Not only that, but it helps with scurvy.
A close friend and longtime pub customer -- once, during hard times, I fed him Paulaner Salvator with an eyedropper to wean him from Wiedemann -- stopped by today and related this screamer.
Seems that on Saturday night he was at Stevie Ray’s, a downtown Louisville blues club of some renown, and overheard the following at a nearby table:
Customer: I’ll have a Miller Lite with a slice of lime.
Waitress: A what?
Customer: Miller Lite, and a slice of lime.
Waitress: Oh – you see, we call that an Okolona Corona.
(helpless laughter at my friend’s table)
Customer (red-faced): I don’t get it.
Waitress: It’s when you’re too cheap to drink a real Corona.
If you don’t reside in the Louisville metro area, you might not understand how funny this is.
Okay, okay. Back to your stations.
