The Ancient Potato Eaters Win


How appropriate.

The tied-winners of our most recent poll (asking what your 40 ounce malt liquor of choice is) run parallel with Jeff and I's cultural backgrounds. He's a leprechaun-faced, fuck-the-Brits, Once-obsessed, Mickey's-drinking Irish folker. I'm a rambling, geezer-toothed, shitty-diapered, wisdom-spitting Old English head. And apparently, our audience is split right down the middle, each giving props to their respective chilled bottles at a hefty 37% a piece.

-Tied at second with 12% of the vote each, we have our old standbys, Steel Reserve aka "211% Stronger" and St. "Crooked Letter" Ides. We've spent many a night together with these frothy dames.

-Unfortunately for the rest of our contestants, they each pulled in a whopping 0% of the thousands (or was that 8?) of votes received. The failures: "Hide from the Cops" Camo; Country Club, the Gentleman's Choice; Fake 40s (filled with watery swill, i.e. Coors); Some other equally tasty IQ depleter...not with this crowd; here we respect our elders and the wee-little peoples.

And what do our lucky winners receive? A trip to 40oz Heaven:
Enjoy.

I don't really hate the Brits. I just despise them and resent the fact they spent hundreds of unwelcome years in my homeland.

By the way, I'm glad the blog is back in full effect.

I'll do everything within my power to support this blog to keep the postings flowing. Plus, Mickey's rocks the plant! Not "the planet," but instead, "the plant!" Not a typeo.

does M/D (mad dog) count as a malt liquor?? I mean, what is that stuff anyway?? I had some "purple rain" the other night and it tasted like dymatap...
anyway... Im was once a fan of St. Ides.
