MERRY XMAS!

I thought this of vital importance to you all (particularly Smoke, Eesus & Tuzilla, whom I know to partake)and thought I'd let y'all know.

Don't thank me - just spreading a little happiness.

Aww crap. This is going to raise all holy hell with my blood thinners.

Oh well. Thanks Martin. You're the beast.

Thanks for reminding people of the heart-healthy benefits of Guinness, Martin. I always take my morning baby aspirin with a pint and some oatmeal cookies.

Cirrhosis may get me, but I have the heart and arteries of a teenager.

Being a beer lover for decades I suppose this is good news although I will stick to my lagers and pilsners. Guinness gives me heartburn and acts as an explosive laxative on my system. I used to drink it mixed half & half with Molsons, a method I was introduced to years ago by U of M students at a bar in Ann Arbor.

Guinness used to be one of my favorite beers. This was when it came from Ireland.
Now the only Guinness available to me is produced in Canada. I am usually rather
frugal, but I poured many bottles down the drain.

Is nothing sacred?!

I was in a little Irish pub in Cape Code one time, drinking Guinness on tap, and it tasted watered down and flat. I complained and they told me that's how "real" Guinness was supposed to taste.

I'll never go back there. Besides, they kept playing that damn unicorn song over and over.

Lodi - I wish you hadn't made that typo.
I've had lots of pm's asking how many backs I have and it's starting to upset me.

Best Guinness I ever had was in Jamaica.
The beer was crap but we were eating at a beachfront restaurant (shack) watching a lightning storm out to sea - the guy in charge kindly moved our table into the surf, so that the wee shellfish could nibble our toes as we ate their cooked compadres.
Just as we finished, a rasta dude turned up and began to serenade us with a (badly played) song. Broke a string which he was too 'tired and emotional' to replace, so yours truly did it for him before embarking on a cross-cultural duet in which I knew more Marley lyrics than he did. (Or perhaps was only better able to sing them without passing out).

It may have been more than one (crap) Guinness now that I think about it.
