double dare


20 14

August 7th - 28th 10pm kick off with live DJs CORONA BUCKET




I dare you, I double dare you… When was the last time you heard that? I was a kid, ready to jump my shonky BMX bike over an even shonkier wooden jump. The peer pressure was like aN anvil on my shoulders and before I could squirm out of it I was haphazardly airborne with a skinned knee in my future. When we are kids we push ourselves to step into the unknown. Sometimes the results hurt and sometimes they don’t. By the time we are adults that desire to dare is repressed and the default EDITOR/ADVERTISING: setting in life is… coast. Stuff that. Wake Scott Kennedy: 021 681 959 up tomorrow and dare yourself to do DESIGN/ADVERTISING: something - anything. Tim Buckley: 027 239 0342 Lock yourself away in a shack and write DISTRIBUTION/ADVERTISING: an album like The Nomad, dare yourself Matt Booth: 022 041 8201 to be on TV like Jaimie Stodler, run like a MULE, spin records for a living, start a MARKETING/PRODUCTION: new business, ask someone to dance Sophie Kennedy: 021 339 173 do it, even if you skin your knee at least ACCOUNTS/PRODUCTION: you’ll have a good story. Kirsten Young: 021 341 249 We dare you to. SNail: PO Box 689, Queenstown

My theory is that all of Scottish cuisine is based on a dare. Mike Myers

Jaimie Stodler has been a fixture in the Queenstown Cupcake scene for as long as Queenstown has had a cupcake scene, actually Jaimie Stodler IS the Queenstown Cupcake scene. Rocking out goodness from her tiny shop Cup & Cake for the past few years she was world famous in Queenstown. That was until earlier this year when all of NZ got to know Jaimie when she, along with cooking partner in crime Bex finished a very credible second on Masterchef, NZ. The dust has settled, The Source thought it was about time for a chat. Source: So how does it all start? Jaimie: I was at a cooking demo with Simon Gault and I just approached him and said ‘hey I’d love you to mentor me or something’ - and he said, ‘you should enter Masterchef’. And I went online that night and entered. Source: Did you have ambitions to be on TV? Jaimie: I had ambitions to be on TV but never on Masterchef, it never occurred to me. I was an armchair critic of the show and sat there and said ‘I could do that’ - but I never thought I would. 4

Source: Isn’t that the appeal of shows like that, the viewer sits at home and says ‘I could do that!’ Jaimie: I think that’s one of the ironies - just because you can make something at home, doesn’t mean you can make it on TV, in a timed environment with three celebrity chefs hanging over the top of you, after you haven’t slept, seen your family in weeks, it’s a totally different story. Source: So was it fun? Jaimie: It was amazing! It was tough - it wasn’t necessarily fun at the time, it was like running a marathon. ‘Was every step fun? No. Was it massively rewarding? Yes’.



Source: So how’s it changed your life? Jaimie: Well I definitely put a bit more effort into cooking at home! In some ways it hasn’t - I’m still here in my shop, I still have a family that I love but in other ways everything has changed. I’m doing cooking demos around the country and things are happening. I’m helping people to become better cooks and I love that. It’s funny when I go to Auckland, people recognise me and ask for autographs but here in Queenstown I’m just Jaimie and that’s great.

Source: Did you have expectations going in what you’d like to get out at the end? Jaimie: I had no idea. But now that I have this profile it’s a matter of what to do with it - I’d love to do more TV work, I enjoy it and I love educating people. Source: Does this feel like the high point or a stepping stone? Jaimie: A stepping stone, definitely! Everything is a stepping stone leading to the next big thing. My high point will be the last thing I do - up until then it’s about improving every day and keeping aiming for the next big goal. 5


A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life. Charles Darwin



This artist first came to prominence as part of the New Zealand hip hop group fastCREW, which gave him a taste for success and excessive touring. After releasing two platinum albums and support slots with internationally acclaimed artists such as Busta Rhymes, D12, De La Soul and Snoop Dogg, the group split. Alias came back as strong as ever as a solo artist and has been building a new reputation for himself over the past few years. As well as performing independently he was also involved in the formation of Regrooved NZ; a collective of kiwi DJs that organise nights across the country. This has helped cement this veteran’s name in the history books of New Zealand hip hop. Whilst delving through his SoundCloud page I discovered remixes such as “Babylon Shall Fall”, “Boogie Down” and “San Francisco Bay”, along with Alias originals such as “Witchcraft”. All of these tunes have their own sound and feel, which adds to DJ Alias’ varied back catalogue. I highly recommend you check this guy out when he’s behind the decks anywhere across Queenstown. In fact, I double dare you to…

You can stop drooling at snowboard videos in bars across town; the mountain is open. Having trouble deciding what tunes will best accompany you on your first trip down the hill? I have a name for you: DJ Alias. A household name across New Zealand, his hip-hop/ drum and bass beats are blended seamlessly with Funk, Reggae, Jazz and Soul, with a back catalogue comprising of remixes and original compositions. From Muse to Jah Warrior to Sola Rosa, Alias has added his style to these musicians’ songs and created an infectious sound.

What it lies in our power to do, it lies in our power not to do. Aristotle

I Double Dare You to do a Mule This is dirtier than it sounds. The Mule is a bi-annual, all-terrain obstacle course testing the toughest with a combination of muddy fields, cold rivers, manmade obstacles and whatever the infamous Queenstown weather fancies throwing in. After a stellar turn out for the Summer event, the winter Mule, on Saturday 5th July, will see all Queenstowners stubborn enough tackle both weather and terrain. The course is set amongst the mountains of Ben Lomond Farm station beyond Moke Lake. Enter as a lone wolf or saddle up with a bunch of mates and enter as a team (caution matching fluffy sheep outfits may be less funny under water). Both the 5km and 10km options and the twenty manmade obstacles, are designed to be a challenge of grit and spirit. Focus on the obstacles, have a little determination and a lot of laughs and you won’t even notice the kms falling away behind you. All the training and ability in the world is wasted if it is not enjoyed. This is as much about challenging yourself mentally as challenging your ability. It’s not about speed or super-human ability, it’s about how and who you work with along the way. What better way to make friends

than to help a stranger haul themselves through an icy river? This is a community driven event unique to Queenstown, the epic people, the epic terrain and the epic weather. Registration is available on the day; check out: Reading this on the 6th July with tears of regret in your eyes? Try these winter warmers for size: PEAK TO PEAK - Saturday 26th July - Ski - Bike - Paddle - Run - Bike your way as a team or individual from The Remarkables to Coronet Peak. SKIN THE PEAK - Remember that hike you didn’t quite nail last ski season? This year, it’s yours. SAM SUMMERS - This tidy, 6km, hilly run will have you sweating like it’s summer by the time you get back to town.

Who dares not speak his free thought is a slave. Euripides

By Jane Guy

PRESS PLAY cake kind of people who I never knew existed and that’s what counts for me. Stay real to who you are (not in a wanky way, just why you did this in the first place). I have been searching for years (and driving friends mad) for what I want to do, and am good at. This might not be it (there could be a world class table tennis player lurking inside me) but it makes me spark, gives me a wee bubble in my chest (maybe something I should get checked out) and allows me to work in my pyjamas in my bedroom office and look after staff (myself). I’m still scrabbling around for rent money; but the process is often the bit you miss because you’re so focused on fame and fortune. Soak up the process, the scary bits. The tax questions. And press play - I double dare you.

“Everybody does have a book in them, but in most cases that’s where it should stay” The late great Christopher Hitchens could be right. If I published my first blog piece will my friends still talk to me? Will I disappear into the vacuum of obscurity like Vanilla Ice (exactly). Starting a business is a gamble: 1) you could invest your life savings (in my case my tape collection), 2) your fears of being rubbish could come true (and have everyone laugh at you), 3) you could end up with 3 likes on your Facebook page (and one of them is your mum’s sister’s brother)- it’s a lonely old world out there with no notifications. But I have learnt some stuff along the way in my short business-owner life and I’ll let you into my secrets. If you have an idea, a yearning, a spark of imagination just press play. Don’t hover, just do it. You have nothing to lose and yes your mother will still love you (and continue to ‘like’ everything on Facebook). Its not about Facebook. Yes, your audience is important and you should adhere to some of the things they advise but it’s the people you meet along the way. I have uncovered some of the most heart warming, kind, creative-made-me14

WTF? fondue slippers Inspired by 1960’s house party cuisine, designer Satsuki Ohata created Fondue Slippers - a thin PVC replica of your foot that combines the satisfaction of not wearing shoes with all the fun of melted cheese. Submerging your entire foot into heated PVC creates an exact replica of your tootsies, which can then be worn. Ohata hopes to eventually sell at-home kits, allowing anyone to make their own pair of custom kicks. 15

This is no time for ease and comfort. It is time to dare and endure.


A Wheelie Good Trip

If you were to ask someone what they think of when they hear the phrase C90, certainly most people over the age of 30 would say “cassette tape”, with early memories huddled around the radio/tape player trying to copy the latest chart entries. For others, another vision pops into the mind’s eye: London cabbies learning The Knowledge and midnight pizza delivery guys plying their trade. A motorbike for the Everyman. Just as Honda first imagined them. And it worked. They sold 60 million of the buggers. One guy who also knows them especially well is Englishman Ed March. Not content using his $400 machine to commute, he set himself “a bit of a challenge”, posting it to Malaysia and riding it the 23000kms back to the UK - not bad for a first outing beyond the confines of Europe. The DVD of his trip will be shown at The Find later this month. We caught up with Ed for a quick chat... Obvious question to start: Why a wee Honda and not a big bike like Ewan and Charlie? Every country [in Asia] travels at about 45mph and they ride small Hondas... any bike that goes above 45mph and isn’t a Honda is fairly pointless! Which was your favourite country to pass through? Iran - the

friendliest place I’ve ever been and scenery is amazing. Any absolute calamities along the way? In Thailand a mechanic changed the engine oil for brake fluid, but she kept going till I reached the next Honda garage. I got a full engine rebuild for $45 and it only took them two and a half hours! Have you had many people follow in your tyre-tracks? Quite a few! A lot of people have blamed me for them now owning a C90! Ha ha! I’ve just travelled 1600kms picking up a C90. Are there any nuggets of wisdom you want to pass on? The trip was an absolute blast and incredibly easy. I’d do it again in a heartbeat! The C90’s very easy to fix, very cheap to run and life’s a lot easier if you don’t look like a rich Westerner! Go on, do it! Challenge... ACCEPTED!

Can’t believe you haven’t SEEN.. where eagles dare Disguised as Nazi officers, commandos Maj. John Smith (Richard Burton), Lt. Morris Schaffer (Clint Eastwood) and six other courageous souls parachute behind enemy lines. Their mission: to rescue an American general held captive in a supposedly impenetrable alpine castle. Aiding and abetting the commandos are Allied undercover agents Mary (Mary Ure) and Heidi (Ingrid Pitt). Also on hand is a British officer (Patrick Wymark), who masterminded the mission. Somewhere, somehow, someone amongst the Allies is going to turn out to be a traitor. There’s also a cool plot twist in store when the commandos manage to reach the American general - which leads to yet another twist. 18

Our ‘How To’ guide to some old favourites and a few new ones...


By: Paul Shipman

Dare to wear the foolish clown face. Frank Sinatra

NUCLEAR DAIQUIRI popular brand by a long way is the Jamaican Wray and Nephew. This rum currently accounts for 90% of all rum drunk in Jamaica, so unless you are a hardcore Jamaican rum drinker, these are best left to use as floats in Tiki style drinks such as Mai Tais or used to flambé while cooking. But you asked for a scary drink and here it is. Please be warned this drink is extremely powerful and not to be taken lightly. We at the Source do not encourage irresponsible drinking! Nuclear Daiquiri 45ml Wray and Nephew overproof 30ml Green Chartreuse (a bitter herbal digestif) 30ml freshly squeezed lime juice 15ml Sugar Syrup Shake and double strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lime wheel and a friend who can take you home safely.

As our theme this month is double dare, I thought it may be appropriate (possibly not too responsible!) to introduce an extremely scary drink - The Nuclear Daiquiri! I first had this drink in a Tiki bar in Notting Hill, London. The bartenders were pouring these while setting the ceiling of the bar alight with a flame breathing fire show. Yup, it was one of those nights. So, daiquiris... Invented around 1900 by American engineer Jennings Cox. The classic Daiquiri is my favourite cocktail by a long way and no, I don’t mean those crap blended ones with strawberries. I mean the simple original daiquiri; a perfect harmony of rum, fresh zingy lime juice and just enough sugar syrup to bring the two together. Now with so few ingredients you can change the flavour just by the type of rum you use. Try using a lighter rum like Bacardi Carta Blanca for a clean crisp drink, a darker rum like Havana 7 year old for a richer deeper style, or somewhere in the middle like Mount Gay (my choice for an everyday rum) for a balanced style. Or... use an overproof rum for a fairly terrifying style! Over-proof simply means that the rums are MUCH higher in alcohol content than regular rum. Where Bacardi Carta Blanca is 37.5% a.b.v. over-proof rums sit around the 75% a.b.v. or 150 proof mark. The most 27


But I dare not think too far into the future on the risk that I’ll miss the present. Colin Farrell

THE POWER OF PEOPLE We can’t rest on our laurels though. Corporate giants don’t sleep. They will always be looking for ways to squeeze another dollar out of every opportunity and their approach has no way of measuring the value of anything except money. If New Zealanders want their children to grow up in a country which still retains some of the values kiwis claim to hold dear (such as clean rivers, edible seafood and an unspoiled wilderness), we all need to take some responsibility for its upkeep. We can’t rely on politicians or bankers to do the right thing when it comes to our natural environment. Instead we need to gather together in larger, more effective groups and communicate with each other in focused, meaningful ways. When the election hype has died down and the promises start to get forgotten, there will be new proposals and bigger struggles ahead. Every Kiwi should ask what they can do to protect some corner of this lucky country and not be afraid to wave a placard or sign a petition. It can actually make a difference.

OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS THE GOVERNMENT HAS TURNED DOWN A TUNNEL UNDER THE ROUTEBURN, A MONORAIL in fiordland AND MORE RECENTLY A SEABED MINING OPERATION IN TARANAKI. On the face of it these decisions suggest that our leaders have begun to think with a tinge of Green and that the future of our natural heritage is safe. Or perhaps you could argue that this is election year and all three proposals were absolute madness in the first place. Probably a bit of both eh? One thing is for sure, these potentially devastating projects didn’t get turned down just because they were inherently flawed. They were rejected in the main because people who could see sense gathered together and put their hands up and challenged them. Organisations like Save Fiorldland and the Glenorchy ‘Stop The Tunnel’ campaign have demonstrated that grass-roots activism is still alive and well in New Zealand, a country with a rich and proud history of standing up and doing the right thing when the time comes. 28

The Word On Travel Thanks to our mates at STA Travel


wok on asia

Take a big dose of culture, mix with lashings of street food, throw in some of the world’s best beaches and turn the temperature up high for an Asia experience you won’t forget!

Halong Bay, slurp some Pho noodle soup and explore the war relics. Asia’s big cities are definitely worth a stopover; take a few days in Singapore, Hong Kong or Kuala Lumpur where East meets West. Explore the markets, take in the view from a rooftop bar or search for the city’s best eats.

Hit Thailand for amazing tropical beaches, golden monuments and some serious partying (Full Moon, anyone?). Get beached in Bali where you can learn to surf, play with the monkeys in Ubud or hit the awesome dive spots. Experience Vietnam by junk boat in

It sounds so clichéd but whatever you’re after for your next adventure, Asia is bound to deliver it. In spades (or should we say buckets?).

TAMING THE DAY AFTER playing pool and drinking - the first two drinks kinda help, after that it’s all down hill. You thought the hangover was bad today? Wait till it’s doubled tomorrow. The Tried and True: Water and a nap really do work, they may not be sexy and killing a day off on the couch rather than up on the mountain feels like stink they are the most reliable. The Plan: So you’ve planned to hit Remarks for some POW and you also smashed enough money shots and teapots to agree to a 7am pickup? Here’s what you do: Drink a pint of water before bed. Wake up in the middle of the night to pee, drink more water. Eat a big breakfast - smash a bacon butty and get some fuel in the tank More water Pain killers for headache When energy is waning go Red Bull and go hard.

Who hasn’t woken up in a bathtub, cuddled up next to a road cone, with a penis drawn on your face… this week? With Winter Festival a fading, pounding, incessant memory and the hangover going as strong as a rabbit in heat - The Source OFFERS SOME TESTED TIPS FOR the best hangover cures. The Fry Up: A wise man once told us that “KFC is the best hangover cure, somewhere deep inside you know the food is killing you, so your body fights the invasion and kills the hangover in the process”. Fair point. There’s no shortage of greasy options in QT - Red Rock does a mean Full English, the Bacon Sandwiches are killer at Bob’s Weigh and a pie from Eat Humble Pie tends to napalm the gurgling death inside your tummy. The High Tech: Red Bull is partially responsible for getting you here, can it help you out? While the hydration is a good thing - that’s essentially what a hangover is (dying of thirst apparently feels like the worst hangover EVER) - the sugar might tip that balance to headache-ville. Berocca are great for helping to change the colour of your pee and Emergen-C helps revitalise your minerals, or something, it also relieves you of whatever cash you have left from the night before. The Hair of the Dog: Bloody Marys all around! It’s like when you start 30



the nomad



it feels like the nomad has been part of New zealand’s electronic music arena since time began. He’s collaborated with the who’s who of the music scene and along the way released six stonking albums. July sees the release of his 7th album, entitled ‘7’ - The Source caught up with the multi-talented artist and got the scoop. Source: So what’s been happening? Nomad: I spent two months, locked away in a secret location on The West Coast making the album. And then spent the next two months setting up a re-mix competition and getting ready for this massive tour I’m going to do. And I’m making these large scale audio/visual art installations that are going to tour galleries and festivals around the country. All the music for the art is based around Maori contemporary instrumentation. And I’m teaching workshops on audio production on mentoring young musicians and shooting a music video in Shanghai and Jamaica! Source: You’ve got a whole ton of projects all coming out at once how does that feel?

Nomad: I love it - I’m a busy person and I love to be challenged. I love to immerse myself in it - 1015 hours a day. Source: Do you think the isolation and the commitment translates into the music? Nomad: Definitely. Because I locked myself away up on the coast and recorded non-stop for two months, the album is all tied into the emotions of that specific time, not the ups and downs over the course of a year. Source: Music and visual art are both very social art forms - how did it work isolating yourself? Nomad: It’s like when people go and write a book - you spend all your time on something and you don’t have any distractions, it becomes a better product. It’s been the best musical process I’ve experienced as producer over the past 18 years or as a DJ over the past 25 years - the last four months have been the most creative and the most spiritual of my life. ‘7’ goes live on July 7th, stay tuned to The Source Facebook page to win a copy of it. 33

Girls are always running through my mind. They don’t dare walk. Andy Gibb

stage fright showboating hard and was branded hard out a poser by Invercargill. All of Invercargill I think… Henry Youngman (Radio DJ): I was about 9 when I commandeered a mic during a family lunch at a vineyard in mid Canterbury. Can’t sing but belted out ‘Stand By Me’. I still don’t know why I did it! It was a weird feeling and I still get nervous today. It’s always a good buzz putting yourself in a vulnerable position on stage like that. Finley Brentwood (Actor: Jesus Christ Superstar): I think the level of nervousness varies on many things. Where you’re performing (home or away), the type of performance, how many people you’re in front of, or even the type of venue you’re in (if you can’t see the audience, it’s easier to forget they’re there). Despite my experience, the nerves catch me 90% of the time. It’s good to be nervous, it means you want to do a good job and are probably more likely to do so. Just don’t let them overtake you.

Get on stage, we dare you. We’ve all heard that before - maybe it was at the school talent show at age 8 or maybe it was at karaoke night last week. Normal people feel like they might shit themselves - but what about the pros? Joe Cowie (The Killer Seas): My first time on stage was awesome, I was 15 and playing harmonica, tambourine and singing backing vocals while my two cousins played guitars and sang. I got a huge buzz out of it and loved the feeling of being a part of something that was making other people feel good. I also got paid in crayfish! Lindsay Woods (LA Social Club): I was 16 and was armed with nothing more than 3 chords, a rudimentary command of the blues scale and a new pair of Docs. Played ‘Bad to the Bone’ at the Invercargill Civic Theatre... except it was a church youth group meet... so we sung... Good to the Lord. Sigh… I made up for a lack of skill with running round the stage kicking the set 34


Holly Arrowsmith: The first time I remember singing in public was my high school music class performance night, I must have been 15. I sang Lynyrd Skynyrd ‘Simple Man’ and completely shocked my dad who had no idea I could sing along with most of my classmates. I was a really shy kid in front of most people but I always wished I could get up and give it a go. There are a lot of people like me; dying to show the world something but lacking the confidence to get past the nerves. But once that initial leap is over it gets easier and easier, now I hardly ever feel overly nervous before a show - I get more anxious over what I will talk about between songs than the singing itself! Even my stage banter has gradually improved - but not without the occasional foot in mouth blunder. That’s all part of it though I suppose! Maybe it’s refreshing for the audience to see that the person on stage is in fact real - and imperfect. Nerves show you care about what you are doing! The Nomad (Musician, DJ): I was 10 and living in Hamilton, I had to give a speech at school and it felt like the end of the world. I was so afraid that instead of going to school that day I went and hid in

the corn fields and then at 3pm I come home to mom saying “how was school son?”. I couldn’t hide the fact that I bunked school. I started to cry and told her what I had done, the next day I went to school and faced my fears, it wasn’t as bad as I made it out to be in my head. I’m glad that I overcame that little hurdle. When I started to do live shows I was so nervous that I didn’t eat much on the day of the show. Nowadays I’m too busy to even think about it until an hour before the gig, I’m still a bit nervous at gigs but nothing like I used to be. The best time is when I have 5000 people in front of me while on stage, the scary times are when there are only 10 people. It’s the best feeling in the world to have a nice intimate crowd and have them all love your music and give you the reaction and feedback you deserve. It’s a roller coaster ride this thing called “entertaining”. Joel Rowlands (The Killer Seas): I started off in church bands, had to play every Sunday morning / evening. Was a good place to start learning, everyone was very supportive, not too many critics. Was fun and had all the lil ladies over me... not so much luck with the ladies these days.



Here’s our take on your month ahead. If you’re looking for spiritual guidance this is not the place...

ARIES - Not with that you’re not TAURUS - When you don’t know the answer look to Wikipedia, Maori god of knowledge GEMINI - You have a choice: cut your own ears off or listen to Coldplay nonstop for the rest of your life. CANCER - iPhones are like people: they stop talking to you when you dunk them in the toilet. LEO - Skiing: Snowboarding for the uncool. VIRGO - The difference between the best curry in town and the worst is 2minutes on high.

LIBRA - The Flintstones exist at the same time as The Jetsons - they are the remnants of a post apocalyptic society being watched from the clouds. SCORPIO - we saw into your future, something is totally going to happen. SAGITTARIUS - If love was easy they’d call it snowboarding CAPRICORN - If you really care about The World Cup, your team won’t win The World Cup. AQUARIUS - That’s what you are wearing out, really? PISCES - There’s really no good way to explain carpet burn on your face.

If it’s on the menu, you gotta give it a try right? Mmm. Maybe... Thousand-Year-Old Egg From China, made by preserving eggs in a mixture of ash, salt, quicklime, rice hulls and clay for several weeks (or months). Casu Marzu (rotten cheese) A traditional sheep milk cheese from Sardinia, Italy. The cheese makers set the cheese outside and allow flies to lay eggs inside it. The larvae break down all of the fats and ferment it. Fruit Bat Soup The entire process for preparing fruit bat soup, as enjoyed in Guam, is as follows: rinse off the bat, boil it, chop some vegetables (sometimes), douse everything in coconut milk, serve. Notice how “shave the bat” is conspicuously absent from that list. Fur is eaten along with eyes, wings and just about everything else that’s not bone. Parkinson’s, Lou Gehrig’s disease and Alzheimers are all possibilities. Cockscombs Cleaning the cockscombs, which have a thick outer skin loaded with feathers, is a labourintensive task. The feathers are plucked and any tiny strays are burned off with a flame. The cockscombs are then washed, blanched and soaked in lemon juice to loosen the tough skin. The entire staff, even the busboys, gather around the kitchen table every Wednesday to peel off this outer layer. “You have to handle the crests gently, like a beautiful woman, so as not to ruin the pretty tips” Chef Beppe laughs. Sannakji is a raw Korean dish that consists of live octopuses with sesame and sesame oil. It looks safe but the little tentacles may choke you to death if they get stuck in your throat. Elephant Dung Beer How many times have you been drinking with the boys and said “This beer is alright, but I wish it contained more elephant dung”? Well your disgusting prayers have been answered! Sankt Gallen, a Japanese brewery, created this and it sold out in just a few hours. That’s right struggling small business owners, this guy made elephant poop beer and made a ton of money. Enjoy your day! 37

HUMOUR A guy walks into a bar with a pet alligator by his side. He puts the alligator up on the bar and turns to the astonished patrons. “I’ll make you a deal. I’ll open this alligator’s mouth and place my genitals inside. Then the gator will close his mouth for one minute. He’ll then open his mouth and I’ll remove myself unscathed. In return for witnessing this spectacle, each of you will buy me a drink.” The crowd murmurs their approval. The man stands up on the bar, drops his trousers and places his privates in the alligator’s open mouth. The gator closes his mouth as the crowd gasps. After a minute, the man grabs a beer bottle and raps the alligator hard on the top its head. The gator opens his mouth and the man removes his genitals, unscathed, as promised. The crowd cheers and he receives the first of his free drinks. The man stands up again and makes another offer: “I’ll pay anyone $100 who’s willing to give it a try.” A hush falls over the crowd. A moment later, a hand goes up in the back of the bar. “I’ll try” says a small woman “but you have to promise not to hit me on the head with the beer bottle.”

“Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl.” The priest asks “Is that you, little Joey Pagano?” “Yes, Father, it is.” “And who was the girl you were with?” “I can’t tell you, Father. I don’t want to ruin her reputation.” “Well, Joey, I’m sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?” “I cannot say.” “Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?” “I’ll never tell.” “Was it Nina Capelli?” “I’m sorry but I cannot name her.” “Was it Cathy Piriano?” “My lips are sealed.” “Was it Rosa DiAngelo, then?” “Please, Father! I cannot tell you.” The priest sighs in frustration. “You’re very tight lipped and I admire that. But you’ve sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself.” Joey walks back to his pew and his friend Franco slides over and whispers “What’d you get?” “Four months vacation and five good leads.”
