So last week Kinky was serving as grand marshal in a St. Patrick’s Day parade and gets spotted taking a sip of Guinness while in the car.
Obviously he’s violating the open container law but no charges are filed.
Kinky had this to say in a statement issued by spokeswoman Laura Stromberg:
“Guinness is the drink that kept the Irish from taking over the world. It would be unthinkable not to have a Guinness during a St. Patrick’s Day parade. In fact, it would be spiritually wrong”
Ok, he wasn’t driving and it was a parade so I can forgive the breaking of the law. No harm done. But nobody is questioning what he meant by “the drink that kept the Irish from taking over the world.” What is that? Is that a slam on the Irish? Is he saying that the only reason the Irish have not turned their attention to world domination is because they have been too drunk?
Of course most people I’ve heard responding to this news sound pretty much like the equivalent of a bunch a frat boys at a kegger yelling “Chug it, chug it!”.
