We are still alive!!! Despite a prolonged absence, we are alive and well. It takes a lot of work to keep our fans entertained, and to be honest, we are the laziest fuckers you will ever meet. That, and the fact that we have 3 members who are retarded and only 2 who are functionally literate, and you can see how this is such a chore. We are basically no smarter than a hoard of howler monkeys

Canadian Night

In honor of the Olympics, Snake offered to host a Canadian night. Name some Canadian beers... can you name more than 5? There really aren't that many out there, and unfortunately, Unibroue makes more than anyone else. We started with the Unibroue Terrible (10.5%). This Quebec Dark Ale was better than some of the crap they pass off as beer. It was very carbonated, dark, yet not too heavy. It rated a good. Maybe Unibroue has redeemed itself. Moosehead Lager (5.0%), Canadas oldest brewery, was next. This one tasted like it was brewed a hundred years ago. How in the hell did they get that skunk smell into the bottle? So/so, and that was being generous. Labatts Blue Import (5.0%) was supposed to be one of Canada's best beers. It was a good clean pilsner, but those bastard Canadians cheated us by bottling only 11.5 oz, versus 12. We chased this beer with a Unibroue La Fin Du Monde (9%). I was surprised to find this beer to be pretty good. It had plenty of carbonation and sweetness. It rated a good. The next beer was another Unibroue that was more in keeping with what we've come to expect from this brewery. Don de dieu (9%) which means "tastes like shit" in french, had a cidery taste and rated a so/so. And to finish the evening, we ended in style with an Arrogant Bastard Ale (7.2%) from Stone Brewery. This is a strong ale with attitude, but we are worthy. This beer had good initial bite, but ended well. It rated a good. And so ended another BC4M.

ADDENDUM: I think we may have been too hard on Canada in the post above. We may need those weiners at some point, so I would like to make ammends by listing all the good thinks Canada has produced (besides beer, of which they have had very little success): Pam Anderson; the Canadian Women's Curling Team; Neve Campbell; Sarah McLachlan; Shania Twain. They've also produced some real douchebags... such as: Alex Trebek; Allan Thicke; Keifer Sutherland; Paul Schaffer; Morley Safer; Keanu Reeves; Jason Priestly; and Brian Adams.I guess it all balances out in the end
