Sunday greetin’s, GN!

Possibly of interest to TeX, Sven and Paddy:

A heavy metal music festival in Germany constructed a 4-mile long beer pipeline to more efficiently serve beverages to its guests.

What an age we live in!

The festival said both fresh and waste water will also run through the pipes and staff will maintain the pipeline’s hygiene at all times.

[Insert “beer rental” joke here]

A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

Fatwa -- I read that article, yesterday. It reminded me of when the local major sports stadium was renovated, several decades ago. This was back when most stadiums offered two choices in beer -- one from a mass-market brewer and that brewer’s light “beer”. The stadium built a central, refrigerated keg repository and installed piping to all the locations where beer was sold. The system worked great, except for the problems. It took two kegs just to fill the pipeline. What do you do with the beer that’s been sitting, unrefrigerated in that pipeline for one or more days? The system didn’t last long.

Hai, Paddy!

I can’t imagine why warm, flat, stale beer would be a problem. Especially at $7.00 (or whatever the outrageous stadium price was at that time) per cup.

I like this…because I’m a hateful person.

Hai, Sven and Mac!

What if mayonnaise were to self-identify as BBQ sauce?

*Snort*

I remember the first time I “helped” Dad open a canned ham when I was about 7. Had a hard time turning the key, of course. Got really grossed-out by the jelly; Dad explained why it was put in the can.

Dad explained why it was put in the can.

To keep Jooooos from being tempted?

If so, I can attest that it was quite ineffective.

Ham > gefilte fish
Bacon > boiled chicken
Smoked pulled pork > kishke
