Brickbat: Australians for Beer


People living in an apartment complex in New South Wales, Australia, locked down because of COVID-19, say officials are searching through their deliveries and seizing alcoholic beverages. New South Wales Health admits it is trying to limit the amount of alcohol residents of the building are drinking to "ensure the safety of health staff and residents." Residents are limited to six beers or mixed drinks, one bottle of wine, or one 375-milliliter (13-ounce) bottle of distilled spirits a day.

    1. Want to drink, pay your own way in life. Like my mom used to say, “As long as you live in my house, you’ll live by my rules”.

      1. So the whole fucking continent [of Australia] is akin to your mother’s house?

        1. Well, they drink a lot of Fosters, so…

          1. No they don’t. Most Australian’s despise Fosters and it has a tiny share of the beer market there.

            1. If I had a fosters for every time some dumb ass kiwi or Aussie said that I’d.. have a shit ton of Fosters

        2. Where’ve you been the last 18 months? I’m half expecting the whole country to start wearing diapers so the nanny state can change them

          1. That’s why the Australian government is limiting alcohol intake. You wanna change all those piss filled saggy diapers?

      2. Ummmm, whose country do you think it is?

        The country belongs to The People, not the Health Service.

  3. Milliliters per Oz

    2. I see what you did there. Nice one.

  4. If it’s for their own good, why not two beers or one glass of wine per day?
    That is what the experts recommend.
    Enjoy your slavery, Australians!

    1. And just watch; as long as they still can, Australians will continue to vote in politicians who will continue to do this and more to them.

      And there are none too few in this country who see Australia as a model of governance.

      1. Could you please help us Down Under countries elect leaders as good as those you elect?

        I’m not much of a religious person but the bible says something about the log in your own eye….

  5. Fight and you may die. Run, and you’ll live…at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days, from this day to that, for one chance – just one chance – to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives but they’ll never take our lagers!

    1. A man who has no drink which he is willing to fight for, no drink which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

  6. I know the new austrilian laws
    1. No Pooftas
    2. no member of the faculty is to maltreat the Abbos in any way at all — if there’s anybody watching
    3. No Pooftas
    4. I don’t want to catch anybody not drinking
    5. No Pooftas
    6.there is NO … Rule Six
    7. No Pooftas

  7. I wouldn’t confiscate a Foster’s if you paid me to.

    1. They don’t call ’em “oil cans” for nothing, mate.

  8. Foster’s care

    1. It’s Australian for totalitarianism, Mate!

      1. Confiscated beer will be placed in Foster’s care.


    There are 24 hours in a day, and 24 beers in a case.
    This is evolution at it’s finest.

  10. What about weed and asssex?

  11. The end of every day is the perfect time to let your imagination run wild and declare yourself to that special someone. A simple goodnight message can bring a smile, but a very passionate and romantic phrase is even better!

  12. The left in this country is just itching to emulate this shit. They are proto fasicsts on their way to full hard core fascism.

    1. crypto-fascist.

  13. First, they were disarmed.

    1. Well, sorta kinda; you notice these stories are all from the cities.
      From that well know conservative holdout, Wikipedia –
      It has been estimated that, as at 2017, there were 3,158,795 firearms in private hands in Australia, of which 414,205 were unregistered.
      Nevertheless, conservative estimates are that there may be about 260,000 unregistered or prohibited firearms in the community, including assault rifles.
      Both of these conflicting numbers are from citied “sources”

  14. A country founded as a penal colony has become a country run by prison guards.

  15. Any Australian caught violating this will appear before a kangaroo court.

    1. You’re jumping to conclusions.

  16. 375 a day isn’t enough to put up with that shit. That is cruel and unusual punishment. You need at least 750 a day.

    1. So, you’re pleading the fifth?

  17. Are they seizing yeast, malted barley, and fruit? If not this problem can be fixed in just a few days with a single Amazon order. Ok, several days after the order arrives. I’d be surprised if the needed ingredients and equipment weren’t already on the premises.

    Heck, I’ve accidentally fermented a marinara sauce once when making pizza. Some of the dough yeast must have gotten into the sauce jar and a week later the lid was bulging and the sauce was frothy even at refrigerator temperatures.
