The Guinness does not taste different

It's pissing rain, so I am killing time in an Internet cafe.

You know how every American insists that the Guinness tastes different in Ireland than it does in the U.S.?

Lies.

That's not to say I'm not drinking a lot of it, though.

I want to thank you for exposing that to the world.

I think people just say that so they can lord it over you that they've gone to Ireland and are so very special.

Do they serve it at room temperature? (You might be able to tell that I've left the U.S. only once. hehe)

Well, how about the head? Is it higher? Lower? How much? And so on...

(Where is Ireland?)

Are they drizzling a little shamrock in the head? I dig that.

I just realized how potentially funny that sounds.

This is something the Irish Tourist Board doesn't tell you.

It's called the Emerald Isle because it pisses down all the time and emerald is the colour of piss.

Fact.

I'm jealous. There I said it. Humpf!

Oh really? So it takes like 10w-30 Valvoline over there, too?

I also am jealous, although less jealous than I would have been had you not debunked the Guinness myth.

Sure it tastes different, it's the water from the Liffey that makes all the difference.

It's all the shopping carts and contaminated shell fish you see.

What does your umbrella look like, Chris?
