The Circle of Beer


Okay, not so much a "circle" as a "food chain". Norwegians and Swedes think their beer is too expensive and cross the water to buy it in Denmark (or Finland, but we don't talk about that). Danes just think beer is too expensive in Scandinavia as a whole and cross the border to buy it in Germany. And Germans buy their beer in...nah, I could go on forever. :XD:

Yup, they're singing drinking songs. The first is a Swedish drinking song that is sung all over Scandinavia. The second is of course German.

International Beer song.

Or a beer prayer.

The Beer Prayer

Our beer,
Which art in barrels,
Hallowed be thy drink.
Thy will be drunk, (I will be drunk),
At home as it is in the tavern.

Give us this day our foamy head,
And forgive us our spillage,
As we forgive those who spill against
us.

And lead us not to incarceration,
But deliver us from hangovers.
For thine is the beer, the bitter, and
the lager.

Barmen

Beer is the foundation of our civilization. Scientists theorize that people in Anatolia stopped being nomads and settled down to become farmers because they discovered that if you left your barley porridge sit overnight something wonderful happened. You could cook it to make barley cakes or you could add more water and it would turn the water to a magical fluid that removed cares.

@MrEvers
Okay, that comment means all-out-total-beer-war.
Just kidding. Had to reinforce some German stereotypes, right? ;-)
Normal Belgian beer is great and all, but some of the stuff you are allowed to put into beer is downright nasty.
Come on, strawberry beer? I laughed so hard when I saw that.

"Yup, they're singing drinking songs. The first is a Swedish drinking song that is sung all over Scandinavia."
A porly sung, drunken version of it with the last part of each line altered from the Swdish "sjung hopp faderallan lallan lej" (which actually is even more gibberishly than the chearing "hurrah"'s they've replaced it with in the comic)

Actually, the song goes "Helan går, sjung hopp farellallan lallan lej" if you will have the correct swedish one. Maybe it's a little different in Denmark, but that's how it is sung in Sweden.

When i was studying Japanese in Tokyo, with EF (education first), i would reference this comic, with my Norwegian, Swedish and German friends. And i would ask one of my german friends, where they would go to buy cheap beer, and he said they go to Poland ^^
