It's been done already under a commission to Piaggio for the French Foreign Legion. I kid you not! From the Piaggio museum in Pontedera Tuscany . . .

Re: Beer cannon

Oh NO Say it aint so.

I keep looking for the "small print" saying "no beer was harmed in the creation of this video" I can't find it.

Please join me in protesting not just this beer cannon, but, every cannon that exploit any beverage.

I hope this ends up as a plank in the Dem's platform. I can stand behind that !!

No beer was harmed, just consumed. Cans were re-filed with . . . sand creating a WMD!!

How's that work exactly? Your enemy drops his weapon because he's laughing so hard then POW! Then again, they are French.

No beer was harmed. At least not anything that's worth drinking, anyway.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

No truer words have been spoken (or typed). I didn't see a Guinness can anywhere. Brilliant!!!

Talking Re: Beer cannon




I like to believe that this radio was tuned into a C&W station at the time of impact.

Re: Beer cannon

Actually a CD flew out of the boom box upon impact.
I believe it was one of your recordings.

Viva C&W music.
