haha what the fuck is this beef between SLAG and Jakey?

Was it because of that offhand UKIP comment? :joy:


#7

Yeah, but wouldn’t go as far as to call it beef haha. The above isn’t some sort of continuation though, it’s me poking fun at myself, and a reference to the picture SLAG posted in the OP :grin:

What do people do on Georges day? Drink lots of tea or something?

thats just a normal day. Tea is life.

I have to admit, I had to look up “St. George”, as I really didn’t know him.
Apparently, he was a Greek guy who may or may not have existed, did or did not serve as a mercenary in the Roman army since he wasn’t able to get a proper job, may or may not have fought a “dragon”, and got himself killed (or not) for blatant insubordination.
Interesting choice of “saint”. :grinning:

I believe St George became popular in the late Middle Ages, in the same manner as the English aristocracy co-opted the legend of King Arthur. No doubt someone wrote a book about him and he became fashionable, and before long we were beating up the French in his name. As a German I’m sure you appreciate that :wink:
