Guinness seems to be in the air at the moment.
Unfortunately that’s a figure of speech so I won’t be setting out glasses in the hopes of capturing any condensation.
There is an advertisement on television at the moment and it completely baffles me. It starts off showing a few black fellas on horses and it helpfully informs me that this is somewhere in Downtown LA or some such. So we see these chaps farting around on their horses and not doing much else leaving me initially wondering what the fuck is going on. All is revealed at the end, when it transpires that this is an advertisement for Guinness.
Will someone please tell me the connection between a quintessentially Irish stout and a bunch of blokes of Negroid extraction farting around an American city on horseback? The only link I can think of is Black, which is deliciously non-PC. There again, seeing as apparently everyone and everything is deemed to be racist these days, then Guinness might as well be up front and honest about it?
The other thing that amuses me is a search thingy that keeps cropping up in my log files…
“What does Guinness taste like?“
What the fuck is that about? What do Oranges taste like? What do dog turds taste like? If you want to find out then go and fucking taste some.
Of course the modern generation have to rely on the Interwebs for absolutely everything. I swear they search for “how do I tie shoe laces” each morning, followed by “how do I eat breakfast”. In fact garnering information on shoe laces is a lot more logical that asking about taste. How the fuck do you describe taste on a computer screen? The only way I can think of is in reference to other tastes, but then the Idiots would have to go searching to find what the reference tastes like [“it tastes like Guinness”??]. How do you describe the colour red to a blind person? You can’t without reference to something else visual, which under the circumstances would be somewhat pointless?
Now that I have that lot off my chest, I might stroll down to the village for a pint.
But first I had better search the Interwebs to find out what I should order?
