I'm a total beer geek. In my wallet I have a card proving that I'm a "Certified" beer judge. I had to take a 3-hour essay exam where among other things I compared and contrasted four beer styles with starting gravities above 1.080 and provided example recipes for each. I actually make money lecturing about hombrewing — which I've been doing since I was 18 — at universities around Southern California. I have over 800 bottles of beer in my cellar including what many consider to be the holy grail of the beer world, Westvleteren 12, that a friend hand carried back from Belgium for me. I mention all this because sometimes, even an uber snob like me can from time to time appreciate life's simpler things, like a beer and a shot. It's hard to explain how sad I was when I learned that Chicago's Alcohol Abuse Center (that really was the name of the bar) shuttered their doors because it meant I could no longer partake of their standing order — two Old Styles and two Beams for $7. Jump.
So far we have seriously resisted the urge to have more than one winning Commenter.

It's "The Young and the Restless" for dudes. With mullets.Sure, kinda easy. But comedy gold is comedy gold. Am I wrong? And second, but tied for first, is the always quotable Danio3834 . Being a 51st-stater himself, Danio actually had much to say about Jeremy Clarkson's Canadian minivan holiday , but we're just going to cherry pick the choicest line:
The only thing we have to do up here during the winter is have orgasms in our igloos.Fishing trips, my foot.
