He & his Brothers spooned Whiskey down a mean old Rooster & all got beat, with a rope! He said it was worth it, to see the Roosters' ANTICS! YES, this was my Dearly Beloved Father, that taught me ALL kinds of GREAT Model A stuff!!!
Oh the stories he told me of his drinking days & making & delivering Moonshine much like a Milkman delivered milk. I was amazed that he lived to be 92 Years old & was never arrested or in JAIL!!!

Many years ago, we had some spiked egg nog left over after a party - gave it to the cat. He lapped it up, staggered over to his favorite chair, tried to jump in it but missed, and just laid there on the floor with a stupid cat-grin on his face. Wouldn't do it now as we realize it probably wasn't good for him, but we were young and foolish at the time.

Most Dogs LOVE to lap BEER! At a local shop, during after work beer, the Shop Dog would get plastered & retire to his shop bed!

My mother told me about a house party that they had, back in the depression. They had a small keg of beer w/a spigot that dripped a bit. The neighbour's bulldog was continually licking up the drips and later on he farted and it stank so bad it cleared the house out.

I believe these were awards given to Jim Beam employees for sales or milestones.

Back in the '70's a fellow A'er in Sweden wanted a Beam firetruck. I packaged up a full one real well so you couldn't hear it slosh and labeled it a "ceramic car sculpture" on the customs slip. He received it fine and enjoyed the whisky too.
