It's not like it was just a six pack or something. My God! The man had a 30 can case of beer.

I guess he didn't want the case to hit the kid if he had to stop...

I heard Jeff Foxworthy the other day, talking about riding in his dad's car on the shelf in the back window. I remember when cars did not have seat belts in them. We were pretty rugged back then, not a bunch of pussies like today . . . Ask me how I got this dent in my forehead . . .

And I continue to hear liberals ask, " Really what freedoms have you lost?"
I guess I have lost the freedom to decide if I want to belt in the beer or the child.

I know I shouldn't have laughed and that's just wrong, but I did.

Why? He gets his jollies when making another kid. However, he has to work (unpleasant) for the money to buy another 30 cans. Now if it were a 6 pack, it might be a push. But come on, we are talking of 30 cans here.

I’m saying it was right. But, it may just have been an issue of space.
30 cans of Fosters probably takes up more space than a 5 year old, and wouldn’t fit on the floor like the kid could.

I have custody of nearly a full case of Sam Adams triple Boch. My son would rather i wreck the car than harm that beer. It goes $20 to $26 a bottle on Ebay, or so he tells me.

I had no idea beer had gotten so expensive since I quit drinking a few years ago. No wonder he buckled his in!
