Quotations: Robert Browning – Rats! They fought the dogs and killed the cats, and bit the babies in the cradles, and ate the cheeses out of the vats, and licked the soup from the cook’s own ladles, split open the kegs of salted sprats, made nests inside men’s Sunday hats.

David Adams – You can look at it from the performance of the whole fleet, to a given filling facility, right down to a unique keg. How many times that keg has been filled, when it was delivered, how long it takes to get back, what it’s carrying, and so on. It provides a level of granularity that had been missing.

Rick Schmidt – It’s hard to see with all the water coming down on you. You just go by the sound. If you hear it clang you know you’re hitting the keg. I am constantly moving the nozzle. It’s easier than really fighting a fire, you don’t have air tanks on, but you can’t always see the guy in front of you.

Peter Scales – We advise residents to use common sense with things like activities on porches. Avoid overcrowding them, and don’t load them down with heavy objects like beer kegs, and furniture and refrigerators. We’ve seen some odd things on porches over the years.

Sample sentences:

  • We lined up 10 people and had a guy throw a beer keg at them.
  • The knee jerk reaction to this sort of headline is to think of the Middle East as a powder keg.
  • I’m sometimes astonished at how much the German voter can take of this. It’s like a powder keg that has no clear trigger.
  • Kegs of beer are a major contributor to binge drinking. We won’t shut up until our voices are heard.
