Don't know if this is true or not, but I really liked the story.

The Budweiser Story (not a joke) This is TRUE!

How Budweiser handled those who laughed at those who died on the 11th of September, 2001...Thought you might like to know what happened in a little town north of Bakersfield, California.

After you finish reading this, please forward this story on to others so that our nation and people around the world will know about those who laughed when they found out about the tragic events in New York, Pennsylvania, and the Pentagon.

On September 11th, a Budweiser employee was making a delivery to a convenience store in a California town named McFarland. He knew of the tragedy that had occurred in New York when he entered the business to find the two Arabs, who owned the business, whooping and hollering to show their approval and support of this treacherous attack.

The Budweiser employee went to his truck, called his boss and told him of the very upsetting event! He didn't feel he could be in that store with those horrible people. His boss asked him, "Do you think you could go in there long enough to pull every Budweiser product and item our beverage company sells there? We'll never deliver to them again." The employee walked in, proceeded to pull every single product his beverage company provided and left with an incredible grin on his face.?He told them never to bother to call for a delivery again. Budweiser happens to be the beer of choice for that community. Just letting you know how Kern County handled this situation.

And Now The Rest Of The Story:
It seems that the Bud driver and the Pepsi man are neighbors. Bud called Pepsi and told him. Pepsi called his boss who told him to pull all Pepsi products as well!!! That would include Frito Lay, etc. Furthermore, word spread and all vendors followed suit! At last report, the store was closed indefinitely. Good old American Passive-Aggressive ### Whoopin!

Pass this along, America needs to know that we're all working together!

If you can read this... thank a teacher... if you are reading it in English..THANK A SOLDIER!!!
God Bless America !!

Can I still pretend like it happened?

There is always people who have to ruin a happy ending for the others.

If you watch some of the Budweiser commercials, you will still feel really good about the company.

The ones with troops returning in the airport are really great, and they made one or two after 9/11 that were amazing, but I think they only aired them for a little while.

Oh well, it is nice to pretend for a few moments that something like this could still actually happen in the country.

<sigh>

The Bush family has been very strong supporters of the shooting sports.

If you ever read an email which reads...

"After you finish reading this, please forward this story on to others so that..."

You can pretty much count on it being B.S.

I drink Bud Lite. :shrug:


I refuse to drink the swill that most college people/high school people call "beer".

That includes:
Any Coors
Any Busch
Any Keystone
Any Natural




Bud Lite is as cheap as I go.

BS story, but in a real setting, I'd have called the police for stealing MY beer from MY store.
