When I was a kid asking my mam and dad what I was going to get for chrimmie, I was usually told, "a new arse because your old one stinks," though to be fair to my mam, she'd usually say "a new bottom..." because saying arse was always considered to be "dead common" grin

Now I'm all grown up and a proper communist an all, I'd like Father Christmas to bring me an ICC colony so I could while away the hours watching it and occasionally poking it with sticks wink

Asking for a load of Troegs Mad Elf (not the best Belgian Strong Dark Ale, but they're my favorite style and it's still really good and certainly the cheapest!), some cash money, and full communism.

Wear two and lose the other one the first time I wash it.

GOD I MISS PITCHERS OF BEER!

Socks are, in fact, on my Xmas list. I'm a picky bastards when it comes to the socks.

EDIT: Cooked, how's this?

Doesn't your beer go flat quicker in one of them jugs unless you're knocking them back rapido? Pint glass is fine for me. Half is bobbins and the quart jug just makes you look like a right greedy twat or a boozy get... burp...

Edit: Just remembered, a US pint is a fair bit smaller than a GB pint, so maybe not so greedy after all. Go home yankee imperialist lackeys and running dogs with your inferior pint measures angry Oh wait, that last bit should have been in the Rojava thread.

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There's just one thing I need
I don't care about the reforms
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want full communism
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is full communism

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There's just one thing I need
I don't care about the reforms
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don't need to cast my vote
There into the ballot box
My boss won't make me happy
With pay rise on Christmas day

Doesn't rhyme but fuck it, it's avant-garde.

I wan't one with texture, preferably ridges. I could accept the plain standard type like so

That feel when you wrote in a letter to Santa that you want communism and mom bought you nationalisation or self-management.

Going back to the OP, no one should ever by books or DVDs nowadays: just get an e-reader as a joint gift (or second-hand) and then they can torrent all the books they want!

E-readers are the work of Satan angry

And yes I have got a kindle.

Pitcher of beer... I still don't get it. What's the point? Can some random passing American please enlighten me as to how it improves the whole beer drinking experience and maybe give me suffcient reason to trek up to Nottingham IKEA and get one.

I'm not optimistic though, given that a popular US beer is Coors and that erzats Budweiser, also known as piss. In fact, when Budweiser sponsored the FA cup, the actual slogan was 'the FA cup sponsored by piss' I kid you not. Any road, I digress... what's the deal with pitchers?

Random passing non-American living in Canada here and I can vouch for the goodliness of pitchers of beer. It's cheaper to buy by the pitcher and it adds to the general conviviality of sharing with your friends. On the other hand, if your idea of a good night out is nursing a pint all night, it's probably best avoided.
However, a pitcher of American beer, or indeed any quantity of American beer, is an abomination and is nothing less than an insult to the grain from which it was extracted.

Pitchers are awesome.

What can I say, beer drinking is a just a more collective experience in America. A big fuck-off pizza and two pitchers of beer and you and two friends are full and cheery without the hassle of waiting 10 minutes only to carry a handful of pint glasses back to the table.

Also, American beer is, if not the best, certainly the most innovative in the world. Laugh - and I know you will - but I've made many an Englishman eat their words - nay, drink their words - when it comes to US beer.

am I allowed to disagree? ... and isn't American beer an extension of the Bavarian-Bohemian brewing tradition?
