Hangovers are worth it, I guess

We drink it, shampoo with it, even wash our plates with it. Who doesn't love beer

As a matter of fact, we love beer so much, it has already been battered for centuries. We use beer in every excuse possible. "Oh, I'm sorry I wasn't able to go to your  'Bodybuilders for Hello Kitty Fans Day ', I was drunk...with beer (you don't say)."  We use it as an excuse to act like idiots. "I'm sorry I microwaved your thesis, I was so drunk." It is almost equivalent to 'wife' for the singles. "Oh, I'm sorry. I had to bring my beer to the hospital"

Actually, the one in your hand right now while reading this crappy blog is the world's oldest and most widely consumed alcoholic beverage. It is the third most popular drink after water and tea.

Beer has always been in history. The code of Hammurabi actually has a regulations on bars and taverns. There is actually a goddess of beer, Ninkasi. (You're thinking of changing churches aren't you?) The brewing industry in the present is worth $294.5 billion.

If you come to think of it, what made you puke last night is classier than thou.


  1. Hangovers are worth it?


  2. Mmmmmm beer. :)

    What's your favourite kind? I'm definitely an Alexander Keith's man, though depending on where you are, you may never have experienced it.

    Beer is definitely the nectar of the gods. Mana from heaven, and all that crap.

  3. I drink San Miguel Beer Pale Pilsen, Cerveza Negra which is practically the beer of all beers here in my country. If Homer Simpson's Duff beer existed, I'd probably drink that one too.

  4. Actually not a big fan of beer. I drink it in the summer some when I'm hot (it is mostly & drink it when I go to a ball game but overall I prefer other stuff if I'm going to drink. I surprised beer goes back so must go back even further.



  5. Well, I don't think that I've drank a beer since the 80's but I love the excuses that can be blamed on it's consumption...think I'll keep those handy next time I can't find paperwork which I've misplaced. ;o)

    You've put a smile on my face this Monday morning...I thank you for that!

    Actually, beer is still earlier than wine. Beer was dated back as early as 9000 BC while wine is only dated back to 6000 BC.

    Thanks. telling your friends that you need to take your beer to the hospital makes a lot of sense if your drunk
