Whew, that was good comedy. I don't know what was funnier, the thread as a whole or the OP expecting it to go differently. That post would start the same thread of responses in any forum. I'll stop typing now, I know when to STFU.

I'm intrigued as well, but I think that is only one of many ways he could come after you. NFI either, but sounds nice on paper.

Nah, just abbreviate all beer into two catagories
A = ales
L = lagers.
