Oh yeah I haven't had Guinness in a while. I should pick some up tomorrow for the games.
 
2014-06-17 12:43:34 PM  
I haven't been drinking much lately.

I might pick up a pack on the way home out of spite, because Bill Donahue is one of the biggest farking moralizing scumbag shiatheads in the country.
 
2014-06-17 12:52:41 PM  
Oh, they boycotted Guinness?  I'll buy some on the way home then.

Grand_Moff_Joseph: Oh, they boycotted Guinness?  I'll buy some on the way home then.


The Catholic League is not so much a "they" as it is a "he" and that "he" is Bill Donahue. I guess he might have enough members to fill a meeting in his basement by now.

The Catholic League just hasn't been the same since they went with the Designated Hitter.
 
2014-06-17 01:39:45 PM  
That must be some sort of Guiness record
 
2014-06-17 02:02:26 PM  
They were calling for a boycott? I wish I had known so I could have picked up a case.

For every Guinness you don't drink, I'll drink twelve.

Which group has more members, the Catholic League or the People's Popular Front of Judea?

2014-06-17 02:17:06 PM  
I need to get a list of the Catholic League's boycotts. I need a new shopping list.
 
2014-06-17 02:17:11 PM  
A pint of Guiness is sounding pretty good right now.  Will buy some on the way home.
 
2014-06-17 02:23:42 PM  
I'm doing my part.

/I had a pint on Saturday
 
2014-06-17 02:26:13 PM  
Are we talking real Guiness or that tasteless rip off they distribute here in the USA?
 
2014-06-17 02:28:46 PM  
I'm not going to go out of my way to get it just because these moralizing d-bags don't want me to, but I usually gravitate toward Guinness when I'm at the bar and they don't have a local brew I'd like to try (or retry).  But I will think of them the next time I get one, and toast to them.

Fine, I'll skip the Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout tonight.
 
2014-06-17 02:31:37 PM  
You mean purchase of Guinness went down compared to St. Patrick's day... a day that celebrates everything Irish and is usually accompanied by people drinking far more Guinness than they normally do? I'm shocked!
 
2014-06-17 02:31:39 PM  
Guiness is the most famous Protestant family in Dublin and the Republic. Getting boycotted by Bill Donohue's Catholic League must be the equivalent of Crimea being invaded by Russia, ravished by Mongol hoards, getting a C- in sex education, or owning last year's iPhone. Ouch..

THIS-a-THIS-aTHIS

someone ought to show him the annual sale charts for tinsel and tree lights after Dec. 24; he'd be shocked!
 
2014-06-17 02:37:23 PM  
Those were convincing statistics right there. I especially liked the complete lack of raw data, charts, or methodology.
 
2014-06-17 02:38:15 PM  
Wow, I didn't realize that there were only 103 bars in New York.
 
2014-06-17 02:39:40 PM  
The six pack of Guiness I was given for Father's Day this past Sunday came from a lapsed Catholic. I can't wait to tell him this. He will be proud.

FTFA: "I sold my stock in Diageo when I first heard the news"

Say you sold it a couple of days after St. Paddy's Day; stock price was GBP 17.90.
Today the stock price is GBP 18.89.  A 5.5% gain in three months.
Yeah, Guinness (Diageo) is really hurting.  That'll show 'em!  I'll sell my stock to investors that want to make money!

Mikey1969: Wow, I didn't realize that there were only 103 bars in New York.


The article says the survey was over "many cities," so it's worse than that. Plus they had thousands sign their petition. Thousands! What ever will Guinness do? They're truly sunk, now.
 
2014-06-17 02:40:54 PM  
We get it...Guinness is black.

And because mocking Donahue for being a whackjob is the same as mocking Catholicism.

A one-man boycott is really going to hurt their bottom line.

Me too, but when I'm in a different town I always have at least one Guinness Protestant Porter (the original name) and the Catholic League can suck it.

I seem to recall they got into a bit of trouble for exactly that.

I have some in the fridge right now. Will have to crack one open when I get home.

\the things I'm forced do for political activism...

The Catholic League barely represents Catholics. It doesn't have the power to put a dent in Guinness' bottom line.

IIRC, they pulled this same shiat a few months ago, didn't they? They found a few people who agreed with them, so it was a "rousing success", or some such shiat.

I think it's similar to the sound of a hastily scribbled letter of rage being force fed into a fax machine.

I doubt they have the power to put a dent in Guinness' delivery truck.

I like Stoutnik Imperial and Titanic.

Anderson Valley Ranch's Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout is pretty damned amazing beer, though. It is the beer I'd bring to a table of beer snobs. Also a good choice to introduce a spirit drinker to craft beer. Not cheap though.

I have a chocolate stout bubbling in my basement right now so will not be joining this boycot break.

I'm more of a Murphy's or Beamish drinker, but boycott Guinness?

Yeah, good luck with that, Fundies...
 
2014-06-17 03:46:37 PM  
I don't want to click, so...WHY are they (he) boycotting?
