Last week, the Canada Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) changed their guidelines for alcohol consumption per week.
Previously, the agency recommended no more than 10 beers per week for women and 15 for men, but changed their stance drastically, now saying that people should be having no more than 2 per week.
This is very strict, even just compared to other nation’s guidelines, with the US recommending 7, Great Britain 10, and Australia 11.
These changes were made in response to the World Health Organization’s warning that no amount of alcohol is safe.
So how are Canadian residents responding to this?
A reporter from CHCH, an independent TV station in Ontario asked a local resident for his thoughts on the matter and he replied as only a true Canadian man could…
“Two drinks a week? Well, that’s just not feasible. Not in this country…
Two drinks in a week, what’s that going to do for you? That’s not even going to get you through a day.”
But he didn’t stop there.
You can see the frustration build inside of him as he launched into a passionate rant against these government guidelines:
“A reasonable amount… I mean if you’re at home you should be able to have, like, 4 beer. That’s just 2 more. I mean I’ll have 6, but 4 is a fair number.
But there shouldn’t even be guidelines anyway, why you gonna tell me how much I should drink at home.”
And when the reporter asks him if he’s worries about any health effects from increased consumption, his blood reached a boil.
The main point here is why are they telling me what I can drink at home. What can I have two liters of pop? Can I have 2 liters of pop? Well, what’s more healthy, 4 beers or 2 liters of Coca-Cola. Do the math.
It’s heartbreaking and I can’t even believe it.”
I mean, it’s pretty hard to argue with that logic… what’s the government recommendation on Coca-Cola? I’d venture to guess there isn’t one…
Tell it like it is, you legend
Then as the he walks away from the interview, he hits the camera with an all-time classic.
“ROCK N’ ROLL”
Well, that settles that… the Canadian people are having absolutely nothing to do with these so called guidelines.
Speaking of, time for a nice mid-day brewski.
The Boys Pull Off A Classic Ice Fishing Prank
It doesn’t get any better than this.
Just the boys out for a day on the hard water, having a good time.
When you put a group of fellas together with a few cold beverages and some fishing rods, something hilarious usually ends up happening.
Ice fishing tends to be a bit slower most of the time, and in cold conditions, the camaraderie is usually more than half the fun. If the action is slow and the fish aren’t biting as much in the cold waters, more beers are bound to go down.
And when you’re sitting in the ice fishing shacks, and the beers are going down, the boys are bound to get some wacky ideas.
This one is a classic.
These fellas hooked onto a neighboring pike line and pulled it up to their hole. The boys attached a beer can on there and made him think he hooked into the big one.
After pulling his line for a bit they let it go and run over to his shack to watch him pull in the big fish.
The man is excited as he reels in his monster of the day:
“I’ve been fighting him for 6 minutes!
It’s a big mother f*****”
As he gets it in the excitement grows more. The man then pops out the icy beer can attached to his line as the boys break out in laughter.
“Ohhh you f***ing pricks.”
But at the end of the day, he’s a good sport about it and pops the top:
