what smelled worse - the beer or the snake?
 
2013-09-05 09:12:29 PM
If you just opened a can of beer and got the one with the snake in it, you deserve something better than a crappy Bud Light for your next can o' suds.
 
2013-09-05 09:34:32 PM
No, no.  Take the case with the snake to the brewery.  Then they'll give you jobs and all the sweet beer you can drink.  I saw it in a documentary.

Well, not  inthe beer. Just  next to the beer.

Bud Light isn't beer. The snake probably improved it.

Yeah, usually these stores involve suing somebody for a bajillion dollars for pain and suffering. I raise a glass to you, snake-in-the-beer dude!!

I'm not sure I would have been able to hold my shiat together if I found a snake in my case of beer.

That's why I only buy cases of beer at Costco.

Oh, the snake was in the BOX. Not in the beer.

Well, that's no fun.

Bud light is a punishment, not a reward.

Wait, is that real? I had a dude at a small bar pour a friend and I a shot out of a bottle with a cobra in it and I had always assumed it was fake.

China has this big thing about dangerous/exotic animals having medicinal qualities.

So yeah, it's real (and a fark classic to boot).

Because of you, i did a quick Wiki:

~snip~

There are two methods of inserting the snake into the alcohol. The maker may choose to simply submerge the snake in the alcohol and seal the bottle, thus drowning the snake. Alternatively, the snake may be put on ice until it passes out, at which point it is then gutted, bled and sewed up. When the viper is thawed and awakens, it will quickly die in an aggressive striking manner, which are what most producers look for. The manufacturer will then put the habu in an ethanol bath for a month to preserve it.[5] To continue the process, the habu is put in a 59% alcohol mix for 40 days and finally put in a 35% awamori mix to prepare for consumption. Removing the intestines of the snake, as in the second method, is thought to decrease the drink's particularly unpleasant smell"

Yikes!

What did the poor guy ever do to deserve a Bud Light. Cruel and unusual!
 
2013-09-06 01:09:19 AM
The article says the dead snake became a talking point.

"Where's the beer?"
"Dude, there was a dead snake in the 12'er!"
"Did it bite you?"

That's about as far as I see a 'dead snake in the beer' talking point going.

My friends dad brought some back from a trip to Vietnam a few years back.  We got good and drunk off of beer before we could muster the courage to each take a shot. I just remember it tasted like soju.  Which means it tasted like formaldehyde.

Why is sex on a boat just like Bud Light?

One when I was a little boy my mother found a piece of cardboard in a can of mushrooms.

Being a bit of a do-gooder and Hall of Justice resident, my mother wrote to the company enclosing the can label and cardboard so that they could have a recall or maybe catch the production issue.

They sent us a couple cases of mushrooms as thanks.

We ate like kings for weeks!
Well we ate like forest dwelling fungus eaters for weeks!
Well we ate a cubic shiateton o canned mushrooms.

Don't think it was IN the beer was it...but just in the pack?

Now a few weeks ago I was finishing up a beer in a pint glass that was sitting on my window sill while I watched TV.  I took the last swig, something kinda brushed my lips....I looked down...

...there was a big ole fat wolf spider IN MY BEER THAT I JUST FINISHED. (wasn't there when I started)

Well, sometimes in the middle of a crappy day you want to duck into a convenience store for a quick tall-boy. I always go to the ghetto / white trash section because all of those 'beers' are higher in alcohol content. As a functioning alcoholic professional on the go, I don't have time to drink two regular beers when one Steel Reserve (and a few breath mints) gets the job done.

On my leisure time I drink real beer.
