Badtux the Snarky Penguin

In a time of chimpanzees, I was a penguin.

Religious fundamentalists are motivated by the sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is having fun -- and that this must be stopped.

Today is Beer-In-Cans Day

Courtesy of the blogger formerly known as G.D. Frogsdong, I am proud to announce that today is National Beer-In-Cans Day. On this day in 1935, beer was first sold in cans. I will, of course, do my part to celebrate this historic event...

A well-rounded flightless bird is one that has a sense of history.

Owing to where I was raised...there is only one beer that needs, nay cries out to be drunk from a can, and that's Tecate (with lime and salt because that is the only way that one can down that swill).

When I first moved from Texas to Minnesota I found a bar that served Tecate and asked for one...which they served to me in a bottle. I was dumbstruck! "Tecate comes in bottles," I wondered. "How the hell am I pulp my lime on the edge of a frickin' bottle."

Ok...ok. Iron City also requires a can. Does it come any other way?

"Keep fighting for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce." -- Molly Ivins, 1944-2007 "The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men."
