    "In these dark days, you have to savor every pint of Guinness like it was your last,"said an Irish painter.

    I guess the workers for Guinness in Ireland are pissed because the company is shutting a plant down elswhere in the country, so they decided to strike to support their fellow beer workers. Guinness spokesman said if this last more than a week it could cost the Guinness company 18 million dollars a week. He also said the strikers might be out of a job soon if they don't get back to work.

    Damn!!! I hope this doesn't end up effecting Guinness production here in the U.S.A. That would suck!

    "I couldn't stand straight on my ladder without this pint right here," said the same painter. A true lover of a fine adult beverage, if I ever saw(or heard) one!

    What's wrong? Nobody out there care about the plight our Irish brothers and sisters must endure?

    Wow, that stinks. Any interruption of the production of Guinness is a loss for the world.

    But, if there's got to be a strike, hopefully the beer workers either prevail over there...

    Dude, Guiness rules! Well, at least St. Patty's day passed without a hitch.

    that does suck. it's imperative that the workers get back to work soon. too long without guiness can result in many different side effects, like being forced to drink budweiser, or more commonly called, "bottled piss". [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Yeah, Bud isn't my pick of the litter either. One of the few non-oriental made brews with rice in it. But you're Canadian aren't you? Shit man, you got plenty of good beer up there. Molson is one of my faves (especially the ICE).

    However, I've been around the world, have consumed many types of beers, and for the life of me I just can't get to the point where I can say I enjoy Guinness. Not to knock those of you who do like it - my hat's off to you.

    I'm a lager and pilsner fan myself, particularly when they're served in huge steins by young ladies with huge partly-bare breasts. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
