From a compilation of crazy-ass Cosmo quotes SWSBO sent me:

"37. Give him a beer facial the combination of the egg white and the yeast in the hops hydrates and improves skin elasticity... but you can just tell him that your lips can't resist his delicious, beer-flavored face."

Most likely the book wasn't published anywhere near that time, and I am also pretty sure if it was, the book has had an update and/or revision since that time(the early 1900s?). So no it's still wrong. This is supposed to be researched and scholarly work and that definition isn't near current or correct. So yes it IS funny. Don't let him knock you, some people like to pull this type of stuff, drawing on antiquated material from beer history, to sound like they know something, and make these ridiculous types of corrections. Makes them feel smart or something. "Well actually it used to be blah blah," Well it ISN'T now so no still wrong. We had a few throw downs in this thread over this type of thing already... I remember a nightmare of something about an archaichly phrased book??
