The Lost Boys

Once upon a time there was beer and there were boys. Two boys. We called them The Beer Boys. And they are lost. In fact, they have been lost for quite a while now. The question is: where are they? 

I know, their disappearance is as shocking, nay, as baffling as the mystery of my missing blue shoe. Where are they... where are they...? I'm racking my mind as to what could've happened. But dispair not, my friends, because deep cover inspector Blue is hot on their trail. They just don't know it yet. I will solve this puzzle if it's the last thing I'll ever do.

Of course it's not like I have very little on my plate. I mean, here are some of the mysteries I need to get solved within the next 48 hours or else my blue behind's bound to get fired:

  • Did Fred Flintstone build the pyramids or was it Wilma? 
  • How did people wipe their butts in the 18th century? 
  • Is Dr. Phil really a doctor? 
  • Is Trump's hair genetically modified or is it a Venom spin-off? 
  • What happened to that poor Loch Ness monster after Ted Danson ruined its reputation? 
  • Where is that frigging blue shoe? 
  • Where are The Beer Boys?

That's some list. Anyway, the last time I heard from Bryan and Brandon was on October 16, 2017. Go figure. We're talking over a year ago. But when I say I'm hot on their trail, I kid you not.

Look what I discovered the other day (and, dare I say, not entirely accidentally)...

I'm close on this one. I'm very close on this one.
I will keep you posted.

In the meantime, should you fine civilians have any info regarding the disappearance of the infamous Beer Duo, contact your local police station, Tom Cruise or, well, me. But only if you can find me, because I'm deep DEEP cover.

This message will self-destruct.

November 21: CASE CLOSED


  1. Check with Robyn at Life By Chocolate. She talks with them all the time and one of them is her editor.
    I've actually seen that Loch Ness monster movie... I don't know if that's a good or bad thing.

    1. I knew they were somewhere.

      I've seen it too.
      I ended up sniffing my shoe.

    2. I do miss them online though. They were never afraid to speak their minds, even if it wasn't PC.

    3. That's exactly what I mean, Alex. I miss them too. Not enough people on this planet who speak their minds.

  2. How did people wipe their butts in the 18th Century? I imagine very much like we do. The bigger questions is "with what" did people wipe their butts?

  3. One has a poop machine and the other is doing an animated movie at his scene. At least that is what Robyn said. Now we put it to bed. On to Nessie or a cow named Bessie.

  4. No one likes to lose friends. Hope the Beer Boys make an appearance soon.

  5. The toupee being a symboite would make sense.

  6. I hope Robyn can reunite you with the beer boys.

  7. Thank goodness I'm on a different continent, this promises to get rowdy, hee heeee hee

  8. That's the thing about knowing people "only" online. When they disappear, sometimes its hard to reconnect with them. Hope you can with the Beer Boys and soon!


    1. It's a matter of time, but it's the weirdest thing.

      Thanks for stopping by, betty.

  9. I thought the Beer Boys did that song, "(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party!)" No, wait, those were the Beastie Boys. Never mind.

    It bothers me when someone's blog ends without notice. In case I write my blog until I die, I've already written my final post, to be posted after my death.

    1. I've asked the Missus to write my final post.

      Let's get very old.

  10. Not seen the film but - I like the Nessie legend - so good for tourists!

    All the best Jan

    1. Hi Jan, I like the legend, too, but that movie was plain awful.

  11. LOL! Keep going Blue! You will find them!

  12. I miss those guys too Blue - I bought a couple of their books.
    Robyn's connected with them still. I saw a photo on her blog.

    Shall we have a toast Blue to the beer guys - True's choice today. Shipyard Pumpkin Beer with a light dusting of sugar and cinnamon on the rim. Licking my lips...yum...hey, I need a sugar fix.

    haha - I love the artwork...

  13. I've no idea who those people are... I only miss Anne O'Leary in the blogosphere... and maybe Dixie a bit...

  14. Blue, I'll make sure Bryan sees this post and feels the love. Their blog is sorely missed, yet I'm a lucky gal to have the friendship. And who'd have thought this puritan-ish middle age Jewish gal, who doesn't drink and is tech challenged, would sustain a friendship with one of the beer boys. (Brandon's pretty much MIA.) Bryan and I have regular contact. =) Cheers.

    1. Thank you, Robyn. I appreciate that. I also like the -ish in puritan-ish. Why do you think that is? :)


  15. Last I heard, Bryan was sold to an Ethiopian sweat shop and makes flip flops for 10 cents an hour, and Brandon's currently in the infamous migrant caravan that's barreling precariously toward our Wall™. What he's doing on that side of the Wall™ we may never know. Having kids does strange things to a person's judgment.

    That information may also be wrong, though. My informant is an idiot. I am also my own informant.

    The cat's out of the bag. I started my own animation studio out of my house (Little Man Animation - me being the little guy vs the world), and I'm currently working on an animated film called The Escape Artist. I wanted to blog about it and work on it at the same time, but this is a full time gig, and it's either talk about it or do it. I'd rather just do it.

    Everything could not be better right now, and big things are coming. I think you have my e-mail still. It's never changed. If you ever want to know what's up, drop me a line.

    I'm three dimensional, bitches.


    1. How about actual animation studio. Can't say I'm surprised, though. Well, more power to you, Bryan. Them bitches tell me you look great, now that's you are three frigging dimensional. So true: doing it (what?) is so much more interesting and um rewarding than talking about it. Yes, I'm quoting you. What did you think I was talking (bad! talking is bad!) about?

      Little Man Animation... I like the sound of that.

      As for your email, I couldn't find it anywhere. (Imagine a blue guy cursing... It's hard, I know.)

      Good to hear from you again!

      Two dimensional Blue

      It's good to hear from you, too. Don't be a stranger. And Happy Thanksgiving, if you're in to that kind of thing.

    3. I won't Bryan. Happy Thanksgiving and don't let those bed bugs bite. Man, it's been a long day...
