A Guy in Iowa is Giving Up Food For Lent . . . And Just Drinking Beer!!!
I'm not the Pope or anything, but if observing Lent causes you to drink MORE alcohol, you're doing it wrong.
--A man named J. Wilson in Corning, Iowa is giving up FOOD for Lent. And instead, he's just going to DRINK BEER.
--It's not just any beer, though. Wilson says he was researching Franciscan monks and found that they sometimes sustained themselves during Lent on a special, high-carb beer.
--So he brewed some of that beer himself, and now he's going six weeks on four glasses per day.
--Each glass has 300 calories, so he'll get a total of 1,200 calories each day. A doctor is going to be monitoring his health.
--Wilson says, quote, "I want to educate beer-people about God . . . and I want to educate God-people about beer."
I gotta know: What did you give up for lent? Did you give up anything? Is it killing you, or have you become used to living without it?
Join us after 6am tomorrow morning on The Wake Up Call, and tell us your lenten sacrifice!
