Beer Of The Week

Let me see........ "Official Beer of England" "Definitely Not For Aussies" Then a back label blurb that gurgles "Sit back and enjoy the Ashes series in style with this easy drinking pale ale, crafted using the finest English hops and barley with passion and desire to beat the Aussies & cheer England to victory." Does that make sense? Do the finest English hops and barley have the passion and desire to beat the Aussies, or is it referring to the drinker? If so, how does one sit back and enjoy something with passion and desire? Is it a cricket thing? Does the Australian equivalent have a slogan along the lines of "You've No Chance Ya Pommy Bastards!"? It matters not to be honest, it's £1.19 a bottle and tastes rather nice. Thankfully, in Scotland we're far too civilised to get too excited by a silly game like cricket. We prefer proper sports like high tig, thumb wrestling and chap-door-runaway .

There is no Australian equivalent.

Australians wouldn't touch that rubbish, poncey, warm crap drunk by girls and poms.

And who'd have thought that ringing the door bell and running away even had a proper name, let alone a wikipedia entry!

Cocktails you pluralised chump, you'll be eating your words and apologising in person to the poncy warm crap.
