I’ve completed formatting all of the Yolkin cartoons to a common standard and have Photoshopped English texts in place of the original Russian. Can you believe that Yolkin takes up 2 percent of this site? Yowza! Click here to see Yolkin’s whole megillah (it’s a tag, not a link, so, its continually updated).
We should thank God for beer and burgundy by not drinking too much of them.
G K Chesterton
The barmen at one of the clubs in Knokke, a seaside resort town on Belgium’s North Sea coast, prepard the world’s largest “mojito” cocktail. To prepare the mojito, barmen used a Plexiglas cocktail glass two metres (6 feet 7 inches) in height, with a diameter of 1.6 metres (5 feet 3 inches), containing 2,011 litres (531 gallons) of happiness. An official from the Guinness Book of World Records certified the Belgian achievement. Prior to this, the record for the world’s largest mojito belonged to an Italian group, which concocted a cocktail containing 1,300 litres (344 gallons) of fun. All comers could sample the mojito for 5 Euros (206 Roubles. 6.50 USD. 4 UK Pounds) a glass. Afterwards, barmen poured the remainder left into bottles for sale in retail outlets around Knokke, the proceeds of which will be channelled to support young families in need.

How much you wanna bet that it was a sincerely-religious Catholic barman (or barmaid) who came up with the idea to sell off the remainder to aid the less fortunate? Christians have no problem with social drinking; all real Christians hold the point that it’s licit ad usque hilaritatem (to the point of hilarity). We’re not joyless Born Again sectarians… we’re not prunish Puritans. Beware all those who want to ape Radical Sectarians… they’re far from the Real Thing, and get farther away the closer they come to “Evangelicals”.
Pass the jug and cheer… now, THAT’S a point of unity…
