The photo shows it was a cheap beer. Dumbass. I wouldn't chase anything less than a Guiness.
 
2002-10-16 09:05:36 AM  
Was the beer OK?

You call this reporting?
 
2002-10-16 09:25:32 AM  
Judging from the spray pattern on the road in the photo, the can's lost too much, she aint gonna make it. I'm terribly sorry.

Hmm. Looks like a Labatt Blue. Eat More Possum, maybe you got better eyes'n me, how do you ID it?

For the record, I would not chase half a can of LB across a highway. Guinness, maybe, but not some Canuck beer.

He had good intentions and a lot of heart, but sometimes you just have no choice but to let the beer go.

Severin: sometimes you just have no choice but to let the beer go.

You are a coward. I am ashamed to be on this message board with you. There is no death more noble than the death that is caused by the liberation and salvation of beer.

How the hell did the beer end up on the freeway in the first place?
 
2002-10-16 02:38:32 PM  
I never let my beer get more than 3 feet away from me at all times.

If he was chasing after a can of Heineken, it would have been a tragedy, but if he was chasing a can of Bud, then he's an idiot.

I feel bad for the beer.

I wonder if anyone got to drink it. :(
 
2002-10-16 04:08:58 PM  
Beer in cans suX0rs. Bottles rulez.
 
2002-10-16 04:08:58 PM  
It's definitely not a Blue, Doctechnical. Of that I am sure.

That make beer god angry. -__-
 
2002-10-16 04:12:46 PM  
Well, at least he was optimistic.
 
2002-10-16 04:13:04 PM  
all that for a busch
 
2002-10-16 04:13:46 PM  
Well, at least he wasn't an alcohol abuser ! Guess this just proves that drinking and driving don't mix...Even if you aren't the one driving...

And it looks like it may have been a can of Busch...

Oh no!

I hope it wasn't Rufus the Stunt Bum.
 
2002-10-16 04:13:55 PM  
Looks somewhat like a Busch, something I wouldn't normally risk my life for. Then again, in these uncertain economic times a beer saved is some sanity retained.

He was chasing a beer? If you're gonna run across a freeway, it better at least be for some pussy


cat.
 
2002-10-16 04:15:08 PM  
It's Busch.
I would have let it go. Down the toilet, I mean, with the rest of the piss.
 
2002-10-16 04:15:21 PM  
Ya know I've heard alcohol impairs judgement

Then again somedays I purposely switch my priorities around where beer becomes way more important than self-preservation.
 
2002-10-16 04:16:07 PM  
Not a good time for a beer run.
That beer gave him the runs.
Bartender: "you want a beer chaser with that?"

/getting the obvious quips out of the way.


Dudes.... that's a Busch 2x4.

Amateurs.

I'll chase a can across the road, but I guarantee you it won't be a BEER can.
 
2002-10-16 04:18:43 PM  
i work for anheuser busch....it is definitely a can of piss...i mean busch.
 
2002-10-16 04:18:44 PM  
Omg! Omg! I just hit a beer, I better give it mouth to mouth and try to save it. Glug, Glug oop's can't save it was already flat.

/tosses it down
 
2002-10-16 04:19:19 PM  
at least he wasn't chasing a half empty can.
 
2002-10-16 04:19:45 PM  
Your Boss. Yes. LOL. Good quips. You are the boss.

Still, I have to respect the man as an optimist. He thought the beer was half-full, not half-empty as reported.
 
2002-10-16 04:20:40 PM  
You're only renting it anyway...Go back to the G.D. store and rent some more...Old Milwaukee,that is.

This guy's a sure bet for the Darwin Awards....
 
2002-10-16 04:21:54 PM  
Busch. ewww
 
2002-10-16 04:22:27 PM  
In the worst development for humanity yet, this guy is still alive.
 
2002-10-16 04:22:42 PM  
why did the beer cross the road?
 
2002-10-16 04:22:58 PM  
I hope the driver gets the death sentence.

"Man hit while chasing half-full beer can across freeway"

"Man slapped while chasing half-naked woman across barroom"

"Man caught while growing half-meter tall hemp plant in back-yard"

"Man fired while doing half-assed job at work"

Man doesnt think half the time.
 
2002-10-16 04:23:33 PM  
Maybe we are looking at this all wrong. Maybe the ass clown was some sort of Environmental nut job who just did not want to litter...yeah right.
 
2002-10-16 04:26:05 PM  
Obviously, his superpowers were weakened by drinking the watered-down beer.

God, I mean if it was a FULL can, that would be different wouldn't it?
 
2002-10-16 04:26:40 PM  
if i could marry a ficticional character, i would marry the honey brown beer god in a heart beat.

followed closely by brak and dr. zoidberg.

may the beer rest in pieces in peace. ;)
 
2002-10-16 04:27:22 PM  
Same shiat happened to me.. there I was, chasing the beer can, and WHAMMO!

2002-10-16 04:27:27 PM  
I applaud the optimism of the headline writer. It could just as easily have been a half empty can of beer.

what??? "Hilarity" did not ensue??? No one would "hit it"??? For Chrissakes, am I still on Fark.com???

He should have hit it so hilarity could ensue.


/pours a little for the fallen Homies.
 
2002-10-16 04:32:12 PM
