    Talking Some people take their drinking seriously!

    BANDERA, Texas (Reuters) - A jury on Thursday handed a life prison sentence to a Texas man who shot and killed a longtime friend he accused of drinking the last beer in his refrigerator.

    Jurors deliberated for less than two hours before passing the sentence on Steven Brasher, 42, for the murder of Willie Lawson, 39, on Nov. 5 last year.

    "There was only two beers left, so I took one, and I told Willie not to take my last beer," Brasher said in a taped statement that was played during the trial.

    Testimony showed Brasher shot Lawson in the head with a pistol after the two began arguing over the missing beer. Brasher maintained the shooting was an accident.

    Come on, Everyone knows the rules regarding this...Never mess with a man's wife(without permission), never harm a man's best friend and Never, never mess with a man's last beer...

    Just Kidding. In all seriousness this is Un-Fuggin-believable... I think the guy had one too many and probably didn't need that last beer anyway...What's that they say about Alcohol and firearms????

    [Is this projected-darwanism?]

    There was a funny one in NY 2 months ago.... A guy had to go in to a hearing on a DUI and showed up drunk.
