A Georgia man may want to reconsider his priorities after running back into a house fire to rescue a few beers that had been left behind....
Walter Serpit, and two children were in the living room of their Columbus, Ga., home on Thursday afternoon when smoke began pouring in. All eight people made it outside safely, but Serpit, with the aid of his cane, went back for what really mattered -- his beer.
"I told them to get the kids out and everything, and me myself, being an alcoholic, I was trying to get my beer out," Serpit said. "You feel me?"

Well, did he save the beer?
Sheez. You could post the point of the article, at least.
WWII - My uncle went back in the tent for the coffee pot. Got shot in the a**. Got a purple heart. Mom didn’t tell me the story until I was 50.
It depends. If it were good beer such as Sam Adams or a nice IPA, I can understand. If it were “sex in a canoe” type “beer” such as bud lite, then the guy was a fool.
Priorities dude. Priorities.
I’m pretty sure he was a black guy but I’m sure the love of beer can transcend race.
You owe me a keyboard. :-)
“It wasn’t beer. It was Bud Lite.”
If that’s the case, then he was simply trying to pour some piss on the fire to put it out.
Was he “headin’ back to Bowlegs?”
Yep me too. We got our priorities. :-)
“With the aid of his cane.”
If ever there was a man who deserved a free scooter chair, this is him. He could have saved two or three cases with a scooter chair.
Watch this while I save muh beer.
Damn. But at least he admits that he’s an alcoholic and stupid. Maybe some good will come of this.
