A Buddy, will always stand with you. A real good buddy will fall down with you every once in a while too.


Is someone who never judges you,
never condemns you,
never scolds you,
always forgives you
and always offers you a beer afterwards.
will do his best to help you solve a problem
and even if the two of you aren't able to,
he’ll offer you a beer
and make you feel better
because you tried.
will kick your ass in a game of pool,
then buy you a beer
and if you should happen to kick his ass,
he’ll still buy you the beer.
will go fishing with you,
even if he doesn’t enjoy fishing,
just because he knows that you do.
And, he’ll bring the beer.
will always be willing
to watch the game with you,
any game, no matter what sport
they all go with a beer.
will share a beer with you,
no matter what the occasion
and if there isn't an occasion,
he'll help you come up with one.
might not turn you in to an alcoholic,
but it won't be from lack of effort.
Why do you think they call it BUDweiser?

Thank you for the smile. I think every man should have a real friend like this one.

Most perceptive. It's because it makes you and your bud WEISER. Especially after leaving evening traffic school. Then again that's pretty easy to do in my little circle of buddies. Patrick

Like the "bud wiser" line. Guess I'll never be a buddy, because, although I'm from Wisconsin, I never accepted a beer--or drank one.

Jim Beam and white wine are my poisons--and I still have friends, I think?
