So if you were silly enough to drink it, just remember that only a few 'Mexicans' ever drank it over here!

We only pretended to drink it. We figured if we did so, someone might be silly enough to buy it and take it away to their place.

It worked.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Meanwhile, the real Mexicans send their Corona to Australia where it sells at a hugely premium price and in great quantities. It is the next worst beer (to Tecate) made in Mexico. Most Mexicans drink Pacifico or Negro Modelo, or, if sophisticate, Bohemia.

They would send the Tecate, but as it is classified as toxic, the quarantine lads prohibit its importation as a food stuff.

Happily there are now numerous boutique breweries in Oz, many of which do a presentable IPA. Kinda dear, though!

Re: The New Joke Thread

LOL, yeah, last time he visited my US-resident, Mexican-Australian-American cousin couldn't believe how much people were prepared to pay for what he considered **** beer.

Needless to say, we showed him some craft beers that he declared were not half bad....

Re: The New Joke Thread

Well, I have to admit, some of the best craft beers I have tasted were on the shoreline in San Francisco.

Re: The New Joke Thread

The phone rings and the lady of the house answers, "Hello. Mrs. Sanders, please."

"Speaking."

"Mrs. Sanders, this is Doctor Jones at Saint Agnes Laboratory. When your husband's doctor sent his biopsy to the lab last week, a biopsy from another Mr. Sanders arrived as well...We are now uncertain which one belongs to your husband.Frankly, either the results are not too good.

"What do you mean?" Mrs. Sanders asks nervously.

"Well, one of the specimens tested positive for Alzheimer's and the other one tested positive for HIV. We can't tell which is which."

"That's dreadful! Can you do the test again?" asked Mrs. Sanders.

"Normally we can, but MEDICARE will only pay for these expensive tests once."

"Well, what am I supposed to do now?"

"The MEDICARE Helpdesk recommend that you drop your husband off somewhere in the middle of town...If he finds his way home, don't sleep with him!

Re: The New Joke Thread

I told the GF if I could train the dog to fetch me beer, I wouldn't need her any more. She didn't believe me.
