Pyrat, old English for pirate, cask 1623.
You can buy this on sale for about $180 and at 750ml that comes out to just shy of 17 shots which makes it $10.58 per shot and we won’t discuss what a shot of this stuff would cost in a bar. Where as Myers’s Rum Original Dark 80 750ml will cost you about $24 which works out to about $1.41 per shot.
Now I ask you , which makes more sense, pouring the cheap stuff into a mixer until you can’t stand up or sipping the expensive stuff because you’re too cheap to drink it like a man. Besides, cheap rum is like cheap Russian vodka after the second or third it smooths right out.
For the record I don’t like rum, especially dark rum. — Many moons ago I go so messed up on dark rum that I basically puked my way from Miami to DC and I haven’t been able to drink it straight since.
On the other hand if someone wants to send me a bottle of Havana Club Añejo Blanco I might be persuaded to take up drinking rum again.
I was clearing the excess files from my computer when I came across this old image of Bill and Hillary Clinton:
I want you to ask yourself; does he really look like the kind of guy who wouldn’t inhale?
I’m posting this for a guy who’s just been shipped off to someplace that has real winter. He says he’s up to his ass in snow so I thought I’d give him a glimmer of hope by reminding him that summer does exists.
Every 4th of July at least one otherwise well behaved child turns into their evil alter ego, the pool pest.
Unfortunately the pool pest seems to be as much a part of the pool water as chlorine. They’re like one of those damn flies that refuse to land, they just keep circling and circling and circling and driving you crazy.
This is how you deal with them:
First you corner them.
Then you find something large to swat them.
Then you swing for all you’re worth.
Then if you’re lucky you’ve rid the pool of the resident annoyance.
