It won't be the Year of the Green Rooster for a few weeks yet.

"And the last advice: you should say "cock-a-doodle-doo" several times for luck."

"Cluckcluckcluck - That's right, kids! Say it for luck, or I'll come to your house in the middle of the night and peck out your soul! Cock-a-doodle-doo!"

Wasn't that an Alice in Chains song?

I know it was the name of an imported beer and it was really potent. Long ago I'd buy a six pack of Green Rooster and get bombed. I haven't seen it in ages.

Here's some info:

Beer Lovers Rating Guide - 2nd Edition 11311
THE BEER LOVER'S RATING GUIDE by Bob Klein; Illustrated by David Cain

"It's the beer lovers Michelin. Bob Klein's drinker-friendly guide rates over 1,200 American and imported beers on a scale of 0 to 5, from the deeply roasted, thoroughly creamy, tantalizingly bitter Rogue Shakespeare Stout (Newport, Oregon, 4.8) to the soapy, sticky, unpleasant Green Rooster (Copenhagen, Denmark 0.0--and it really is green).

Funny. I remember it being pretty good, not green and from some Pacific Rim country. But after so many years drinking who knows what I remember anymore.

Even if you aren't alergic to seafood you might want to go easy on the jellyfish salad the first time.

I don't think I would want to celebrate any year that involves a green cock. Sounds like a bad infection.

Year of the Green Wood Cock? Niiiice......

If you have a green wood cock you might want to see a doctor.

Beat me to it.

Green wood rooster

What should one wear/cook for the New Year?
Why rooster of course.

The astrologer suggests cooking beans and oats among other dishes as well as sprinkling the table with some seeds.

Comedy GOLD I tell you!

/when was the last time anyone in america cooked beans and oats?

I liked The Year of the Fruitbat better.

The year of the Green Rooster: tips for a successful celebration

What's the difference between what a rooster says and what a prostitute says?

Oh, rooster=cock. I get it. Very clever.

Dumb Russkis... It's the year of the Timber Rooster, so it would be the Brown, or shiat Rooster. It would only be Green Rooster if we're talking 2029.

Quick elemental Chinese astrology lesson:

If the year ends in a certain number, the color and element follow below.

0, 1 = Silver/Metal
2, 3 = Blue/Water
4, 5 = Brown/Wood
6, 7 = Red(or Golden)/Fire
8, 9 = Green/Earth

Someone slap the writer upside the head.

A good year for wood and cock. Whatdya know?
2004-12-30 05:56:40 PM  
Anyone have a link with Chinese astrology info?

"Everyone is probably aware of the fact that green is the color of hope and spring."

Actually, green is the color of the left-over Thanksgiving turkey I have been saving in my refrigerator to give for Christmas as a "chia pet."

/Stole that from Jay Leno.

Can't recall the last time I got a "pacific rim"...
2004-12-30 06:47:35 PM  
It's interesting when people find out what year they were born in with the color and metal. When I told my mom she was a Red Fire Pig...I mean, cripes, it sounds like a flaming flatulant hog. She didn't seem too thrilled.
2004-12-30 07:24:30 PM  
Golden tiger of fire is pretty nice, though. Tyger tyger burning bright? yes.
2004-12-30 07:25:10 PM  
My tip for the year of the Green Rooster: Clean it more often and stop going to dirty prostitutes. If you don't take care of your rooster, it may never crow at dawn again.

Chinese New Year is Feb. 9 in 2005. Those of you with January/February birthdays, bear this in mind when you look at your Chinese restaurant placemat -- your animal sign may not be what you have thought it was for all these years!

/it's a lunar thing

Nice try, DodgerOfZion, but no.

Nice try, Veneficus, but no.

I've been studying this shiat for years, and I live by it.

And another thing to remember: Don't trust a website with as much of an eyesore of a layout as that one.

Nice try, DogerofZion, but no.

Um.. just felt like saying that.
