A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).

Lederhosen Pug—Bavaria Beer

No worries, though—my name is Lederhosen Pug, and I know the way. 

In Bavaria, we know beer (and we like it).
[b] No Maß RF

We drink more of it than any other place in the world—averaging 170 liters a year. Heck, I know a few people who drink that in a month (although I am more careful in my imbibing habits, wishing to keep my lederhosen figure trim).

You see, we drink our beer in Maß—a liter at a time—and that makes it easy to count. No, technically that does not mean en masse, but it would also be true. I'll save the way we make our beer for another day (we are very proud of this ancient tradition).

That leads me to the greatest travesty of all, however. There is a beer out there called "Bavaria Beer." That sounds mighty fine on the face of it, but if you look more closely, you'll see that the stuff is made in the Netherlands. What? We sued, but the EU is the EU, and we have to live with it.

All I can say is that you should drink beer made in Bavaria. Stay away from that Netherlands swill. Bavaria lederhosen.
