I once got told the only difference between carling and tennents was the water in carling was english , you sir are clearly much the same , as comparisions between crawfords and laiphroig can only be done whilst truly and utter steaming hanging upside down from dave's wire geetar in the ascot .

I like skateboarding, a lot - and i aint too bad at it either, but at least i aint a freak like "visigoths"...
why can't you "skate or die" folk just chill out and stop thinking your little night out on the pull is a big thing... i mean, come on - get to some decent spots to drink you pints of carling extra cold eh?

Rumour has it that those inter-galactic skate minks from the so-called "skate or die soundsystem" now have a club night starting a week on sunday. what kind of pagan magick is this?
it is said that skaters can gain entry into this den of sin for free ! !
witchcraft !
those crazy mixed-up guys from the future even claim to have a babe-magnet operating deep within their pyschedelic cavern !
seek these four-wheeled mutants at your peril.
their technology is vile !
and their hearts black !
i know this for sure...
skate or die !
