Is that Houston price for the full sized bottle? They also sell a case of pony bottles. If it is that is I think a very good price. I looked it up - Like I thought Missouri has the 2nd lowest alcohol tax in the nation - well below Texas who is 28th and less sales tax. It should be cheaper here but maybe the distribution cost is lower in Texas?

We asked everyone participating in LaughLab to tell us which country they were from. We analysed the data from the ten countries that rated the highest number of jokes. The following ‘league table’ lists the countries in the order of how funny they found the jokes:



Texan: “Where are you from?”
Harvard grad: “I come from a place where we do not end our sentences with prepositions.”
Texan: “Okay – where are you from, jackass?”

Dear Peanut,
When quoting a Texan, please do it with great respect!
I would have said,
"OK; Where are you from asshole?"

Dear sir,
you are correct, the add was for Dos Equis, Corona, or Heineken, butt was only 18 bottle cases, 12 ounce, $22.99 ( weekly Kroger add), 12 pack, bottles $14.99.

That is why us Canadians like to cross the border to stock up on booze!! I don't have any jokes for you frenchie, but watch the leadership debate tonight, that ought to be a big enough joke for you!! Love to hear all those political promises that they all make just to break them as soon as they are elected!

No joke....the honest truth...
Canadians are only allowed to stay in the USA for 6 months per year.
They have to come home to Canada to dry out after consuming all
the cheap booze in the USA :D

(We live in Naples Florida during the winter and hubby gets so excited
with the $14 for 24 beer specials.....the price is Canada $42 :shock: )

My buddies and I are going white water rafting next week. The water is very high
and somewhat dangerous. That's just the way we like things !!
I am going to strap myself in and hope for the best !!
We have a specially designed raft that holds six. Only four of us are daring
enough to try a stunt like this !! Yes, we are taking pictures !

Frenchie, I know it's not the same butt my old man and I have 2 ATVs. We take them into the mountains and have fun.
