    Default Literary review of the week

    I just noticed this review, one of the longest and most literary I've seen.

    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    I expected to see it signed " Bill Bryson " or perhaps our own Millay but I don't think he is a Yank.

    I'm am sure I have seen that before, I can't work out where though, maybe it was previously sent to us through feedback.

    I'll ask Dave when I catch up with him, hopefully he will remember.

    Thought it read more like an American Les Dawson.

    Ok, just done my homework, Edward joined 2 years ago to the day and sent us this as feedback on the same day.

    I replied that it was probably meant as a review not feedback but apologised that it was too long to be submitted at the time, but that we hoped to allow longer reviews in the future. Some dedication there though to check back 2 years on.

    Not guilty M'lud, but it's a story I'd be proud of.
    I've just joined Alcoholics Anonymous - I still drink, just under a different name.
