Friday Funny: Plumbing Mix-Up Yields Beer | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings

This Friday Funny story appeared in Associated Press news earlier this week…

Last weekend in Norway, a woman turned on her kitchen faucet to find the water had turned into beer.

Two flights down, employees and customers at the Big Tower Bar were horrified when water poured out of the beer taps.

By an improbable feat of clumsy plumbing, someone at the bar in Kristiandsund, western Norway, had accidentally hooked the beer hoses to the water pipes for Haldis Gundersen’s apartment.

However, Gundersen said the beer was flat and not tempting, even in a country where a half-liter (pint) can cost about 25 kroner ($3.75) in grocery stores.

Per Egil Myrvang, of the local beer distributor, said he helped bartenders reconnect the pipes by telephone.

“The water and beer pipes do touch each other, but you have to be really creative to connect them together,” he told local newspapers.
