I've also seen the same story using Pepsi instead of Budweiser, neither are true.

ETA: oh this one has BOTH...I guess it's been embellished since the last time someone emailed it to me.

Ok, Ok, I should have checked snopes first. It is indeed false just as I suspected.

I knew it was too good to be true!

It just is, never question it.

The first half sounds plausible to me, I would like to think its true.

Snopes COULD be wrong you know

Unlikely.

They do eleventybillion times the research into these things than the original writers did.
