In Loving Memory And Tribute To Smokin' Joe, the Late Great Joe Frazier:

(cue Card Girls)


"When You Order A Beer -
Be Like Smokin' Joe.
Order Lite Beer From Miller -
And Say No Mo'."


"It's Got A Third Less Calories
That Its' Regular Beer -
Lite Tastes Great,
Y'all Be Listening Here."


"It's Not The Taste That MAKES Me Shout -
Lite's Less Fillin' -
THAT Really Knocks Me Out."


(Dead Silence From The Crowd Until Smokin' Joe Glowers At Them - At That Point The Entire Club Applauds)


(Miller Lite's Greatest All Time Commercial)


Good-bye Joe.

Thank you.

We'll Never Forget You, Dude.
