Is it Beer O’Clock yet? That hour tends to arrive early this time of year. Caution is advised:

A 21-year-old Perth man is lucky to be alive after having his stomach ripped open during a beer-skolling game using a home-made device powered by an electric pump.

The drinking game at a 21st birthday party in a southern suburb 10 days ago went badly wrong, rupturing the man’s stomach and forcing beer straight into his abdomen.

Via reader Chris Howell. Possibly the victim was using a mechanised version of the BeerMaster 5000:

    1. Who needs to be forced to drink beer?  Wimps.

    1. Hawkie never needed technological enhancement to be a world champion beer drinker.

      For the benefit of foreigners and people under the legal drinking age, Hawkie is Bob Hawke, the man who just about wrecked the country as the leading trade union advocate and then had to try to put it back together when he became the Prime Minister in 1983.

      He was a Rhodes Scholar from Western Australia and during his sojourn in Oxford he consumed a large quantity of beer (a yard?) in world record time.

      Mr Google will tell you all you need to know about Rhodes Scholars.

    1. So you Australians require machines that force beer into you.  Sad, sad, and bordering on the pathetic.  Perhaps you folks should stick with lemonade or iced tea.

    1. Nothing to do with needing it forced mate, its all about efficiency.

    1. David, please note that Perth, where the fateful event happened, is not usually regarded as a part of Australia, except on weekends during the Australian football season.

    1. “Health experts yesterday warned people not to build gadgets that allowed the rapid consumption of large amounts of alcohol.”

      Has anyone in all human history ever taken the advise of “health experts?”

    1. We must take a stand against the ongoing mechanization of man’s work:

      John Henry was big, his lager was strong,
      His Guinness was stout, never used a beer bong…

    1. We call it “Beer:30”

    1. That thing should humble Americans who think they invent all the good stuff. Hell, it probably cures cancer, too.

    1. He’s lucky. When I was his age we used to dream of electric pump-driven drinking machines.

    1. Doesn’t anyone ‘shotgun’ a beer anymore?

    1. That device is a beerzooka I think.

    1. I prefer beer bongs myself, but this new device may have promise.  Speed is very important for busy people who don’t have time to get drunk.
