A bit of hilarity

Drinkers of Bugweiser and Michelob are apparently figuring out what drinkers of real beer have known for decades; Anheuser-Busch makes a pretty watery brew, as do most mass market American brewers.  The big mistake they make, though, is in concentrating on the alcohol content instead of the hops and malt--what gives beer its taste.

And so in honor of the world's largest brewer, a joke lifted from Cold Fusion Guy.

There's a big conference of beer producers. At the end of the day, the presidents of all beer companies decide to have a drink in a bar.

The president of 'Budweiser' orders a Bud, the president of 'Miller' orders a Miller Lite, Adolph Coors orders a Coors, and the list goes on. Then the waitress asks Arthur Guinness what he wants to drink, and much to everybody's amazement, Mr. Guinness orders a Coke!

"Why don't you order a Guinness?" his colleagues ask.


"Naah. If you guys won't drink beer, then neither will I."

Seriously, it's been my contention for nearly 25 years that if people drank things that had discernible taste, the amount of drunkenness would plunge.
