Childrens' story books -

Goldilocks and the Three Beers - no, not a story about an underage drinker
We're Going on a Beer Hunt - nothing to do with searching for somewhere to buy alcohol

Animals -
Polar Beer - an animal found in the Arctic, not a beverage found in The Ice Bar

Any more?

Panda Beer. You wake up with dark rings round your eyes after 10 pints.

Grizzly Beer. That'll be Gold Export..horrible stuff.

Koala Beer. Fosters?

The Beertles were a very popular group from Liverpool in the 60's and produced some great songs for children too.

The other day my wife said that the dick was looking a bit tired. No worries I said, just help me giving the dick a good old oiling and it will come back up! Good as new.

It's an old one, but a good one!

Apparently lots of people commute by fairies that go to Downtown Auckland on a regular basis.

Conversely, Ear New Zealand have got an Earpoints ferry, seemingly this ferry is capable of granting wishes.
