    (A friend who drives for Bud forwarded this to me)

    Thought you might like to know what happened in a little town north of Bakersfield, California. After you finish ! reading this, please forward this story on to others so that our nation, and people around the world, will know about those who laughed when they found out about the tragic events in New York, Pennsylvania, and the Pentagon.

    On September 11th, a Budweiser employee was making a delivery to a
    convenience store in a California town named McFarland. He knew of
    the tragedy! that had occurred in New York when he entered the business
    to find the two Arabs, who owned the business, whooping and hollering
    to show their approval and support of this treacherous attack.

    The Budweiser employee went to his truck, called his boss and told him
    of the very upsetting event! He didn't feel he could be in that store
    with those horrible people. His boss asked him, "Do you think you
    could go in there long enough to pull every Budweiser product and item our beverage company sells there? We'll never deliver to them again."

    The employee walked in, proceeded to pull every single product his
    beverage company provided and left with an incredible grin on his
    face. He told them never to bother to call for a delivery again. Budweiser happens to be the beer of choice for that communit! y. Just letting you know how Kern County handled this situation!!

    And now the rest of the story: It seems that the Bud driver and the
    Pepsi man are neighbors! . Bud called Pepsi and told him. Pepsi
    called his boss who told him to pull all Pepsi products as well!! That
    would include Frito Lay, etc. Furthermore, word spread and all vendors
    followed suit! At last report, the store was closed indefinitely. Good old American Passive-Aggressive Whoopin!

    Pass this along. America needs to know that we're all working together.

    Hate to do this, but that's an urban legend. I read it somewhere, and Budweiser has gone on record to deny it. I think you can find it on the urban legends web site, I don't have a link.

    Would have been cool though.

    Alright! More bigoted bullshit! Are we going to just keep slurring Arabs who happen to be business-owning American citizens, or should we expand it to Koreans, Indians, Jews, Germans, Blacks, and women?

    Maybe we should have a weekly rotation?

    I thought it was a true story...Considering the source.

    Sure, if any people who happen to be of those races/nationalities/cultures/gender are cheering at possibly the single most heinous terrorist act in history, I'll support their ruination.

    Get a clue, ARAB wasn't the key part of this urban LEGEND, supporting the attack was.

    Well, I posted this awhile back, though I didn't get it from a buddywiser guy, and it is bogus

    Dude, it's pretty obvious what the intent of something like this is. It isn't to vilify people who support terrorism; it's to vilify Arabs. How many of these fabrications have we all seen since 9/11? They all have the same intent. If you can't see that, a clue isn't gonna help ya. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    It's kind of funny, I just got that story emailed to me by a relative about 5 minutes ago. I wonder if there is a connection somewhere.
