Not being able to hold one’s beer can be disastrous.
It can have a negative impact on social standing and reputation, even make a laughing stock of to whatever gender one likes to stick things in or have things stuck in by; maybe it’s a two-way street of insertions – it’s not for me to make judgements, cast any assertions.
A little pinkie poking like a childish tongue from a pint-clutching hand is often seen as quite the pub etiquette faux pas (unless the holder’s a regular dart thrower).
But this isn’t the poem, that’s below; though for the record I tuck mine under – a handy little trick for keeping it out of sight and the beer from falling asunder.
If drinking beer
From the can
Hold it tightly
Round the top
Unless you want
Like a big baby
With a great big
Baby sippy cup
Thanks for reading 🙂

I also tuck my pinkie under. Far too many glasses broken in my pre-pinkie-tucking time.
