"Once on safari in Africa, we lost our corkscrew and had to survive for many days on food and water."



George Will explains to us this morning that W. C. Fields's alleged African experience was even more harrowing than he knew. Beer, we learn here, is the backbone, the fons et origo, of civilization, the ultimate health food. Closely followed by wine.

Cheers.
