Toasts @ Foxy's

When we drink, we get drunk.
When we get drunk, we fall asleep.
When we fall asleep, we commit no sin.
When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
So, let’s all get drunk, and go to heaven!
--Old Irish toast

Here’s to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one.
< A pretty girl and an honest one.
A cold beer—and another one!
--Old Irish toast

He that buys land buys many stones.
He that buys flesh buys many bones.
He that buys eggs buys many shells,
But he that buys good beer buys nothing else.

An Irishman is never drunk as long as
He can hold onto one blade of grass and not
Fall off the face of the earth.
--Old Irish toast
Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chamber of my brain.
Quaintest thoughts, queerest fancies
Come to life and fade away.
What care I how time advances;
I am drinking ale today.
--Edgar Allen Poe

For every wound, a balm.
For every sorrow, cheer.
For every storm, a calm.
For every thirst, a beer.

A statesman is an easy man, he tells his lies by rote.
A journalist invents his lies, and rams them down your throat.
So stay at home and drink your beer and let the neighbors vote.
--William Butler Yeats

Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all that we will know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you and I sigh.
--William Butler Yeats

The problem with some people is that
when they aren’t drunk they're sober.

Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer.
Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention,

And his bones be dug up by dogs
And dragged through the streets of Minneapolis.

I will drain that glass again.

Through the chambers of my brain.

Come to life and fade away:
What care I how time advances?
I am drinking ale today.
--Edgar Allan Poe

May the devil make a ladder of your backbone
While he is picking apples in the garden of Hell.

and drink thy wine with a merry heart.

When all you have is a heap of debt
a pint of plain is your only man.

Sister's in the pantry bottling the suds,
Father's in the cellar mixin' up the hops,
Johnny's on the front porch watchin' for the cops.
--Prohibition song

Pure water is the best gifts a man can bring.
But who am I that I should have the best of anything?
Let princes revel at the pump, let peers with ponds make free,
...beer is good enough for me.
--Lord Neaves

Let us sing our own treasures, Old England's good cheer,
To the profits and pleasures of stout British beer;
Your wine tippling, dram sipping fellows retreat,
But your beer drinking Britons can never be beat.
The French with their vineyards and meager pale ale,
They drink from the squeezing of half ripe fruit;
But we, who have hop-yards to mellow our ale,
Are rosy and plump and have freedom to boot.
--English drinking song, circa 1757

Why, we'll smoke and drink our beer.
For I like a drop of good beer, I does.
I'ze fond of good beer, I is.
Let gentlemen fine sit down to their wine.
But we'll all of us here stick to our beer.
--Old Somersetshire English song

Drink is the feast of reason and the flow of soul.

Here's a toast to the roast that good fellowship lends,
With the sparkle of beer and wine;
May its sentiment always be deeper, my friends,
Than the foam at the top of the stein.

Then here's to the heartening wassail,
Wherever good fellows are found;
Be its master instead of its vassal,
and order the glasses around.
--Ogden Nash

'Twas an evening in November,
As I very well remember.
I was strolling down the street in drunken pride,
But my knees were all aflutter,
So I landed in the gutter,
And a pig came up a lay down by my side.
Yes, I lay there in the gutter
Thinking thoughts I could not utter,
When a colleen passing by did softly say,
"You can tell a man that boozes
By the company he chooses."
At that the pig got up and walked away!
--"The Irish Pig"

But the greatest love--the love above all loves,
Even greater than that of a mother...
Is the tender, passionate, undying love,
Of one beer drunken slob for another.

When the hour is nigh me,
Let me in a tavern die,
With a tankard by me.

Life, alas,
Up with the glass,
Down with the beer!

Here's to heat...
not the kind that ignites and burns down shantys...
but the kind that exictes...and slides down panties!

Friends may peter out, you know.
But we'll be friends through thick and thin,
Peter out or peter in.

Here's to you,
Here's to me.
For all this beer,
that it could be.
Here's to you,
Here's to me,
F**k You
Here's to me!
