Mayor Otis Brewsky decided he was not going to let the town of Thirsty go thirsty. Mayor Brewsky, who also operate's Otis's Beer, Bait & Ammo decided to provide free beer to town's people (over 21, of course).
Brewsky explained, "There are only about a hundred adults in town. I decided to buy the first round by giving all adults a free 22 ounce of their choice. This town is so neighborly that the towns folk keep coming back in and buying the next round. So far, half the town has come in and bought a round for everyone plus bought their own beer. So really, the biggest problem isn't actually a water shortage but an ice shortage. More important than water, we need ice to keep the beer cold."
Since the town's water supply went dry, the beer sales have exploded 500%. Otis's Beer, Bait & Ammo has had to make extra beer deliveries every day.
"This town has always stuck together. A town that drinks together sticks together." resident Robin Coors said with a giggle. "We figure if everyone stays drunk we won't miss water."
The only incident reported to Thirsty Police was when Roscoe Reynolds tried to take a shower in beer. He forgot that his bull was crazy about beer. Once his bull got a whiff of him he chased him from one end of his 30 acre farm to the next.
Brewsky said, "We had to call in out of towners to help work on the water problem. Our water and sewage workers got so drunk they couldn't concentrate. They made up a game that every time someone said the word 'water' they all took a drink. As you could imagine, they all got pretty drunk."
Farmer Jack Ward said, "I'll tell you one thing! When we ran out of water and our crops were turning, we started irrigating with beer. Now, the tomatoes taste like Red Eye*. Ha, It kinda gives a new meaning to the term 'stewed tomatoes'. I even got drunk off the zucchini last night."
Thirsty, West Virginia is about to make last call as the water is expected to be flowing sometime tomorrow. "I guess we'll have time for one more party," said Mayor Brewsky, right before he passed out.
