A rare accolade

Wow, apparently I’ve been awarded the title of The Worst Person on Beer Twitter. I’m so flattered my head will scarcely fit through the door.

Maybe I should commission a special badge – a pubcat devouring a twild human infant, flanked by foaming pints of Boring Brown Bitter, and surmounted by crossed cigarettes.

      Actually the Holy Trinity of Twatdom.

      More on Twatdom.
      The Class Bar awards 2017 were announced today ( no,I've never heard of them either.) with categories for Bar of the Year,Hotel Bar of the Year,Bartedner of the Year etc etc.
      Every single one of these UK-wide awards was won by either a bar or a person in London.
      Now I lived and work in London for decades but still - twats.

    Hold on-have i understood this aright? He has named and shamed you on Twatter , not for your demanding every beer glass be engraved with a portrait of Jimmy Savile nor for your life's goal of giving all the leetle cheeldrens lung CANCER while they enjoy their carrot stix dipped in manuka honey at their local gastro-pub, but because you suggest a return to Imperial?!?!

    1. I suspect that, as a rare political conservative in the world of Beer Twitter, he already has a long list of my other transgressions against political correctness.

      NB I ,for one, will FIGHT TO THE DEATH to preserve our ancient , traditional British measurements! I demand the right to be allowed to use 'Yay big' and 'near enough for government work' along with 'a lot' and 'f**king loads'

    3. The "shedload" really demands formal definition...

    4. The Blocked Dwarf22 February 2017 at 15:23

      No it doesn't. What is difficult to understand? 'Shedload' means the space required to store two lawnmowers, one broken and one with insulating tape around the cord. A hedge trimmer, at least 3 empty paint tins,some jam jars with paintbrushes in where the brush cleaner has solidified after a decade or two of your meaning to get round to paint the spare room, the box the tv came in filled with all the home brew gear you can't risk parting with, granddad's worm eaten toolbox, several broken green plastic seed trays, that thing you found at the car boot 10 years ago you keep meaning to google, a rusty trowel and griddle, and the Barby with half a bag of Jack Daniels charcoal.

      You see, it is already precisely defined.

    5. It really annoys me to see large areas defined in "Rhode Islands" instead of the proper Imperial units of "Wales"

    6. What concerns me is how the Blocked Dwarf got access to my shed ?

  4. I blame Edgar the peaceful in 960 who decreed that all measures must agree with standards kept in London and Winchester.

    1. I assume that is the same Edgar who was rowed on the Dee at Chester by eight subordinate kings, an event commemorated by the "Edgar's Eight" mural at the Bull & Stirrup pub in the city.

    2. You should blame George IV for switching from the traditional English customary system to this new-fangled 'Imperial' malarky in 1824.

    3. The act came in to force in 1826

  5. Congratulations on your accolade! I certainly hope we keep the pint for beer, not that it was ever under any threat.

    1. But, in practice and once you allow for the head, beer is served in half litres.

    1. It's a term coined by Simon Everitt of BRAPA fame - a child who is also a twat, commonly encountered in pubs :-(

    And now a beer named after you. Is there no end to this fame. Not sure you'll be impressed by the Corbyn portrait though.

    1. There's an Oakham Curmudgeon Ale in my Twitter avi, although I don't have a beard and wouldn't be caught dead wearing yellow trousers!

    1. You are so kind, Mr Tyson. So who in your view takes the crown from me?

    2. Well you tell me first what "worst" means in this context and I'll start drawing up a list:)

    3. You would have to ask Mr @pezholio for a definition. I assume he means "has evil unreconstructed right-wing views" ;-)

  9. No one could possibly be worse than that puling little catamite compurgator chappie.
