Default Do you remove or toss?

On a lighter note, when one finds a bug in their drink do you remove it and continue drinking or do you toss it and pour another?

You simply cannot throw out a perfectly good drink because of a bug! Heck if I did that on the island I would get pretty dry!

First you have to grab the bug and tell 'em to "spit it out".

If he's far enough along, I'll let him finish but he gets the next round.

Just don't remove the umbrella. It's there for protection--safe drinking, as it were. Or drink through the straw.

Default Bug-a-boo

Gently lift the invader onto the table and watch it stagger around. Great summer fun for all, including the bug. 🎉

Remove the drink, keep the bug. Oh, and order another round of bugs.

You can't toss it if you ordered "bug juice".

It seems rather confusing that "bug juice" isn't either 1) made out of bugs or 2) made for bugs.

Default Bug Juice

It's made at youth camps for the young 'uns that may bug you! It's very refreshing on a hot summer's day! 🐻

I would not be at all concerned be one bug sipping at my drink. Hard to imagine it drinking enough to render the drink a toss away.

It depends on how many drinks I had before the invader landed

Usually just goes down with the rest of the drink...the alcohol will kill any thing bad and you get the added bonus of extra protein

If it was a big ol' dock spider, he might spit out half the drink. Those dock spiders have a nasty habit of taking a sip when folks aren't looking. Seen a couple of 'em so drunk, had the cops come and take them down to the station. One had a alcohol level of 0.29%. Been wading in a whiskey, straight up. Downed the whole thing, even licked the glass. Ever notice when you walk by with a drink in your hands, them eye-balling you?

Cool toss or not

I was at The Docks and a bug was in my beer, the barmaid Kim said, Don't tell anyone, they will all want one.

Default Thank God for Bugs

Keep the glass, get another for the bug, get the bug drunk, call the cops, bust him for speeding in his drink, drink his drink, find another bug, tell him what happened to the last guy, if he doesn't balk, he's an alcoholic, get him in treatment, count on recidivism, order a blazing hot toddy, let him take his place, watch him melt, patent the new drink, make a billion dollars, buy Governor's Island, sell it in ten years to a trillionaire for 100 billion dollars, thank God for bugs.

Fine print: if you don't follow every step, it won't work.

Thumbs down When Tips are Added to the Bill...

Customer to Bartender:

"What's this bug doing in my drink?"


Bartender to Customer:

"Umm...the backstroke?"
