Frank Zappa Quote

“You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline -- it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.”

Right. Belize has a beer, Belikin, which tastes FINE the first time you drink it. Israel has a beer, but it takes three or four berfore it starts tasting OK. Belize doesn't have a bomb.

Even the prohibitionists have to love Zappa! Good ole humor! :-)

Quintessential Zappa. He broke down more barriers in the music business than any other musician. A true defender of 1st Amendment rights.
