If you're gonna learn one theory in life, this is the
one...I have not seen anyone explain this as well as
Cliff Clavin, on the sitcom Cheers.
One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff was explaining the
Buffalo Theory to his buddy Norm, and here's how it
The Buffalo Theory "Well ya see Norm, it's like
this...A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the
slowest buffalo. When the herd is hunted, it is the
slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed
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
Excessive intake of alcohol, as we all know, 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.
That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."
