“warm beer and cold women, I just don’t fit in
every joint I stumbled into tonight
that’s just how it’s been”
– Tom Waits, Warm Beer and Cold Women, Nighthawks at the Diner
One beer quote in particular is always attributed to Tom Waits:
“I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.”
I like the first one better for two reasons: 1) Mr. Waits did not come up with the second quote, Dorothy Parket did (I think): and 2) I can relate more to the first quote. But maybe that’s just because my refrigerator is about to shit the bed and my girl is always pissed off at me lately.
