All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Look at that Beer Belly!

It's summer time and sometimes a bear just needs a beer, or 36.

The bear apparently got into campers’ coolers and used his claws and teeth to puncture the cans. And not just any cans.
“He drank the Rainier and wouldn’t drink the Busch beer,” said Lisa Broxson, bookkeeper at the campground and cabins resort east of Mount Baker.
Fish and Wildlife enforcement Sgt. Bill Heinck said the bear did try one can of Busch, but ignored the rest. The beast then consumed about 36 cans of Rainier.
For those of you who don't know Rainier is the Pabst of the Northwest.  Apparently bears don't drink Bush.  Feel free to add your Bush beer jokes to the comments.

My guess is that the bear was somehow able to tell that the Rainier had a higher caloric content than the Bush.  Bears normally eat the highest calorie food available to them first.  I bet he would have finished off the Bush latter.

    I guess when it came to the Busch, he just couldn't bear it. After all, it's barely beer to begin with.

    Too bad the wildlife guys had to ice the ursa. At least the ending wasn't too grisly.

  2. I think you missed your calling WaterBoy.


  3. WB is a punny guy.

  4. Probably didn't like the Busch because the Anheiser Busch family no longer owns the company. They had it stolen from them by the Brazilians in a hostile takeover. Smart American bear.

    I did not realize Ranier beer was still being made until I saw the series Longmire on Netflix streaming. That was what Sheriff Longmire drank.

    I agree with the Rabbi but +5
