Guinness Ad
« on: March 15, 2012, 11:21:24 AM »
This was in my club e-mail,from Jeff Renner.  If you know British or Irish drinking culture, it might make you laugh.  The border collie is good. 

I would do for the curry...  mmm, curry.

Nice.  Just watched Babe with the kids, so this is very appropriate.

Makes me miss my old collie.  Damn dog.

Great ad. Reminded me of a Monty Python skit.
So it goes.

As a retired engineer, my spelling has become worse.  Dang it!

Thanks for the laughs.  Both the video and the idea that engineers can spell.   ;D

Psh!  I don't need a border collie to herd me to the nearest bar stool serving Guinness.   ;D

Blasphemy!!!

I suppose there are many things not to like about it, but a St. Paddy's Day celebration does not require drunken stooges vomiting in the street.

If I still have energy after the parade tomorrow, we will take the family to the Heritage Center for traditional music and Irish step dancing.  And draft Guinness at $5 a pop.

I avoid the bar scene as that's just full of tools.  Not that I go to bars much anymore anyway...

We're long time Border Collie lovers and owners and have been to several trials (although only as spectators).  I think maybe they need to add this event to them!

I'm upset about it because it's the weekend my girlfriend and I decided to go to Madison, WI to visit some friends.  My main plan for the trip was to go out, drink good beer and eat good food.  Then I realized it was St. Pat's weekend and I thought, "Damn it all! Every bar will be swarming with "Kiss me I'm Irish" tshirt wearing idiots who probably aren't even Irish in the least!"  Oh well, I'll make do and it'll still be a fun weekend.  No Irish in me hence the not celebrating St. Patrick's Day thing I got going on.  Don't really celebrate holidays that don't apply to me or my heritage.
