Speaking of beer and meat (mentioned in the post below), here’s a story about someone else who apparently likes beer and meat. To sum up: A guy got in trouble with the law in California when he tried to trade his 14-year-old daughter’s hand in marriage for beer, meat and $16,000. I think there’s at least one major difference between this guy and The Thirsty Beagle: Although I do like beer and meat tremendously, I don’t believe I would trade a child for beer and meat. Even if the pot was sweetened with $16,000. And here’s a good question: Where did the 18-year-old groom-to-be get $16,000? I know when I was 18, I wasn’t getting anywhere close to sniffing $16,000 in cash. And if I had beer and meat, I was keeping it!
