Irish Beer: I'll Drink to That

At a world brewing convention in the States, the CEOs of various brewing organizations retired to the bar at the end of the first day's conference.

Bruce, CEO of Fosters, shouted to the Barman: "In 'Strylya, we make the best bloody beer in the world, so pour me a bloody Fosters, mate."

Bob, CEO of Budweiser, calls out next: "In the States, we brew the finest beers of the world, and I make the king of them all, gimme a Bud."

Hans steps up next: "In Germany ve invented das beer, ferdamt. Give me ein Becks, ya ist der real King of beers, danke."

Paddy, CEO of Guinness, steps forward: "Barman, would ya give me a diet coke with ice and lemon? Tanks."

The others stare at him in stunned silence, amazement written all over their faces.

Eventually Bruce asks: "Are you not going to have a Guinness, Pat?"

Paddy replies "Well, if you fookin' sissies aren't drinkin', then neither am I!"

Nothing like the Irish, gotta love 'em!

Reminds me of why little old Irish laddies go to viewings before funerals, just to make sure the person is really dead!
