The Duke of Wellington, although born in Ireland never considered himself Irish. When someone pointed out to him that being born there meant that he was Irish, he replied: "If a man is born in a stable, that doesn't make him a horse." :lol:

It makes him the messiah ;)

I do find it odd that an entire country seems to take personal responsibility for an alcoholic drink, and the pouring thereof. Can all Irish pour it properly then? :P
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

Most of em. Its not that hard but foreigners seem immune to the concept of waiting a minute half way through.

When I did barmaidage, my pints of genius were always perfect.

By English standards maybe ;) . I was in a pub in Brummie and they had a poster over the bar detailing how to pour a pint of Guinness correctly using the two steps. Ordered a pint and they poured it in one go and gave me the thing with a 5 inch head. I refused it naturally and nearly got battered by the BNP style regulars.

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

I can't see it selling, but I can see a lot of people wanting to look round it!

A good bit indeed. :D
I absolutely love the "i'm not" individual reply in response to the "We are all different!",that just works on so many levels... :geek: ;)

What had me smiling today,was mostly the cloudcover,which meant a much more relaxed walk in less crowded and polluted parks. :mrgreen:
