Did You Know?

On a typical 16th century English warship, a sailor's weekly ration of beer was about eight gallons, or roughly ten pints per day.

No wonder they were known to be a wee bit swarthy!

I'm going to make a motion at the next EMFT meeting.

Throw out the snacks!!!

Bring in the beer ration!!!

Instead of the doxology at the end of the night we'd probably end up singing something unfortunate.

Heh, heh, heh....
