The PBR* burglar alarm...

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Fargo police said an apartment tenant who set empty beer cans in front of his door to alert him to intruders ended up fighting with an alleged burglar. Sgt. Bill Ahlfeldt said police were called early Tuesday after a report of two elderly men attacking each other.

Ahlfeldt says a 61-year-old man who lives in the same building was arrested on suspicion of burglary.

Ahlfeldt said the man appeared to be intoxicated, and it's possible he believed he was entering his own apartment.

No apparent reason given for the "beer can alarm". Wonder how long it took to collect enough empties for the thing? "Back in the day" I'd probably have taken about two weeks, tops. That assumes we're talking about enough cans to completely cover a door.

Good thing I didn't have a drinking problem.

*PBR=Pabst Blue Ribbon. Hey, it always beat "Billy Beer"!

Beer cans...a lot cheaper than a full security system and much more fun to install. Sounds like a winner to me!

Ah, Billy Beer! There's a blast from the pabst.


Couldn't resist.

Arby, ouch!

And we're wasting our money feeding these barking dogs. Of course, they do have big sharp teeth.

Harry, the PBR alarm is cheap but the drawback comes when you're passed out from all the "work" of getting the empties and so unable to hear the alarm.

So dog food (and it's end product) might be worth the expense.

But you'd need to live in an apartment where pets are allowed.

Guess theres no perfect solution.
