Thanks for the article! I can't help but hear Ron Burgundy saying "It's science!" (without the part about women's brains being a third the size of men's.)

Yes because before civilization there were no taxes, no debt, women did all the work, men hunted and fished all day and made love all night. The only reason somebody would destroy such a fine social system is for something better and that is a social system with beer.

"Radical Brewing" has a hilarious take on the subject.

Now if we can just get the jokers over at FoxNews to shut up and have a beer maybe we can return to being a civilized society again.

Wag more. Bark Less. Have a beer.

I know. If only they would realize, like MSNBC does, that there is only one side to a story.

Beer is a health food. You can't get diseases from it. Therefore, health food. I told my doctor. She was strangely skeptical.
