I first posted this article on January 28, 2009 and it’s still so popular I thought we would stroll back into…
A Boston pub where two regulars are engrossed in a very unusual conversation about intelligence.
Norm throws his hands up, “C’mon Cliff, you’re telling me that a herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo? And when the herd is hunted it’s the slowest and weakest ones that are taken out first?”
“In other words” Norm continues, “this is good for the herd because it improves the speed and health of the whole group. It’s like survival of the fittest.”
Cliff shakes his head, “Right. Just like drinking too much alcohol kills brain cells. The slow and weak cells are attacked first, which means regular consumption of beer keeps eliminating the weaker brain cells and that makes the brain faster and more efficient.”
Customers Norm and Cliff
“Hey” Norm lit up, “that means I don’t have to be frugal about downing a few brewskies … the more the better actually.”
“There ya go,” Cliff smirked. “One always feels smarter after a few beers.”
Time to change the subject…
May Your Glass Always Be Half Full
