BEER OR VODKA WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?….aa seeks clarity

Good Morning Crapulous Ones,

Cultural Diversity

The convenient Russian myth that “beer” (up to 10 percent alcohol by volume) is a “soft drink” will end shortly, following the enactment of restrictions signed by President Dmitry Medvedev in July. Beer had been rapidly replacing vodka as the country’s primary alcoholic beverage, as people drank it with impunity around the clock in public places (since they pretended they were consuming nothing more powerful than a “cola”). [The Independent (London), 7-21-2011]

I know that many of you consider beer a soft drink because you consume it as if it was your last opportunity.  In Denver there’ll be yet another opportunity to drink up at our ‘Oktober Fest’ held this weekend.  If you get a chance make sure you look for A.A., he’ll be the one muttering something about pampering himself.  That typically means he’ll be looking for the shoeshine boy.

    As they say the devil (I guess that would be the faggot-sexual  Roger) is always in the details. You know AA loves details and stuff happening according to plan.
    I hope that you grant AA the courtesy of meeting him downtown for what I think is his least offensive festival of all.
    If I could, I would join you all.
    God Bless,
    The Bagwan

    It appears AA will be doing things a bit differently this year.  He explained to me that he tires easily these days and has secured the services of Cush, Dv’ant, and Roger the hair dresser to hand off the glass ike a baton in a relay race, and then is to be shuttled to meet everyone at the last stop.  Sounds very sensible to me.

    In Denver Oktoberfest is on Larimer St. between 20th and 22nd. All of the booths, rides and festivities take place in the middle of Larimer St. I had the pleasure of accompanying AA to Oktoberfest one year and I will tell you he has his own personal way of taking in this event. You see this is in the ballpark district of Denver and those two blocks are lined with saloons. AA starts at one end and bar hops his way to the other. For him, all the booths and rides and polka playing bands simply represent an obstacle course. I will say that I have seen him buy a beer from a street vendor but only when he has a particularly long hop (100 yards) between bars.
