    Woman Gets Beer From Her Kitchen Faucet

    Woman Gets Beer From Her Kitchen Faucet
    1 hour, 14 minutes ago


    It almost seemed like a miracle to Haldis Gundersen when she turned on her kitchen faucet this weekend and found the water had turned into beer.

    Two flights down, employees and customers at the Big Tower Bar were horrified when water poured out of the beer taps.

    By an improbable feat of clumsy plumbing, someone at the bar in Kristiandsund, western Norway, had accidentally hooked the beer hoses to the water pipes for Gundersen's apartment.

    "We had settled down for a cozy Saturday evening, had a nice dinner, and I was just going to clean up a little," Gundersen, 50, told The Associated Press by telephone Monday. "I turned on the kitchen faucet and beer came out."

    However, Gundersen said the beer was flat and not tempting, even in a country where a half-liter (pint) can cost about 25 kroner ($3.75) in grocery stores.

    Per Egil Myrvang, of the local beer distributor, said he helped bartenders reconnect the pipes by telephone.

    "The water and beer pipes do touch each other, but you have to be really creative to connect them together," he told local newspapers.

    Gundersen joked about having the pub send up free beer for her next party.

    "But maybe it would be easier if they just invited me down for a beer," she said.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    Haha, that reminds me of the scene in Don't Be a Menace II Society While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, when that chick uses 40's for everything. Opens the fridge, lined with 40s, cooking? Pour a little 40 in there. She even had the 40 water cooler.

    I want to be this chick's houseguest!

    But.. the beer was flat coming out of the tap. Flat beer = marinade. Not much else.
