[Note - "shotgunning" is an American tradition where a can of beer is held up-side down against the mouth after hole has been poked near the can's base. The can is opened, and the hole in the base causes the beer to come out very fast. The object of shotgunning is to attempt to drink all of the beer as it rushes out - ed] One night at a party, my friend Norm and I were pretty drunk and sitting on the couch, talking. I had the bright idea to dare him to shotgun a beer. "No," he said. "I dont wanna shotgunna beer." "Please?" I asked, hoping he would change his mind. "No," he said. This volley continued for a few minutes until finally Norm agreed to shotgun a beer, if only to stop me from bugging him. I handed Norm a fresh beer and a can opener with which to poke the hole. Norm proceeded to shake the heck outta the beer. When Norm was finally ready to shotgun to beer, he raised it, went to poke a hole in it and... The bottle broke.
