[Sorry if this was already discussed, please point me to the old discussion in that case.]

Am I alone who confused by this new animated gif ?

Is it part of JavaRanch culture ?

Is it going to stay there forever now ?

Thanks,
MZ

From time to time something whimsical is added to this site. The moose is the main item, but the ranch house with moving smoke at the bottom of the page is another. The beer drinking man has been added to the collection.

He'll probably be there forever.

I'm curious to know why everything thinks he's drinking beer. There are plenty of other beverages it might be.

Because cream soda rarely makes people fall off their stools?

Perhaps, because GIF is named code-developer-beer.gif ?
