Re: Jim Beam..... Noooooo

OH SHIIIIIIIIiiiiiii. That's a real disaster!

"There's a fire on and the whiskey truck can't get through!"
"What!?"
"You're joking?"


Remember that commercial with the beer truck? That was good for a laugh. That was a Ford commercial too!

No car ATM but I am looking at one...
I don't want to say which one otherwise someone else might buy it!

I saw this on the late news last night. Very heartbreaking. $12 million worth apparently.

They reckoned it was caused by a lightning strike?!?!

Damn shame about all that bourbon, but....lightning!
I thought that was quite funny for some reason! :s6:

Why, bourbon is 20 times better than vodka!

Here's the link to the article;

Let's hope is was white label, not black. Starting fires is about all white label is good for.

I cried when I saw it on the news...all that bourbon gone....was one mean fire though. Now they'll have to age more barrells so there might be a shortage of Beam soon.
Guess I'll just have to go out and stock up enough to see me through the lean time.
