    What kind of beer should they drink?

    Personally I prefer stout but I know most people prefer that yellow stuff so I guess they can go ahead and drink that. I will consent to my tax dollars being spent on whiz for Obama.

    I noticed that there is no option for high gravity lager.
    Perhaps though we oughtn't make too light of such a weighty issue.

    "Near Beer" should have been included in the poll...

    I voted Pilsner, but Pale Lager would be appropriate as well. As matter of fact Pilsner (originally from Czech Plzeň) are pale lagers adapted from Bavarian lagers. The mass-produced US domestic beers are primarily Lagers/Pilsners.

    Ah - another teaching moment! :biggrin:

    Black and Tan is just too racist. How come the black is always on top? Was it like that before Obama took office? And why are they kept separate? And how do they keep the black beer on the top? It always tasted heavier to me, so logically it should have sank to the bottom.

    But then again, after a few few pints, no one cares about such questions. At least, I never did.

    I choose ginger beer - just rely on the placebo effect to have them all singing "Roll Out the Barrel."

    Edit: on second thought, I'm not going to say that.

    I would suggest Chamberlain Pale Ale. Joshua Chamberlain captured superior forces by ordering a bayonet charge when his troops were out of powder and balls. Pretty ballsy move. He was promoted to general and was selected to accept the surrender of Lee's troops at Appomatox. He ordered his troops to salute the passing confederates, and he respected their flags. Pretty classy guy!!!!!!!

    Where did your other post go Jimmy?
  14. Jul 26, 2009 #13
    And why should they both drink the same beer?


    Pit Bull beer is for Ossifer Crowley.

    I couldn't find a picture of Victim Beer...

    So here's a picture of a burgler who drank his victim's beer.
    I guess he can just look at the picture and drink Pit Bull Beer,
    but I think this could be worse than getting arrested.

    It was too close to the edge, so I deleted it.

    You know, I just realized something amazing. Gates single handled brought shame to the first black president of the united states by his bigoted attitude! I wonder if he even stopped to realize this. The fallout for Obama's comments have been harsh from all sides, and all thanks to Henry Gates Jr. He REALLY did a lot more harm than good and is trying to save face by saying "if it can happen to me, it can happen to anybody".

    I take Professor Gates for a 'Stout' drinker. Run your mouth in front of 20 cops and then cry about it as a race issue???? Yeah...definitely Stout.

    Crowley is probably going for a Lager. Strong at the start with just a little aftertaste.

    Obama.... miller lite..............all marketing, no taste, and no substance.
  18. Jul 27, 2009 #17
    I'm sure it'll blow over in a week or two. Obama is rather sensitive to the way people perceive him and has probably already asked Gates to tone it down. I doubt this will ever be anymore than one of those niggling little things that his detractors will add onto a laundry list of petty complaints that they hardly even remember all the details of.

    Bah to the beer.

    They should just smoke a joint and mellow out for a couple of hours. :)

    I just wish the arrest of Gates was caught in episode of Cops :rofl:

    That would be hilarious. I think this beer drinking in the white house is the definition of "acting stupidly".

    I do believe you've nailed it. Are you in marketing?

    I liked the suggestion that they should have a drinking contest.

    President Obama has chosen Bud Lite. No sooner had he done so when Crowley showed up at the White House door and demanded to see the President's birth certificate. Obama said he would go inside to get it and Crowley followed behind. When they got to the kitchen, Gates was already there. Gates doesn't drink beer, but none the less claimed that Bud Lite tastes great. This set Crowley shouting repeatedly in a tumultuous manner that it is less filling. "I'll meet your mama outside" said Crowley. Obama said "This is what happens to black presidents in America". The secret service is confirming Crowley's version of events.
