I wish to ask, why Guinness beer is splattering over my desk?
I had opened three cans, and all of them had sputtered their valuable contents over my table covered with papers. Papers are not so precious as is mine beer. So, the question laid here contains an accusation as to the propensity of cans going to share their precious contentedness not divulged before Drool .
I am not sure, perhaps certain Emma could share more relevant information on this problem Drool .

Maybe you should try opening just one can at a time......

Seems to me a simple case of overspill.

EDIT - Maybe not a case -- are you even up to a six-pack yet?

Certain Bear in question, when I was not older than 4 years, said to me: ''Herzogtum'' and put on my both shoulders small patches of material with strange emblems. Erfurt and Zerbst. And I remember it. I was not older than 4. And this was the beginning of a course. Or curse, if you prefer.

If you really want to get technical.......... cans of Guinness contain a 'widget' which is designed to make the beer froth when the can is opened. Guinness is not Guinness unless it has a good head on it and has been allowed to settle.
I think you should have a look at this- you can't rush a good thing, you see?

EDIT: Hang on! Why am I telling you this? You're in Ireland for goodness sake! Go and find a proper pint and forget the cans!

It happens because it is quite simply the law. Murphy's law.

Look, how about this? Let's pretend we've had the row and I've won. See? It saves a lot of effort.

Didn't there use to be a 'Not suitable for apres ski' warning on the cans?

Perhaps your advice is suitable up to the point. But you need to know, that it is not so easy to get a proper Guinness at a place, you may wish to enjoy.
Thank you.

You even tried using your straw?

Whistle

Get over it, Mate, and graduate to glass bottles instead of tinnies.

Shame on you

On a more serious note, this is more likely to happen when you've just brought them home and they've been jostled a bit along the way. Give them a chance to settle in before the kill.

Also, be humane. Don't linger over the pulling of the tab, but take it all at once and decisively.

Like the song said:

"Spill the beer and
Dig that bird!"
Whistle


"Make it go away, Mrs Whatsit," he whispered. "Make it go away. It's evil."
