Priests and their beer ...


 

I came across the image on the left, and it reminded me of another photograph I had seen, which I have added above.

The difference between myself and the good Cardinal, now Pope, is obviously explained by the fullness (or not) of the glass.

Yes maybe Father,but he's got twice as much as you,by the looks of the size of his glass. Mind you,the Germans do tend to drink beer in larger vessels,from what I remember from the beer kellers.Oh no,now I am going to be singing those songs all day,in my head(you know,the ones that you sing whilst tapping your knees and waving drinks to the left,to the right,stand up,sit down........)!

Reminds me of the old Country & Western song "I like beer" by Tom T Hall

(chorus)
I like beer. it makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer. It helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow (makes him feel mellow)
Whiskeys too rough, champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear.
This little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact I like beer
(he likes beer).

Now, I wonder why the photos stop above the waist line - well above the waist line .....
