Okay, it says "hot beverage", but we can pretend, can't we?

Bleah. Since Guinness-on-tap is hands down my favorite beer, I feel obligated to point out that it tastes best when cool, which is how they serve it.

Not ice-cold, which is the only way one can gag down piss-yellow Bud or Miller Lite. yak.gif yecch.gif

Is bash.gif “Bible Basher” bash.gif the UK equivalent of “Bible Thumper ” in the US, or something different?

I guess a bit of “Who's On First” — or any old set piece turning on the overly literal pixilation of words — is fine for a spiel-spell of comic relief, in good Joysprickian fashion, but if it gets too far out of frame, I'll have to purge it to the Purgatorio of Politick and Religion.

Kato, you might want to get yourself checked for a condition known as irony deficiency.

Hersch, your piece began with a straight faced proclamation that during the recent Irish bail out talks, the Irish have dealt a blow to the British Empire!

If you could distinguish efforts at irony from the rest of that gibberish, please do! laugh.gif

The irony, dear friend, lies in the fact that the UK claims already to be Christian, and in fact possesses a quasi-theocracy where the monarch is also the head of an established church.

Clearly the Christian thing to do, is let the Irish go fish, as happened in the potato famine. rolleyes.gif It beats the Cromwell treatment, at least.

Though I think it's safe to say that while the Irish are in trouble, they're doing better, relative to the UK and Europe now, than they ever have in history. They just spent themselves broke with retirement and entitlement programs, like the rest of Europe. And business is bad all over. Ouch, but that can be fixed. It's not like their kids are so short of vitamin C that they just sometimes fall over and die. Which used to happen happen to the Irish not that long ago.

Bear in mind that Ireland doesn't want or need a bailout. It's the banks that are bankrupt, and most of them aren't even Irish banks. The Irish are being asked to take a truly staggering cut in their standard of living in order to co-sign a bailout of foreign financiers.

Banks don't really have a nationality, they are global. They are the parasites feeding off the body politic. They need to be destroyed.
