Chicken Soup for Beer Drinkers

“Sometimes when I reflect back 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. Then I say to myself, “It
is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be
selfish and worry about my liver.” – Jack Handy
“I feel sorry for people who don’t drink. When they wake up in the morning,
that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day.” – Frank Sinatra
“An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk in order to spend time
with his friends.” – Ernest Hemingway
“When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.” – Henry
“24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.” –
Stephen Wright
“When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we
fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
Sooooo, let’s all get drunk and go to heaven!” – Brian O’Rourke
“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” – Benjamin
“Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is
beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the
wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.” – Dave Barry
Remember “I” before “E”, except in Budweiser.
To some it’s a six-pack, to me it’s a Support Group.
And, saving the best for last, as explained by Cliff Clavin, of Cheers.
One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff Clavin was explaining the Buffalo Theory to
his buddy Norm. Here’s how it went: “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.”

The ABSOLUTE WORST things to say to a Police Officer

Sorry, Officer, I didn’t realize my radar detector wasn’t plugged in.

Hey, you must’ve been doin’ about 125mph to keep up with me! Good job!

That uniform makes you look really big.

Excuse me. Is “stick up” hyphenated?

I thought you had to be in relatively good physical condition to be a Police Officer.

You don’t happen to have any beer in your car?

I was going to be cop, but I decided to finish high school instead.

Your not gonna check the trunk, are you?

“Lets do it different this time… I will give you the breathalyzer test, now stick this in your mouth and blow”

Did you happen to attend the “Barney Fife” Police Academy?

I can’t reach my license unless you hold my beer.

When you smack me up, make sure you smile pretty for the camcorder

I bet I could grab that gun before you finish writing my ticket

Is it true that people become cops because they are too dumb to work at McDonalds?

I pay your salary!

So, uh, you on the take, or what?

Those sirens are hurting my ears, turn them off or I am not speaking to you.

So what if I was speeding, whatcha gonna do about it Mr. Hotshot?

Gee,officer! That’s terrific. The last officer only gave me a warning, too!

Do you know why you pulled me over? Okay just so one of us does.

I was trying to keep up with traffic. Yes I know there is no other car around, that’s how far they are ahead of me.

So, are you still crabby because your mamma didn’t let you play with your gun when you were little?

Sorry I can’t hear you over the radio. No I am not turning it down, I love this song. Either speak up or just leave me alone.

What do you mean have I been drinking? Your the trained specialist.

Well, when I reached down to pick up my bag of crack, my gun fell off my lap and got lodged between the brake pedal and gas pedal, forcing me to speed out of control.

Hey is that a 9 mm? That’s nothing compared to this .44 magnum.
