WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A recently discovered government report says beer and soft drinks in sealed glass containers would be safe to drink in the event of a nuclear disaster!

In 1965, testing by the FDA and the Civil Defense Administration found the beverages could also be used as potable water in the event of an emergency.

Bottles were found to be mildly radioactive, but the radiation did not carry over to the contents.

Experts warn, do not expect your Coors or Coke to taste the same.

Taste testers of the drinks after a blast say the flavor is "definitely off".
