Depending on your taste in beer this could go here or in the coronavirus thread

Busch is giving 3 months' worth of beer to people who adopt or foster a dog during coronavirus crisis

for me it reads like no good deed goes unpunished

The folks who drink Busch are more likely to be power drinkers. People who like quantity over quality. No way in hell $100 lasts three months!

is not same thing at all, but we stopped to help a cyclist with his flat tire... offered to give him a ride. reason we bring up is 'cause we didn't realize at firstest that the guy we were offering help to were greg lemond. we knew greg lemond lived in our community (this were some number o' years past) but we didn't immediate recognize him as he were kneeling on side of the road next to his bike.  once we realized were greg lemond, we pretended as if we didn't recognize, 'cause why make it awkward?

nothing more to story. mr lemond said he were all good and we went our separate ways. 

...

we almost ran over stephen hawking with our bike on a university campus. perhaps contemplating the vastness o' the universe, the dr. didn't bother to make sure no traffic were oncoming before crossing the bike path. we shouted a profanity contemporaneous with recognizing the individual attempting suicide by cyclist.

perhaps we should bike more frequent as it is a curious catalyst for our celebrity encounters.

HA! Good Fun!

ps we do bike 'bout five times a week, but is typical pre-dawn/dawn. am thinking most celebrities is gonna still be in bed at such times.

This made me think: did Stephen Hawking ever curse with his synthesizer?
