Howdy BS Boys, My buddies and I were out fishing for catfish late last week on the local lake. The weather is getting kind of cold. I had a little trouble passing out the beer with my numb fingers. Because of what turned out to be frost bite, I lost beer…I dropped a whole six-pack over the edge of the boat. Good thing is I know where I dropped it in the river. I don’t know about you, but I really hate to lose a beer, let alone a full six-pack. BS Boys, what do you think, is it still there? Bob V.
Dear Bob V.
O.K. first of all you didn’t say whether it was bottles or cans. Secondly, catfish don’t have thumbs so they can’t open the twist off caps if they’re bottles. If they were cans, ditto. Yeah, we think the beer will still be there, but the bigger question is why have you taken so long to retrieve it? Get in there and swim! Now comes the advice. Why would you hold a six-pack of beer over the rail of the boat in the first place? Or even put the beer close to the side of the boat? Don’t you have children? I mean come on……..
