Dog Fight

Drinking and flying
Is much harder than it looks.
The shooting’s tough too.

After the Game

Winners and Losers
Share beer, tales, and fellowship
‘Til the next battle

Written by Captain Hops.

References: Flying Dog announced the winner of their Twitter haiku contest yesterday. Redhead Writing was the obvious champion with her subtle but poignant verse:

Drinking Flying Dog
Makes boys touch my breast-es-ses
So I drink it lots.

Congratulations to all the winners and entrants! Cheers!

In comfort, I watch, amused

Atop beer can boats
Brave crews launch into battle
