yep. Dying of covid with no sense of taste and smell is about the only way you can enjoy a pint of Guinness.

By the time I got mine, I had a laugh because I had forgotten about.

Meanwhile, nurses in Chicago made sure that a dying man was taken into a backroom and beaten about the torso with shoes and phone books one last time.

Mrs. Doubtfire: He was quite fond of the drink. It was the drink that killed him.

Miranda: How awful. He was an alcoholic?

Mrs. Doubtfire: No, he was hit by a Guinness truck. So it was quite literally the drink that killed him.

Reminds me of the joke about the brewery worker who drowned in a vat of Guinness.

"Did he suffer much?"
"No, dear.  He got out three times to relieve himself. "

When the Mirror could run another stereotype story.

Still waiting for mine. Fark used to links to free stuff back when I started. Those .com bubble years, seems like every other start up was giving something away to gain traffic. For Fark it was boobies pic links scattered throughout the day.

Intravenously?

This.

If they're dying they're on a ventilator.  Drinking a pint of Guinness is a big ask.

He said commuting in for a shift he often sees people walking around as if the pandemic wasn't happening, adding: "It's like two different worlds."

Basically, this is what it's like for everyone who works in a hospital. It doesn't really bother me anymore... we've been in a bad state for months where I am. I just look out the window at the obese, maskless hoards and think to myself... they're going to end up in the refrigerated truck out on the loading docks.

And guess what? They do!

Some days that would seem like a fair and even trade.

If they are stopping treatment, they may have removed them from the ventilator to move it to someone it may help.  Then providing the Guinness induces death as that thick liquid chokes the last bit of life out of him.
