Beer Flows from the Kitchen Faucet

A woman in Norway witnessed a miracle recently as beer issued forth from the faucet in her kitchen sink:
By an improbable feat of clumsy plumbing, someone at the bar in Kristiandsund, western Norway, had accidentally hooked the beer hoses to the water pipes for [Haldis] Gundersen's apartment.

"We had settled down for a cozy Saturday evening, had a nice dinner, and I was just going to clean up a little," Gundersen, 50, told The Associated Press by telephone Monday. "I turned on the kitchen faucet and beer came out."

However, Gundersen said the beer was flat and not tempting, even in a country where a half-liter (pint) can cost about 25 kroner ($3.75) in grocery stores.
Link. Which reminds me of a reading from the Gospel according to D.L. Hughley:
—"Lord, we done run outta wine!"
—"Now normally, I don't do this, but, uh . . . go on head, enjoy the party."

Especially on Purim. Cursed is Haman!
