You're probably right.  I guess Pabst Blue Ribbon just wouldn't cut it?

Let me clarify.  Give the rotgut to the rest of them and save the good stuff for me.  I'll need it, especially if you sit me between Rosarium and Walty.

Oh, come on, Doc.  You know we'd get on just swell.  The internet doesn't do us any favors.
