I'd Like to Buy the World a Rum and Coke (not an actual offer)

Come join some of us Liberal Drinkers tonight as we work on perfecting Cliff Clavin's famous buffalo theory:

"Well you see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo and 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 killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive drinking of alcohol 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. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers."


Kind of makes you want to buy the whole country a beer, doesn't it?

We did pretty well last night. We were two points away from placing, and considering how few we actually missed this time around, I couldn't imagine the winners beating us by much more than five points.

Rum and Coke? Egads! That's not a real drink.

If you're mixing it with Coke, make mine a bourbon. Kentucky bourbon, please, none of that Canadian stuff.

I am all for the Buffalo Theory now. But I still say, if my suggestion for Guam was taken seriously, we would have won. Well, third place that is. ;-)

De gustibus non disputandum est.

Cuba Libre!

Make mine with very dark rum (Myers) and don't spare the lime.
