Anheuser Busch Sends 50,000 Cans of Water to Firefighters

Anheuser-Busch is like the big brother (with poor taste) that you mock from time to time. He works out all the time, was home coming king, has perfect hair and teeth and owns roller-blades. You tolerate him, but can't stand him. What you often forget is that he can be loving - But [...]
