New Year’s may take place in mid summer down under, but these Aussies show that we are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike. They too love to celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another with extravagant feats of drinking, albeit with a twist. This is Australia, after all.

This seems like a terrible idea on so many levels. Firstly, roofs aren’t the most sanitary beer delivery system and are known to grow algae as well as serve as a hangout/bathroom for birds. Secondly, drinking while atop a slippery, slanted surface a minimum of 10 feet off the ground is a recipe for a broken limb. Finally, the only place worse than a roof for drinking shenanigans has to be a ladder. While the guys on the roof could, however unlikely, be totally sober, we know that whoever draws ladder duty will have impaired balance. That being said, you have to admire the creativity and bravery displayed in their quest for the ultimate roof beer. These guys are setting a tone for the new year that we can all get behind. And remember, getchya jawr in the guttah!
