Is this what Kevorkian puts in his suicide machine?

Beer, with nicotine. Hooray beer,,,and nicotine?

A German company has come up with a novel way of beating bans on smoking in pubs - put the nicotine in the beer.

A new beer, known as NicoShot, is undergoing testing in Germany with hopes it can be moved toward approval in the next few months.

Each beer contains three milligrams of nicotine and a 6.3 per cent alcohol reading.

Its German maker, Nautilus, claims the beer is designed to help smokers quit the habit rather than make the drink addictive.

For anyone who gets the jitters from not being able to smoke in a bar, you can continue getting hammered while enjoying a smoke, or at least the nicotine, without leaving the bar. Why not have a nurse insert a catheter while your at it, you won't need to go to the john the entire night.

Good heavens, maybe they could add caffeine too. That beer could be called "NightCap" so you can stay awake while driving home drunk.

I can see it now, a tavern operated like a Jamba Juice.
Yes, I would like a Lager beer with the nicotine shot, a power boost, and double caffeine, oh and an anti-oxidant boost too.

That will be $7.95 sir, would you like some soup with that?

Oh man that brings me back to the days I was a bouncer. Could you imagine some who is not only drunk, but has got the nico fix and an esspresso kick!!!?

Not only that but if this gets through, we will soon see the Philip Moris commercials combined with the Miller commercials both telling you to drink reponsibly! For you dippers, think about the backwash potential, take a swig and spit back into the same bottle!!! That would bring a whole new meaning to "nursing the bottle!"

Thanks Cowboy for the laugh, disturbing as is it is... one last thought: I can't wait to see the TRUTH commercial on this one... picture a boardroom with eight suites, four from the beer industry and four from the tabaco industry trying to figure how they could combined efforts. The door blows open and guy wearing a lab coat with a German accent screams "I 'ave doone eet!"
