Thought you’d want to know.

Update: Also to avoid:

    How about arguing about the proper construction of a Martini?

    That’ll bring ’em out of the woodwork.

  2. SayUncle says:

    And that tequila sucks.

  3. Rob K says:

    Yeah, don’t do any of those things unless you want to drive traffic to your site. 🙂

    Cheap tequila sucks. A good one, like Don Julio, makes fine sipping when you’ve run out of whiskey. There’s no good vodka. And wine mostly smells like baby vomit.

    And BBQ.

    That’s because you Tennessee boys don’t know how to make it. Memphis style is OK, but if I wanted to drink Worcestershire sauce, I wouldn’t squirt on my pulled pork first.

    And how is it that you are going to join the Republic of Texas, as mentioned in the previous post, if you don’t like BBQ? We have lots of beef and there’s only three ways to prepare it: slightly warmed and bleeding all over you plate; chili (con carne); and dry rubbed and smoked for 8-14 hours for the ribs and tough parts and then smothered in sweet, hot BBQ sauce. (OK, OK, you can make fajitas, but only with the skirt steak and fajitas never clucked or oinked.)

    Fox new is reporting that the Pope will be giving his New Year address from the PK (Pope Kitchen) and he will be giving his secret chili recipe.
    It is being sponsored by Buddy’s Bar-B-Que and Jose Cuervo.

  7. Rustmeister says:

    Ya know what’s strange about Tequila?

    when Cuervo started making its “Gold”, it was considered better than the clear stuff, and cost more.

    Now, “Gold” is the crappy stuff and the clear stuff costs more.

    Almost like it was a marketing gimmick or something….

    So making chili with the Pope while drinking a martini made with tequila would make the universe explode…

  9. JD says:

    Jay G I would pay to see that. . .

    Don’t forget the ‘Atheists in foxholes’ stuff.
    (I think I linked to Rachel’s experience with that.)

    Nothing wrong with tequila; I like it because it doesn’t give me a hangover, no matter how much I drink. And the only thing you need for a decent tequila (none of that Jose Cuervo pisswater) is a shot of lime or a cold beer for a chaser.
    The stuff I refuse to drink is gin; the only way it would be fit to drink is if you had a kerosene chaser. Juniper berries are for marinades, not for drinking.

    Hey would you mind posting a definitive statement on whether full length guide rods on 1911’s are beneficial or not? The answer to that has to be so obvious that I can’t imagine anyone coming out of the woodwork to disagree with it…

  13. Mikee says:

    Gin is for getting genteelly tipsy. Vodka is for drowning sorrows. Tequila is a motivator for arson.

    The pope, drunk on altar wine, demanding a vinegar/pepper sauce on his pulled pork sandwich, while hosting lunch for an Ayatollah – now that could get interesting.

    What else should one blog on other than things that generate controversy? It isn’t like you:

    Disparaged everyone’s favorite firearms and/or cartridges….
    Or made fun of their mothers….
    Or called their babies ugly….
    Or laughed at their choice of cars….

    Or pointed to any of the thousands of other differences we hold up for inspection and ridicule on a regular basis on blogs and in everyday life….

    Thanks for the fun reading in 2008. Now that Kim is retired, I’m looking for your blog (and links) to step it up a notch to fill the void….
