Running out of beer is a crime against humanity! JESUS you may have to drink Fosters or similar…we are talking armageddon here peeps….
I worked with a team who bought lottery tickets as a group. Several would pray that god would subvert the laws of probability and hand them the win. I pointed out that if it worked it would be unfair to the other hopefuls who accepted the laws of chance. Anyway Jezuz didn’t deliver a miracle and they never won. This never shook their belief or their attempts to distort the gamble. It never undermined their enthusiasm for the magic of prayer. I assume that if they had won they’d be lighting candles of thanks to their deity. Or butchering a fatted calf—or maybe me for being wrong about God’s love.
I well understand this. My local inn can’t get Belhaven 90/- any more!
as the son of a sometime publican……..wonderful…. simply wonderful….

Thanks, Author, for another wonderfully satirical strip. (From an enthusiastic drinker of beer, whisky, wine, coffee, tee, etc!)
Thank God for people like Author!
Why does Jesus not just turn water into wine? Or would it just instantly turn into his blood?
I thought Jesus changed water into wine. Any UK law prohibiting him from changing water into good beer? Deeds, not words; thats better than praying.
Shaughn – my thought was that carbonation is beyond him. Like chariots of iron.
Maybe the barmaid was prepping for 31 Jan when easy access to European markets ends.
Vaugn McCue, that’s the saddest song I’ve ever heard.
So the barmaid is now the publican? Tell her congratulations from me!
Not being a beer drinker myself, a pub wit no beer wouldn’t bother me at all. A bar with no Bell’s on the other hand, is an abomination in the eyes of the lord. Sadly, I’ve sat at a few of them.
Where do they get their money, anyway?
I too like a nice single malt…I also like smooth Irish whiskey. I have a two litre bottle of Jamesons black label. I will open it and sample it when my grandson is 18…I have 15 years to wait…
M27: Jameson’s is a very nice Irish malt whiskey, but Bell’s is a blend (ie malt whisky plus grain whisky), not a single malt. BTW Bushmills is another fine whiskey, from Northern Ireland, the distillery is near the Giant’s Causeway.
DH: If you can’t find Bell’s, you may be able to get The Famous Grouse instead (IMNVHO, the Grouse is s superior blend to the Bell’s!).
As long as they have tequila, I’ll be happy 🙂
Hume said to reject the greater miracle. These two dips couldn’t reject anything which even remotely resembled a miracle to them if their lives depended on it!
I like Bell’s too. Steve Bell, that is, cartoonist for the Guardian.
Haha…last day of dry January, can have a few scoops tomorrow….Cheers, Skol etc….
Time for a little Housman, from “A Shropshire Lad”:
And malt does more than Milton can
To justify God’s ways to man.
Ale, man, ale’s the stuff to drink
For fellows whom it hurts to think:
Look into the pewter pot
To see the world as the world’s not.
“If anyone thinks that I amn’t divine
He’ll get no free drinks when I’m making the wine
But have to drink water and wish it were plain
That I make when the wine becomes water again.”
James Joyce, Ulysses
