This is an urban legend/hoax . It first appeared in October 2001.

Thought you'd like to know what happened in a town north of Bakersfield California. After you finish reading this, please forward this story on to others so that our nation and around the world will know about those who laughed when they found out about the tragic events in New York, PA and the Pentagon.

September 11th, a Budweiser employee was making a delivery to a convenience store in a town called McFarland. He knew of the tragedy that had occurred in New York. He entered the business to find two Arabs whooping and hollering and really cheering it up. It was obvious they were elated with what had
happened earlier. The Budweiser employee went to his truck called his boss and told him of the very upsetting event. He didn't feel he could be in that store with those horrible people. His boss told him, "Do you think you could go in there long enough to pull every Budweiser product and item our beverage company sells there? We'll never deliver to them again."

The employee walked in, proceeded to pull every single product his beverage company provided and left with an incredible grin on his face. He told them never to bother and call for a delivery again.

Budweiser happens to be the beer of choice for that community. Just letting you all know how Kern County handles this situation! Pass this along. America needs to know that we're all working together.

Well, I need to add to this. My father in Nevada sent this to me. Fact is, I live not too far from McFarland here in Central California, and I heard about this at work the day after it happened. Seems a lot of people from work frequented the store in question. But it didn't end there.

As Paul Harvey might say, here's the rest of the story...

Seems the Budweiser driver had friends...in particular, the Pepsi route driver. The Bud driver called his Pepsi friend from his cell phone while he was still at the store and told him what happened. Seems the Pepsi driver called his boss, and received the identical orders the Bud driver did.

So Pepsi went in and took out everything in the store under their corporate brand. And if you know PepsiCo (Pepsi, Frito Lay, etc.), that's damn near EVERYTHING. Last I heard, that store has no product, no customers (word spreads fast in these small towns, y'know) and no hope. And I say good riddance to bad rubbish. I hope they enjoyed their cheers...it's the last they'll be doing in THIS country.

The smallest good deed is better than the grandest intention.

Both the marketing director for the Budweiser distributor for McFarland, and Anheuser-Busch claim they have investigated the story and state that they have found no evidence to corroborate it. In other words, it's rubbish, a sham, a hoax, an urban legend, etc.....

If you receive a message about this then please ignore it and don't pass it on as this only serves to propagate this hoax.
