In an attempt to swell the ranks of God fearing, beer
swilling, football watching, church skipping Englishmen,
the CoE (Church of England) has purchased a pub in Northern
England - The Cock and Bottlesnicker, snicker.
I find this a bit disturbing and think that not only should there be a
separation of Church and State, but of Church and alcohol. I don't trust them
bible thumpers when it comes to my favorite drug. They probably water it down
with holy water or something. Maybe they even bless the wine in a box. Ugh.
Still I'd have to be awful drunk to fall for that whole "convert me when I am
drunk" routine. Drunk to the point of driving the Porcelain Bus - if
you know what I mean. "Yes God - I'll go to church next Sunday if only you'll
help me make it through the night."
