I never got my towel, so I feel they owe me a trip. Is there a number I can call to claim the prize?
 
2009-04-11 03:47:41 PM

2009-04-11 03:47:43 PM

I might be a flaming idiot, but when I tried to register California wasn't an option.

You're not alone.
Weird, because they even have DC listed, but no Ca.

Rusty McSukit That's why I send these things 2 my grandma's house in Tucson. I go every 6 months & pick up barglasses & other weird cocktail ephemera.

Sweet lord. What a farking nightmare of a site. Did they test it on humans?
 
2009-04-11 03:56:23 PM
I got a fridge magnet instead.

I have the Guinness harp tattooed on my hip. I should win.

No matter, on my 30th birthday next year, I will be standing at St. James Gate in furry boots, a furry hat and a Guinness bikini getting my picture taken.

You know who else never got a towel?

Abraham Lincoln, who said, "A house divided ... is a condominium." Never got a towel!

George Washington, who said to his father, "Dad, if I never tell I lie, how am I ever gonna become President?" Never got a towel!

Cain, whose wife divorced him because he wasn't Able. Never got a towel!

Ben Hur, who said to his sister Ben Him, "We'd better swap names before they start calling me Ben Gay!" Never got a towel!

Pliny the Elder, who when Rome was burning requested Nero to play "You Picked a Fine Time to Leave Me, Lucille." Never got a towel!

Goliath's mother, who said to Goliath, "Stop running around with David! You're always coming home stoned!" Never got a towel!

Steigen: Weird, because they even have DC listed, but no Ca.

I'm not sure why, but I read the terms and conditions of the contest, it says something about the contest not being legal in CA.

Chulainn: contest not being legal in CA.

"4. Eligibility: This Sweepstakes is open only to residents of the United States who are 21 years of age at the time of entry except California and wherever else prohibited or restricted by law."

Now with Citation!

I was already hopefully picturing that image as being somewhat cold, with the bikini and the natural thermometers and such.

/maybe the fur will keep you warm enough...

Got mine. The black ran a bit when it got wet. Afraid to wash it. Not really absorbent enough for a decent bar towel.
 
2009-04-11 05:06:53 PM
what bar towels?
 
2009-04-11 05:10:59 PM
I got mine.
 
2009-04-11 05:11:03 PM
Never got mine
 
2009-04-11 05:12:48 PM
What if I disown California? Then can I enter? :(

I haven't used mine for anything yet, and it does seem like it wouldn't be absorbent enough to do any real good.

Just wash it by itself once and it'll be fine for all future washes.

/got his towel nearly immediately, years and years ago.

that's because California has raised the tax on a free trip to 309.25 percent.
 
2009-04-11 05:51:42 PM
Never got mine, tried twice over the past 5 years. But I do have a sweet Guinness Draft neon sign next to my pool table, a nice set of Guinness pint glasses, and about 35 Guinness stouts in my basement fridge.
 
2009-04-11 05:54:21 PM
....still waiting for my towel
 
2009-04-11 05:57:09 PM
49 states and DC, but no California?

that's racist

somehow.
 
2009-04-11 05:59:17 PM
FTF rules...

VOID IN CALIFORNIA AND WHEREVER ELSE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW.

so f*cking lame
 
2009-04-11 06:17:49 PM
I have to login to a site that I can't drink. Nice.
 
2009-04-11 06:18:58 PM
Never got my farkin' towel either. Christ, you'd think they'd give me my own wing at the factory with the way I spend money on that crap.
 
2009-04-11 06:25:37 PM
Wow...

Subby here.. It took 2 years to get mine. Was wondering how many Farkers would even remember the bar towel thing, much less finally give me another greenlight.

/Touring the brewery in June.
 
2009-04-11 06:26:07 PM
I got two.

The Duke got his bar towel

Thought someone would have beaten me to it.


/off my lawn, etc.
 
2009-04-11 07:39:00 PM
Never got mine, but I do recall getting a postcard saying that there was high demand and they ran out of towels - but not to fear as it was still coming! Then I moved. Bummer.
 
2009-04-11 07:42:06 PM
Subby is bitter and wishes he could cling to a Guinness bar towel.

/I loved her.
