Buffalo Theory

One night at Cheers, Cliff Clavin explained the”Buffalo Theory” to his buddy, Norm…

“Well ya see, Norm, it’s like this. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members…. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That’s why you always feel smarter after a few beers!”
Props to Beuks for the find.

  1. That other comment didn’t make sense. Pretend I said “that’s what she said!”

    Okay, DT.
    I say that all the time . . . “that’s what she said . . . ”
    It works so very well in so many different situations. :0)


  2. Of course beer makes you smart, after all it made Bud weiser 😉

    If I have to keep spellchecking your comments, I’ll start charging you per visit! 😉
