Pretty funny. Best song that took five minutes to write I've heard in quite a while.

You know Foster's is actually brewed in Canada? Yeah, they do that so they can ship it in to the US free (thanks, NAFTA) and still put "imported" on the bottle.

It's how I fill a Friday about 3:00 when the kids aren't listening to the lesson anyway.

And just to make it even more interesting, no one in Australia drinks Fosters.
The beer was doing so badly in Australia, the only way to boost sales was to export it overseas....It was a marketing ploy, and you guys fell for it!

It's only because of our deep respect for all things Australian--and the fact that none of us has a clue what something Australian actually is.

For some odd reason, given my love for all things beer, I never tried Foster's. Now I'm glad I didn't.

Well, it's probably best in its category....but its category includes Bud Light and Keystone.

Not a bad peace meditation.  Unfortunately, I guess the news never hit Oz about the lifting of the ham-ban, which makes this guy's approach obsolete:

JERUSALEM—Ending a strict, six-millennia prohibition of the consumption of cloven-hoofed beasts, the World Rabbinical Council announced Tuesday that Jews worldwide may "dig in to the delicious taste of ham."...
