i hate the way people make fun of the south. this isn't to say that there aren't some southerners who ask for it.

"Orioles pitcher Eric DuBose was charged with driving under the influence in Sarasota, Fla., on Monday morning, about 12 hours before he was scheduled to start a game at the team's minor league complex. According to the police report, a deputy saw DuBose's truck swerve across the yellow line three times. Upon pulling him over, the deputy noticed that DuBose's speech was slurred, he exhibited poor balance, had watery and blood-shot eyes and an 'odor of alcoholic beverage.' When instructed to recite the alphabet, DuBose allegedly said, 'I'm from Alabama, and they have a different alphabet.'"

Jeremy, of this Good Friday shall I make'th the most!
I shall abscond'th with a Catholic wafer host
adding glaze and jelly once tunred to toast
verily to share'th with the Holy Ghost!
shall in Hell I then be sent to roast
for making such a boast?
I pray'th thee, respond'th to this post

LDM: I'm really not the best arbiter of what constitutes sacrilege and what penalties are implied.

To comment on the original post - dpn't you find that many people becoming somewhat dumber after drinking large quantities of alcohol? I for one, however, used to only be able to remember the equation for calculating the Roche radius while extremely inebriated, which is probably why I gave up being an Astrophysisist (they tend to frown upon coming to exams drunk).

Hey jnsys --

I bet they also frown on the inability to spell A-S-T-R-O-P-H-Y-S-I-C-I-S-T.
