WHY, OH WHY!!! What have we done to anger you Lord? ;)

I hope this doesn't create a Beam shortage. Well, if it does I'll just have to get into what's left of my Y2K stash. Oh wait, I finished that off to celebrate the fact that there was no Y2K calamity...dammit.

When I see stories like this, I thank the good lord I'm a gin drinker.

Can gin even burn?

Instead of a wall of flame, I imagine a little "poof" of flame and then a very elegant plume of smoke-and that's it :)

I wonder if the local rummies started drinking out of the stream up river from the fire fighters dam?

In my younger days I used to light shots of tequila, but I never let it burn long enough to seriously deplete the alcohol content.

The good news:

The company said the warehouse held about 19,000 barrels of bourbon, or less than two percent of its bourbon inventory.

Now this has to be one of the saddest days of humanity ;)
All that fine booze wasted in flames... well at least I haven't heard of any drunk guys trying to kick the flame's a$$ because of stealling their precious bourbon...
