Macho Man Monday

not actually him, might as well be though

An American blogger has pledged to live only off beer during Lent.

Following the ancient tradition of Bavarian monks who brewed stronger beer during the Lenten fast in order to subsist on an almost entirely liquid diet, J Wilson will spend the 46 days of the Lenten period drinking only beer. The young man, who writes about beer on the internet and claims never to have done a Lenten fast in his life, will drink bockbier, which was originally brewed by the Paulaner monks in Munich.

The beer is a strong, dark, malty lager and is known as liquid bread. Traditionally, it was brewed by the monks for the periods of fasting in Lent and Advent. Mr Wilson has brewed his own bock-bier for the project. . .

And here you are thinking you’re so badass because you gave up video games, or chocolate, or MTV for Lent. WRONG. This J Wilson guy just took the game to a whole different level. He flipped the script. He is not only doing something badass but he somehow added religious undertones to make it socially acceptable. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, BEER. J Wilson just cheated the entire system and I honestly could not be more jealous. And you know what, I don’t care if he’s drinking some special monk juice that probably tastes like crusty asshole, I’ve drank my fair share of Mountain Creek and I can say without a shadow of a doubt that there is no beer in the world that can be as bad as that.

So J Wilson, you are about as macho as they come. I’m not going to go and say you’re Seagal or Stallone, but if either of those guys needed someone to get their dry cleaning you would maybe be in the running to be that guy, which is basically the highest compliment I could give someone.
