Grim Reaper's Eulogy

"One love, one heart, let's get together and feel alright." Takes me back to the islands, mon'. Dis is de beer of Jamaica! Hooray beer! ®

Good drinker on hot sultry days and Caribbean nights for that matter. I'm speaking from experience. That buffalo soldier on the right is 26 years in the grave; exported straight from the island. I wanted to see what has changed, so its empty remains were exhumed from the crypt. Aside from the "imported" label on the recently deceased fellow, it seems they haven't messed with success in over 75 years. The chubby painted bottles seem to slip neatly into my bony phalanges.

This is one of the best Jamaican exports along with Bob Marley, that Olympic bobsled team and a certain unmentionable earthly crop, (not necessarily in any particular order.) So my friends, put some reggae music in your earbuds and enjoy some of this cool running lagered "brain wash". You'll be whisked away to the islands in no time at all. Peace out.
