Dialogue of the Day

Tuesday, August 14, 2007

Brewing beer has become a time honored tradition with Noah and I, having replaced what used to be the fine art of attempting to procure our fix of sudsy goodness for free. Now that we actually have money to not only make our own beer but otherwise buy good beer, we are no longer perpetually in search of the proverbial "cheap crap" that dominated our college days. It is along these lines that I am reminded of the immortal McKenzies and their ongoing quest... a quest for "free beer." Nothing mixes quite like beer and law:

Attendant:Well?
Doug: Elsinores.
Bob: Twelve!
Doug: Twenty-four, yeah, twenty-four Elsinore beers.
Attendant: Twenty-four Elsinore! That will be $14.70.
Doug: I believe there will be no charge on this two-four of beer, thank you.
Attendant: Excuse me?
Doug: Ok, uh, we found this mouse in a bottle of Elsinore beer that we bought at your beer store, eh? And we heard that when that happens you get your beer free.
Bob: It's in the Canadian Criminal Code, eh. Like there's legal precedence set in cases in law, eh?
Doug: So, like give us our free beer.
Attendant: You want free beer? Go to the brewery. Now get out of here before I put the two of you in a bottle.
Doug: You sure you don't want to think this over?

"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. "

Lousy mooching McKenzies... always looking for a free beer.

That reminds me... Smitty, can I "sample" one of those Imperial Stouts upon completion?

Smitty 2:05 PM  

Yeah. About 3 or 4 more weeks of bottle conditioning and they'll be ready.

Ha... Good stuff. But it does beg the question of why they'd go back and order the same beer that they claimed to have found a mouse in.

Also, FYI, there's a kind of Chinese wine that actually is supposed to have head mice in it. I forget what it's actually called so let's just call it "mouse wine."

B Mac 8:22 PM  

I believe that particular vintage is called Hui Chow Sun, which translates to "Boone's Farm"

Great movie, which was ruined for me when I watched it with a bunch of English majors that constantly pointed out the references to Hamlet.

Chinese mice wine? I supppose that is better than Chinese lead wine, or Chinese solvent wine.

Indeed, they sure seem to be quite industrious poisoning our toys, pet food, and environment. Rickey advises keeping a close eye on the Chinese. They're coming.
