    Beer In The Faucet!!

    Found this in the paper yesterday.... :lol:

    Weird News: Beer flows like water in Norway
    The Associated Press

    OSLO, Norway — It almost seemed like a miracle to Haldis Gundersen when she turned on her kitchen faucet and found the water had turned into beer.

    Two flights down, employees and customers at the Big Tower Bar were horrified when water poured out of the beer taps.

    By an improbable feat of clumsy plumbing, someone at the bar in Kristiandsund, in western Norway, had accidentally hooked the beer hoses to the water pipes for Gundersen’s apartment.

    “We had settled down for a cozy Saturday evening, had a nice dinner, and I was just going to clean up a little,” Gundersen, 50, said Monday. “I turned on the kitchen faucet and beer came out.”

    Gundersen said the beer was flat and not tempting, even in a country where a half-pint can cost about $3.75 in grocery stores.

    Per Egil Myrvang of the local beer distributor said he instructed bartenders by telephone how to reconnect the pipes.

    “The water and beer pipes do touch each other, but you have to be really creative to connect them together,” he said.

    Gundersen joked about having the pub send up free brew for her next party.

    “But maybe it would be easier if they just invited me down for a beer,” she said.

    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.
