Even Hobos Like National Parks

Ahh…I have returned from my busy travels in the American Southwest. There is much red rock, canyons and open spaces as you travel from Vegas to Utah to Arizona. It’s certainly a different world from the busy, tree-lined, coastal feel of the East Coast.

But people change when they wander away from home. I found Paulette Bonafonte taking up a hobo way of life at Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. However, Paulette had to drink many, many beers out of a paper bag to pass out, as Utah beer can have no more than 4% alcohol. We determined that not only is 4% alcohol beer stupid, but it also tastes bad too. We deserve better from Orrin Hatch.

If Paulette is a hobo, where is his mandatory hobo stick w/ a bag at the end?

4% alcohol? Sounds more like beer-flavored water to me. A few years back Japan's Asahi breweries came up with the fabulously-named product Beer Water...and even that had 4.5% alcohol content! Shame on you, Utah!

Well, Paulette had a bag, but you're right...it needs a stick. I think I'll add one right now....

But, give the Japanese credit...at least they say its WATER!

You're complaining about the beer in Utah? You're lucky you can buy a Coke or Pepsi out there, much less a barley pop...

Paulette doesnt need an excuse to be a hobo. Paulette is a hobo sitting on the couch.

My goddess, what a waste. And I don't even drink beer, so if I think beer needs improvement, that is saying something.
