A Hearty Swill Salute…

To the English Swillers:

ENGLAND’s massive army of World Cup fans is drinking Germany dry, it emerged yesterday.
Breweries warned beer could run out before the final because of huge demand from our supporters.
In Nuremberg, organisers revealed 70,000 England fans who flooded the city drank 1.2MILLION pints of beer – an average of 17 pints each.
Astonished bar keeper Herrmann Murr said: “Never have I seen so many drink so much in such little time.”
His bar at a fans’ tent in the city ran out after they drained all 32 of his 50-litre (11 gallon) barrels.
Herr Murr calculated Britons were shifting beer at a staggering rate of 200 pints per minute.
City official Peter Murrmann said: “The English proved themselves world champs. They practically drank us dry.”

Gentlemen, you have done us proud.

    Of course, there’s a down side……think of the increased load on the wastewater treatment plants.

    The same thought occured to us at my office, Jeff. I think I’ll pass on this year’s Rhein Wein…

  8. The_Real_JeffS says:

    Mr. Bingley, passing on Rhein Wein should depend on which country urine…..
