarity between two people having sex in a canoe and american beer?

They are both farking close to water.....
 
2005-04-05 07:12:40 PM
good lord i love living in nova scotia

keiths is delicious
and i live about 5 mins from where that happened
 
2005-04-05 07:22:17 PM
I got some beer that way once.
 
2005-04-05 07:38:05 PM
Maffick, Pot was decriminalized under Jean Chretien, but then that action was reversed when Paul Martin took power. Many say that since Jean Chretien was sure he was going out anyways, he did this simply to piss off the conservatives in the country.

/there aren't many conservatives in Canada
//screw you Paul Martin
///Go NDP.

meshman, Speaking of hypocrisy, this guy seems to be an activist against drugs and violence, though he has no problem working for a beer company, even though alcohol is perhaps the #1 cause of domestic violence, at least in the United States. Nice shirt, douchebag.

Pam
You know how to handle one of those big rigs?

Bob
Geez, it's a ten speed...[Doug thumps him.]

Doug
Yeah, sure, of course. Like, we drive them all the time.

Pam
Well take off, eh?

[Bob and Doug run for the truck]

Bob
You're lying, eh?

Doug
It's ok, don't worry. Just trust me.

Bob
You're lying.

Doug
Just come here, I want to talk to you.

Bob
You're just tricking me.

Doug
Come here...

Bob
If you sucker me in...

Doug
[grabs Bob] You take right off!

Bob
I knew you'd sucker me in! You don't know how to drive this thing!

Doug
I do so! It's just a ten speed, that's 5 speed times two!

Bob
We're going to crash! We're going to be in the water again!

Doug
Take off! We are not going to crash, eh? There's no way I'll crash
this, this is a beer truck, eh?

How do you know the t-shirt didn't come free with the purchase of a case of beer?

i'll take a Weyerbacher (anything they make) over just about any European beer. the real american breweries tend to do extremely well in international beer competitions. most of the big european and canadian brands aren't much better than the big american brands. i'll take a labatt or warsteiner over a budweiser (not the czech stuff), but not by much.
