Just Beer

Telling old stories
I can barely remember.
Bring another round.

A couple tight friends
Sitting around the fire
Telling their best lies

A Dad’s Job

The wooden playset
Takes seven hours to build
If they didn’t lie.

They have mistakes in the instructions. They have pictures saying that the bolt must absolutely go through the second hole in one page of instructions and then all the rest of the pictures show the bolt going through the first hole and the project only works if the bolt goes through the first hole, but you don’t figure that out until 7 pages later. To be honest there were only 2 or 3 lies, oh yeah, and the missing 1.5 inch bolts, but those mistakes and omissions add up to approximately 22 man-hours of work to create the masterpiece you see in the picture.

Anyone wondering what this haiku has to do with beer has never spent two days in 95 degree heat putting one of these things together.

Cheers!
