In my day, we called it Haffenreffer but apparently today’s pooch is too good for the Green Death. So Terrie Berenden, a pet shop owner in the southern Dutch town of Zelhem, created a beer for her Weimaraners made from beef extract and malt. We here at Collateral Damage praise Ms. Berenden for adding yet another weapon to fight the growing scourge of animal anorexia. Kwispelbier (kwispel is Dutchlandish for wagging a tail), now stands proudly beside hand-made dog treats and lazy owners in our effort to promote more obese fauna. (Also it turns out that a “kold Kwispy” is easier to serve than global warming.)
Remember, there is one key question we all need to ask ourselves when approaching a member of the animal kingdom: Does it make me look thin?
