Cool, I guess if you don't say f|i|r|s|t post then you actually get the Boobies. But really, this is so sad...

This ruling also allows for beer to be bought from smaller breweries as well out-of-state... w00t.

Uh, it's always been this way. Also, how were the Boobies? firm and supple? or droopy and saggy.

That law was enacted in part to stem a rising tide of Internet wine orders that, it was argued, avoided state alcoholic beverage taxes and could put booze in the hands of minors.

That's what everyone says nowadays when they're losing an argument. It always deteriorates into a "what about the children?" debate. Apparently calling someone a communist just doesn't have the effect it used to.

When I went to college in SW VA, a lot of dorks would drive to West Virginia to smuggle in Everclear (that high of a proof is illegal in VA) Why they bothered to do it, I dont know, considering Everclear is shiate.

I love it when musty old strongholds lose their grip.

Virginia Tech?

No worry, there are boobies that have been accepted. When they appear is another matter.

Ouroborus, I went to Radford. There, I've said it. Now I can go hang my head in shame now.
2002-03-31 01:45:11 AM  
GB: Since I know nothing about Radford I can't make any rash value judgements about it or its alumni. Now VT on the other hand...
2002-03-31 10:23:14 AM  
About time. I live in SW VA and beers have to be shipped to me in W VA. What a bite!

Greenbeetle: Radford is a good school; have no shame.

Ouroborus: My ex and her lovely sister, affectionately known as 'The Biatch from Hell', are VT grads. Anything bad you can say about VT is probably true.

The whole concept of going to West Virginia for anything you can't get in your home state is funny. Can you imagine a W.V. drive through? Backed up with Muddy pick-ups blaring blugrass, tractors and the occasional lawn mower.....
2002-03-31 11:22:56 AM  
Yeah, but transporting moonshine across the VA State line is still OK.

Yee-Haw !!!!!!

ThirstyDog People would drive over to W VA for the strippers, too. There was one club near the border called "Southern Exposure" that was popular because it was more skank than the VA strip clubs.

Wow, my first article post! Now I know how to get something posted...have it involve alcohol and heroes!
2002-03-31 01:24:20 PM  
Just pass me the bong...
2002-03-31 02:06:30 PM  
Wow, corn fed, in-bred strippers. Where's my road wonder they need moonshine....
