The Buffalo Theory - By Cliff Claven


> One of my all time favorites!!

> In one episode of 'Cheers', Cliff is seated at the bar describing the

> 'Buffalo Theory' to his buddy Norm. I don't think I've ever heard the

> concept explained any better than this.


> "Well, you see, Norm, it's like this...A herd of buffalo can only move

> as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the

> slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first.


> "This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the

> general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the

> regular killing of the weakest members.


> "In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the

> slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive drinking of alcohol

> kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest

> brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates

> the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient

> machine.


> "And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers."
