    • khendar

      Actually the majority of these are from Australia, probably Queensland.

      • topher

        thats right, most of these would be from our december floods. xxxx gold beer in a few pics. cheap as piss and tastes like piss

        • Don Cheese

          might be the reason to have it during floods. When the bottle empties, they can just put it under the dirty water and bam! instant refill.

        • marcochan

          Was going to ask if XXXX was twice as good a XX. Now I don't need to try it 🙂

        • Bear Grylls

    I grew up and lived in a town that got hit by an EF5 tornado, and being able to drink a few beers and laugh with some good friends made it so much easier to deal with all the cleaning up so much easier.

  • Kyle

    And not a single fuck was given that day

    • Yeppers

      doesn't Anyone else think that this phrase is thoroughly worn out?

      • Chiefs420

  • misainzig

  • nemesis

    Reminds me of the 4X commercials in the 90s – "Australians wouldn't give a XXXX for anything else"

    • RichovonBlack

      We don't mate,,,,,thats why we spell it XXXX

  • xXbeermonkeyXx

    #4 leave the kids, save the kegs!!!
    #20 just chillin', floating down the street, having a beer. life can be sweet if you know how to live it

    • Scott

      The one on the left is from a Australian beer commercial. Anything that goes in the river that the beer is made from comes out better.

      One add you see the guy push his girlfriend in and she comes out a stunner, she then pushes him in.

    It's easy to make fun but beer's actually a pretty safe bet in a disaster situation. It's clean, it's portable, it's got carbohydrates and protein for energy. And it's got alcohol, which when your house is underwater, can be a nice stress reliever.

  • Jim

    #2 why do Queenslanders call their beer XXXX?… Because they can't spell Beer! Ha! I guess you have to be Australian to get it.

    • topher

      damn blues supporter

    • Stan


  • Bobby Falcon

    Any other Aussies notice that #19 is Kirks Soft Drink, not beer. Oh you Americans

    • Leppy

      hahaha I was hoping noone else noticed this so I could post about it… Creaming Soda and Pasito….

    • tomatso

      pasito! it's for the kids….. he's towing the keg

    • WTF


    • Bax

      He is at least wearing a t-shirt with a beer logo on it. I had it in Thailand, not sure if its from there tho. I believe so.

    #3 … Rules for Bridesmaids …

    1. Must be one fat one to make the bride and the other bridesmaids look thinner.

    2. Bridesmaids must wear their hair up even though they are far more attractive with it down. This is so the one bridesmaid with short hair won't look too butch.

      And other than the girl 2nd from the left, DO NOT find any of them either! Especially the far right. FTW! She may be #25 sister-mom.

  • qlder

    number 19 isn't beer. it's kirks creaming soda and lemonade and pasito. possibly just that he's got a beer singlet on… but still not the same thing

    • solo

      Was just going to post that!!

  • Kyle

    these people are all extremely intelligent, beer is always safe to drink. The water in these cases probably isn't. If you are white, is probably the only reason you are alive.

    • Slauter

      Right, on both counts.

  • Catfish_Steve

    When we had our flood in Cedar Rapids, everyone was drinking watching the water rise

  • zym

    I've seen #6 forever it seems like and one thing always kill me. He's a got a tub full of beer and figures "fuck it, let me throw one extra in my back pocket."

    • http://echogeo.wordpress.com/ echogeo

      He can have all the Heinekens he wants. That shit is nasty.
