Helium Lager

The more you drink, the squeakier you get.

Make lager using Helium instead of Carbon Dioxide to make it "Fizzy", imagine a couple of drunks trying to get another pint come last orders. Or, someone trying to pick a fight with you, sounding like Donald Duck. I mean, lets be honest, you would just piss yourself laughing wouldn't you.....

       Would helium make a drink fizzy?  I'm thinking no.

       Is there a chance that if I skull enough beer quickly enough that I could potentially float away. Or just feel lighter on my feet..?

       Bristolz: Well, I don't know. Nitrogen bubbles form in the blood stream when divers ascend too quickly, so maybe Helium bubbles would form in a Keg of beer under pressure.....

       That may be but the helium would need to be inhaled in order to change the pitch of your voice. Unless of course you are one of those people that can talk while burping.   

       [Supercruiser] Your idea is something Roald Dhal played on, in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". Willy Wonka invented Fizzy Lifting Gas, which Charlie tried, and subsequently he had to belch heartily in order to return to ground. [link]

       ... except [Fishrat], me old chum, that's only in the film version. In the book Charlie merely asks about the produce.

       Next you'll be telling me Augustus Gloop didn't nearly drown in the chocolate river. Still, as long as the Oompah Loompahs are real, I'm happy.
