First, You Swill a Wee Dram

The first taste affects all the members of the body,” a 1695 description of the elixir reads. “Two spoonfuls of this last liquor is a sufficient dose — if any man should exceed this, it would presently stop his breath, and endanger his life.”

…then you say the distillery name three times fast…


…before you fall into a coma, whilst the mourners around ye sing…

May the best ye’ve ever seen
Be the worst ye’ll ever see
May a moose ne’er leave yer girnal
Wi’ a tear drap in his e’e
May ye aye keep hale an’ he’rty
Till ye’re auld eneuch tae dee
May ye aye be jist as happy
As we wish ye aye tae be

When we can stand again, we offer the second dram as a Swill salute to our dear friend Beer Brains for alertin’ us to the danger.
UPDATE: Holy CRAP!! Maybe we can score some for free, since it’s a MacEwan at the helm, praise be ta Jesus!

What IS it with this family and alchohol?
