Joe Bob Briggs

Drive-In Movie Critic of Grapevine, TX

Two and a half stars.
Joe Bob says check it out.

Dear Joe Bob:
Knowing your appreciation for the offbeat, I am sending you this recent news item from the European edition of the U.S. Armed Forces newspaper, Stars and Stripes.

It sounds like something from the National Enquirer but I'm not making this up--it's authentic. (Article enclosed: "Dutch City Official Dies After Beer Keg Explodes.")

Powerful beer, this Dutch stuff, eh? It should make a great movie--The Keg That Blew Away Heerlen.

With warm regards,
Lt. Col. Gary L. Dikkers, U.S. Air Force (Ret.), Otterbach, Germany

Dear Gary:
I've been at parties in Texas where the keg explodes, but that's because Corona is 90 percent kerosene in the first place. I thought that, at least in Holland, they knew how to get drunk in a responsible manner. No wonder they grin so much.
