I was in Europe last year and had a good look at the €1 coin. Whats going on with Sweden? Without Norway, Sweden effectively becomes the cock and balls of Europe!
The Shit Eating Grin or S.E.G is a funny thing. From Wiktionary;
Simon Baker (or Simon Denny as he was once known) seems to pull it off really well. Why does he always come across as a smug bastard. I’m sure he is a nice chap in real life. He just has habit of playing characters who happen to be dickheads.
These girls who are members of a Ukrainian woman’s movement are protesting after being referred to as ‘Feminist whales’. The irony is that I look straight past the swastikas and Hitler mustaches and focus straight on their tits. Kind of defeats the purpose doesn’t it. Also, as they come from the Ukraine, I thought they would be more concerned about a potential Russian invasion than being called names!
Recently PIUTW highlighted the devastation caused to Queensland by flooding. Of concern was that beer supplies to far north Queensland would be cut off which would ultimately lead to riots. Anyway the worst has happened and beer supplies are critically short. To meet demand, XXXX has sent a special container shipment of 50000 cases or some 500000 liters of beer north to plug the shortfall. With rail and overland infrastructure cut off due to flooding, transport via sea is the only option which remains.
Other restaurants including McDonald’s have had to restrict their menu’s as produce is simply not available due to the impact of the floods. McDonald’s have reportedly flown in a plane full of lettuce so their reduced offerings will still meet nutritional standards. This air shipment of a low value item of lettuce is also reported to have cost over $50000.
You can read a serious account of these shortages here.
Oprah seems to be having a nice time down here in Australia. Besides forcing her US based opinions regarding golliwogs on our more tolerant nature, she has also been sampling some of Australia’s laid back lifestyle including the attendance of a bogan BBQ.
“But Winfrey fitted right in, noshing on tabouleh, chicken kebabs and salads – all washed down with a can of VB”
Doesn’t sound very Aussie to me. Where are the sausages, steak and proper real keg? To be fair the BBQ is a shining example of our of some of our ethnically diverse community, but VB? Really Oprah WTF.
Anyway as I am lazy and didn’t have long to think of anyone to award the honour to, I am bestow the title upon the CAMRA forum Oracle, Richard English. A quick glimpse over the CAMRA forums is all that is required to work out why.
Congratulations Dickie, You are the Friday Fuckwit.
Skittles is a weird game that was once played in pubs around England. Now its a past time enjoyed by old guys at CAMRA beer festivals. Former PIUTW contributor Pigman recently went to the UK and sent me this picture of the guy who organises the Skittles at the Ealing Beer Festival. Here Pigman is pictured with the weird beard. This guy doesn’t believe in modern technologies such as razors, soap, extraneous carbon dioxide and refrigeration, but will happily wear a headset to broadcast to the world he enjoys medieval pub games. Nice work champ!
Thanks Pigman for the photo.
The mugshot to the left of this text is Melva Ann Wixon, 49 of St. Petersburg. Melva was recently arrested on a domestic battery charge after a dispute involving beer which occurred in her apartment. Now I have heard of Stella being referred to as ‘wife beater’ before but this incident takes the cake.
“Cops say she’d been drinking at a bar before going home to the apartment she shares with her boyfriend, Eric Hartman. He was sleeping — until she poured beer on him.
Seems Wixon was in a lather because her boyfriend plans to move to Ohio. After she poured beer on him, he wasn’t a happy camper either. He called the cops. Wison went to jail.
Now she really has something to brew about...”
So basically this Hartman chap got his balls in a twist ’cause his Missus tipped some beer on him? Only in the US would this be considered assault. Surely the cops have better things to do than deal with morons such as these fools?
Today just gets better. It turns out that kids in the USA are beerhounds. This four year old kid got pissed on a can of beer, stole his neighbours Christmas presents and then went for a walk down the street. God Bless the silly season!

This website was originally established in early 2008 to document every new beer I drank in that year. Over time it morphed to an observational showcase of the weird people that the beer world draws to it. Now it's where I post beer related bits and pieces. Enjoy.
