    Cool Eastkyff, Did Any Of Your Guys Have Something To Do With This???

    I am not sure of exactly where you are from, but this was in today's online news reports.....

    Pass the salt: Tequila overflows, runs into Louisville, Ky., sewer system

    Canadian Press Monday, February 10, 2003

    LOUISVILLE, KY. (AP) - More than 5,000 litres of tequila spilled into the sewer system Monday after a worker tried to unload it from a truck into an already full storage tank at a distillery, officials said.

    The tequila overflowed at a rate of about 380 litres per minute, resulting in 5,000 to 7,000 litres entering the city sewer system, said Phil Lynch, a spokesman for the Brown-Forman Distillery.

    Fire and sewer officials were called because of the flammability of the 80-proof liquor, he said. Water was used to dilute the spilled alcohol.

    "It was a simple case of human error," Lynch said.

    anyway, if you are faced with a alcoholic beverage spill, use ERG guide number 127. Yes, I looked it up
    Correction, if faced with an alcoholic beverage spill, use pretzels and straws, beer nuts are an acceptable substitute for pretzels.

    GROSS!!!

    *Sher unobtrusively stands just outside the bathroom door, and starts the video cam* She zooms in on PFire crouched on her hands and knees, lapping up the toilet bowl "water" like a dog.

    Hearing an odd slurping noise, she turns the cam to see 26 and 27 laid out in the tub, one at each end, with one of those Breakfast in bed trays across the tub between them with a whole whack of Guinness and some cut up lemons. 26 is wearing his turnout pants and some godawful Hula shirt and 27 is wearing a very ill-fitting uniform that looks like a boy scout uniform from when he was like 14 years old or something. The pants come up to his knees. *Sher thinks to herself THANK GOD HE'S WEARING A BATHING SUIT UNDER THOSE PANTS SINCE 27 MUST HAVE BEEN A SCRAWNY LITTLE KID BACK THEN, HE CAN'T EVEN DO THE ZIPPER UP* Determining that the slurping noises were coming from those goofy hats they are both wearing, the ones with 3 foot long straws that are usually attached to two beer cans on either side of the head. But the beer cans are missing, prompting Sher to pan the camera back in the direction of PFire and the toilet. "Oh look, Tempie's perched on the top of the toilet, holding the ends of 26 and 27's straws in one hand and a salt shaker in the other."

    Just then there was a furious pounding sound coming from the hallway. Before Sher could turn to see what was happening this big *** dog came along and knocked her feet right out from under her. Sher drops the cam, spinning her arms wildly trying to get her balance, Sher stumbles over PFire still crouched on the floor. With arms still flailing away, Sher tries to grab onto Tempie, pulling her so she falls off the tank and lands with one foot in the toilet and the other stuck between the vanity and the toilet. The monster dog is barking and wiggling from all the excitement and knocks PFire into Sher, making her fall into the tub, knocking the Guinness off the breakfast tray on the way down, but 26 makes a spectacular save, catching both beer before a drop is spilled. Meanwhile 27 is howling with laughter so Sher stands up and grabs the shower head and sprays him right in the face with it while 26 holds him down. Tempie's laughing hysterically, because the dog is licking her foot trying to get at the "toilet water". All of a sudden there was a huge *TWANNNNNGGGGGGGGGG* and everyone, the dog too, freezes and turn to the bathroom door not knowing what to expect when looming out of the darkness of the hallway appeared ........

    Wow! This thread got everybody's attention!

    Sorry not to reply sooner...Mini-Me is sick and yesterday was my Mr. Mom day. Anyhow, LFD is very squirrelly about this stuff after their 1983 sewer explosion!

    I just want to know what on earth a perfectly good KY distillery is doing producing tequila. We should leave that for Mexico or they'll wind up making whiskey down there!
