    Bush 43 chewed up a surplus left to him by Bubba and left the economy in a grand canyon eight years later. Dems clean up messes and GOPs leave us elephant poo. Ask Sewretch, he knows about elephant poo.:p:D

    Mayor Willie Brown of San Francisco once poured a bottle of Bushmills down a drain in protest of its hiring record.

    Sixty years? This is just bragging for the sake of bragging. Come to think about it, I I wouldn't mind a glass of sake.

    There's also that Yamazaki 50-year old single malt. Mac's 60-year old is probably too expensive but sure there are takers.

    I've been on the whisky diet - I've already lost three days!

    Today is the 53rd anniversary of the opening of the famous Whisky a Go Go nightclub on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. It would have been great to be in the audience a few years later to see The Doors perform, especially to hear "The Alabama Song"..."Show me the way to the next whiskey bar..."

    The Doors are well before my days, but I drank whiskey there many times in the 1990s.

    ABU Garcia is a Swedish manufacturer of fishing rods and reels distributed throughout the world. The "ABU" portion of the name reflects the original Swedish manufacturer AB Urfabricken, who started by making watches and taxi meters but branched into fishing reels and then rods in the 1940s. An American distributor, Garcia, picked up the line and expanded their market to the entire world after World War 2.

    ABBA was a somewhat comically innocuous Swedish band. The two guys in the background of this video look seriously stoned.

    Pro golfer Jesper Parnevik is the son of comical Swedish entertainer Bosse Parnevik, known for his uncanny mimicking skills. Jesper was known on the PGA tour as a comical player, always entertaining the crowd with "yokes" and tricks. He also introduced good friend Tiger Woods to the beautiful young nanny for the Parnevik children, Elin Nordegren. I wonder if Elin thanks or curses Jesper every day.

    Elin seems like a typically mild-mannered Swede, so Tiger must have really done a lot for her to go after him and his car with a golf club.

    Cheating on her with a Perkins hostess deserves a gap wedge to the cranium...I mean their pie is good but Elin is a princesstarta of the highest order.

    Two out of every three restaurant lemon wedges tested in a study were covered in disease-causing bacteria -- including fecal bacteria. A total of 25 different, and potentially dangerous, microorganisms were discovered on the wedges.
    --Dr. Mercola

    Now, Would you still be inclined to squeeze the lemon wedge lodge it inside of your Coruna bottle?

    Coronas with lime wedges are bad enough but lemon enhanced bottled Mexican urine is going way too far.:eek:

    Dos Equis Amber or Modelo Negra, por favor.

    I remember a bottle of Corona with a wedge of lime on top was popular in California dating back to my freshman year in college, when I was officially too young to be drinking. It was a very cheap beer that people would buy in cases for less than American cheap beers.

    Consequently, I was very surprised in Copenhagen bars to see people paying premium prices for this beer with a wedge of lime, which was trendy during my early trips to Denmark. Quality Danish beers were cheaper, but it seems taste succumbed to marketing. Something was rotten in Danish beer selection at some bars at the time.

    The Ghost of King Hamlet addresses his son, Prince Hamlet, warning the youth, "The serpent that did sting thy Father's life now wears the crown (corona)". Something indeed was rotten in the state of Denmark, much more than a forgotten piece of Havarti in Mike B's Fischer bag.

    76-year-old Margrethe II celebrated her 45th anniversary as holder of the Danish crown this past Sunday. She is a popular monarch, receiving upwards of 90% approval ratings from Danish citizens.

    I think the Danish royals are popular for maintaining an egalitarian perception. The Queen use to be known for riding her bike in Copenhagen. I once met Prince Frederik in a Copenhagen hard rock dive bar in Copenhagen, and he couldn't have been nicer. By the way, he is not related to King Federer.

    Was the prince there for a Right Said Fred performance that featured their hit song "I'm Too Sexy", dedicated to the Swiss royalty of the tennis court???

    He liked Metallica, which was popular in Denmark at the time. Also, the Danish royals were given a lot of freedom, and lived in a very different environment than the English royals. Personally, I view the concept of royal families as ludicrous, but think the Danes handled it well.

    A teenage son of a Danish tennis pro moved to Los Angeles and discovered the drums, thus changing the music world more profoundly than his tennis game would ever had done. Now Danish royalty appreciates the sounds of his band, Metallica. One must wonder if he would remain part of the unforgiven if the Sandman had not entered but now nothing else matters.

    Metallica's Lars Ulrich is reported to be worth a massive USD175 million.
