The Best Quote EVER!!! And a Good TV show too

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

Benjamin Franklin

I know that sometimes false quotes are attributed to historical figures and I am not an expert on Ben Franklin,but based on my very minimal reasearch and a show on Discovery channel called "How Beer Saved the World",plus just a gut feeling that it sounds like something Ben might have said...I'm going with it..

You know,it's quotes like that about God that really make me question my atheism.I mean,it had to be some sort of cosmic genius who invented beer,right?

The show "How Beer Saved the World" premiered last weekend on Discovery channel.If your a history buff,you'll probably like the show.If you like beer,then you'll love the show.

You'll learn facts like,the Boston Tea Party would have never happened if those involved hadn't been buzzed up on brew before they got the courage to throw the tea in Boston harbor.

Really,you will learn that most every important event in history had some connection to beer.

An added bonus is that the show sort of allows you to embrace your inner caveman feelings that only arise with a beer buzz.

No,that is not permission or an excuse to grab my ass the next time I bump into you in a bar,keep your inner caveman just that,inside.
