"Oil" can

It's a little-known Midwest trick -- a good squeeze of vodka into each bottle of beer prior to consumption. It kinda makes the harvest go more pleasantly, ya know?

Old Milwaukee

Not just any beer it's Old Milwaukee!

Lubricated

No way to top Bill Cary's pastiche, but I hope they're enjoying a Weizen, at least!

Well lubricated

Unbeknownst to Uncle Henry and Aunt Em, farm hands Hunk, Hickory, and Zeke relieved their boredom by beer. Together they drank a whiz of a fizz of suds at once, if ever, oh ever a beer there was.

Oh, do be careful with the fluids and don't drop that oil can Hunk, you might rust in place for ages or at least until a little girl happens by.
