Should I be offended?

So a coworker's lovely bride is walking down the aisle of her favorite grocery store and comes across the following... immediately, she thinks of me, buys it and asks her husband to deliver it.

Rick, you are truly blessed. Your friends are tremendously insightful and thoughtful and considerate, and really, really know you...

Upset Old Guy:

Shit, I wonder if that's available locally? Excuse me, gotta' go do a goole search. I'll drink that until the damn legislature gets around to putting Shiner Bock on the list of beers that can be legally sold in CT.

Rick, if it were me, I'd display that bottle proudly and prominently. Maybe ask her to make out a gift tag I could add to it.

UOG, that bottle is indeed proudly displayed and prominently in my office...

Maggie Mama:

As long as it wasn't smashed on your noggin, I figure you're ahead of the game.

However, it might be a good start to the New Year if you take the "hint", give a long look in the mirror, and answer that question yourself!

Remember: Every joke has a hint of truth in it.

Hey, it's not as if you got a case of "Wussified Pansy Boy" Ale.

But, I'm pretty sure there's only a market for that stuff in the Northeast.

A case of this would be perfect for Barry's next Summit.

Say it loud. Say it proud.

I've always embraced my inner 'arrogant bastard.'

But you should return the favor to your coworker's lovely bride: Send her a few servings of 'ignorant b*tch kool aid.'

No offense.

I first saw that at the Alaska beer and barley wine festival. Good stuff. Bought a wool cap with the name on it. I will think of you now when I wear it.

I'd take it as a compliment. If you can't piss people off (who deserve it) once in a while, what's the purpose of living?

Constitution First:

I bought just so I could be seen shinning the offending label in my paws.

It is quite good brew, to boot.

No, it's a good beer. Just go with it. :)

By the beer? Absolutely not. It's a fine brew.

By the commentary on your personality? That's really up to you.

Actually the perfect response is to get her a case of Flying Dog's Raging Bitch Belgian IPA. It was banned from sale in Michigan, 'cause the 'bitch' apparently had too human looking tits and was considered. In reality, I believe the governor, Jennifer Granholm, just didn't want a beer named after her in the state. It is a good beer too, my daughter brought me in a couple of six packs from Virginia.

Another option would be Old Leghumper Stout, which I haven't had the opportunity to try yet.

Flattering, Rick, but there's a band by the name of "Jay Tea And The Arrogant Sons Of Bitches" that I have nothing to do with, and I'd hate to cause any confusion.

Hmm... I should at least check out their music...

Michael Hamm:

Hell yes, you should be offended. As part of your recovery from the insult you should insist they bring you a case a week of the "Bastard" beer to help your psycholigical wound.

Woman: "Honey?"

Husband: "Yes dear?"

Woman: "I saw this delicious alcoholic brew and thought of a guy I know. Be a dream and walk it over to him for me?"

Husband: (raises an eyebrow)"Sure. Should I take anything else to him? An entree? A card? Your phone number?"

I mean, I fight the ladies off now as it is...

Imagine if I had more hair, less nose, my teeth were straighter and I didn't have such a paunch...

How about CSB from Laughing Dog Brewery? The label features a woman in a very short skirt and a laughing yellow lab with an wicked gleam in his eyes.

My personal favorite unique local brew is Old Crustacean from Rogue.

Piraate Ale is my favorite with Bosnian food.

But Dead Guy and Arrogant Bastard will do.

It's a good ale, "oaked" which gives it a strong flavor and some tannin.

It also has the virtue of being a brew my roommate won't touch no matter how low his supply of light swill gets.
