Happy St. Patrick’s Day! For you, my friends, a couple Irish toasts:
Here’s to cheating, stealing, fighting and drinking
If you cheat, may you cheat death
If you steal, may you steal a women’s heart
If you fight, may you fight for a brother
And if you drink, may you drink with me
Some may say the glass is half empty
Some may say the glass is half full
But the Irish will forever say
“Are you gonna drink that?”
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
This is another rerun, first posted in April 2009. A couple years ago, I was listening to The Irish and Celtic Music podcast and one song was by Sligo Rags called, “The Whiskey Never Lies.” Extremely awesome song. There is a kernel of truth to the song but I can think of a few times that whiskey lied to me. Beer hasn’t necessary lied but has told me a few fibs. Wine has been pretty noncommittal. So what is always truthful? What can I trust? Coffee. Coffee never lies…
My wife said this one day as we ate a particularly spicy mexican meal for dinner one night. This image immediately popped into my head. How could it not?
Of course coffee is not happy. You stay out all night. You don’t call. When you finally roll out of bed, you reek of cheap beer and are looking for attention.
Sixpoint Brewery, out of Brooklyn, NY, is having a fun little contest on their Facebook page. It’s called “Beer is Culture” and they are inviting people to draw what that means to them and post it to their Sixpoint Art and Design Exhibition FB album. The winner will have their submission be Sixpoint’s FB profile picture for the next year. There is some really good stuff there. A lot of talented folks. Beer is culture? Brilliant! I just had to draw something.
No where near as good as the others but I had fun with it. Enjoy.
Coffee really does not have a reason to be jealous. It’s not that beer is better, it’s just…different. They are both loved the same. Just at different times.
This one also kind of drew itself.
