  • Weed I never done, Beer I almost drowned in...

    Being not a hippie I couldn't give a rat *ss about weed winning this one, which SpoileR Alert: It didn't....

    Funny thing it's that Greg Giraldo didn't appeared on the show this time, and I guess he could have said a lot since He's a recovering alcoholic and Drug User, maybe he took the fifth on the grounds of not being able to testify against his own former lovers (or past times if you will).

    My heart was rooting for Beer, and my blood pressure has increased over the years due to it, the Irish in me rooted all the show for one of my favorites drinks, but since I had already put a few cold ones in my belly, I got confused and forgot if being deemed the root of all evil was the goal or the thing to avoid, so I really don't even know what number I dialed for the voting, since i received ten minutes later a very angry call from one of my ex-girlfriends I suspect I dialed another thing entirely different... Oh well... I´m still not buying weed's arguments... even after seeing the great movie "Beerfest" (don't ask me if sarcasm, right now I don´t know)and waiting for the sequel "Potfest", so I think beer it´s a man´s best friend, since with beer there´s no ugly women and gudge that c´t be forgiven..specially when I am the one who made the first transgression...So cheers!!moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Lewis Black: Beer gives you a fat belly and pot gives you man-boobs. Beer turns your liver into a pickle-bloated-football-sized-hardened-lump. Pot causes your lungs to blacken and takes away your memory. If you smoke too much Marijuana you fall asleep, if you drink too much beer you'll stay awake looking for a fight because no one will have sex with you.

    • Paul F. Tompkins: Weed does not make you creative, weed makes you think you are creative. But it turns out, you are wrong.

    • Lewis Black: Weed should be harmless enough, because as pot-heads argue, mother nature put it here. But, mother nature gave us other things that aren't a good idea to smoke such as oregano, magnesium and puffer fish. Many people believe that legalizing Marijuana will result in serious health and criminal issues. While the other side thinks that dragons are eating their eyeballs.

    • Paul F. Tompkins: Weed distorts reality. And your breath. How come people that get high never get the munchies for altoids? Cover your mouth, Shaggy.

    • Paul F. Tompkins: Weed distorts reality. And your breath. How come people that get high never get the munchies for Altoids? Cover your mouth, Shaggy.

      Shaggy is a character from the cartoon Scooby-Doo, who is considered a weed icon because he is always craving "Scooby Snacks."
