Come to Belgium – they do great beer

My previous post does seem a little serious, so I thought I’d lighten up a little by sharing this advertisement with you. And in case anyone is thinking of visiting Europe in the near future, this is what they think might be deemed `fun`.

N.B. I’m British, I’m NOT European! (We still have the £ and The English Channel and I think the tunnel may even have pre-positioned charges, just in case we feel the need to make a point ;)

    The motorcyclist should have had a bigger role. The football* team was a nice touch.

    *American term for for a team sport where the ball rarely touches a player’s actual foot.

    Now THAT was just pretty danged cool.

    The Belgians DO make great beer. As a s’matter o’ fact, there’s some in my fridge right now.

    That was funny! Bet Lex would have come up with some exceptionally witty introduction, but it is still a great bit!

  6. Bud is now a Belgian Beer. Some German Sailors I treated back in ’74 thought it was pretty sorry stuff. Just like Belgians, they might have said.

    And we all know that Belgians are Malingerers*.

    *see English Translation of Le Boudin.

    Ah, les Belges, je fais comme eux, pour la plupart.

    Just to show how cosmopolitan I can be.

    Prefer German beer myself, though I have had Belgian beer on occasion.

    QM – very nice, “Le Boudin”. For those who are unaware, check this out:

    Vive la Légion!

  8. Hmmm, a couple of things. First, got the coordinates to that square? I’d love to push that button. Ask my boss, he tells me I push his buttons all the time. Second.

    Vive le mort, vive le guerre, vive le sacre Legionaire.

    Not really a big Belgian beer fan though.

    The Belgian, Trappist monks of the St. Sixtus Monastary make the Westvleteren 8% beer, sold only at their monastary and on the grey market. When I tasted it I heard angels sing. True story. Beer. Angels. Singing.

      Daryle, they weren’t Trappist monks, they were just passing tourists who decided they needed an excuse to stay – you have been warned;)

  10. Well, they did add drama! Thanks Hogday, that was great.
