    Mine would be..

    "Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, "It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver." -- Babe Ruth

    That's awesome. I like this one:

    A toss up between:

    1) "I wanna put my dick in it." - Fink

    Or

    2) "I want to freeze it into ice blocks and skate on it and then melt it in the spring time and drink it" - Barry Badrinath aka Barry Badrinath

    Or

    3) The entire script of Beerfest

    Mine was by Ben Franklin- "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

    That is until I googled it to make sure I had correctly and found out it was adapted or misquoted from something he said about wine. Damn it, now I can't wear that effin shirt I bought at GABF!

    • Well ya 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. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, 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. That’s why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    I was the last one left after the nuclear holocaust, eh. The whole world had been destroyed, like U.S. blew up Russia and Russia blew up U.S. and Canada. Fortunately, I had been offworld at the time. There wasn't much to do. All the bowling alleys and dounut shops had been wrecked. So's I spent most of my time looking for beer. -- Bob McKenzie

    Yeah. OK, well, uh, we found, uh, this mouse in a bottle of YOUR BEER, eh. Like, we was at a party and, uh, a friend of ours - a COP - had some, and HE PUKED. And he said, uh, come here and get free beer or, uh, he'll press charges. -- Doug McKenzie
