AN APPRECIATION: The Genius of Guinness

With apologies to Mr. Yeats

Down by the beer garden my love and I did meet;
She passed the beer garden with little snow-white feet.
She bid me, “Have another Guinness – best of all the beers!”
But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.

With apologies to Mr. Joyce

and I asked with my eyes to ask again yes and then he asked have another Guinness yes and first I put my hands around the glass and I could feel my heart yes going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes.

With apologies to Mr. Shaw

Higgins: Stop. Say, ‘a cup of tea.’
Liza: C-c-c-I can’t. C-cup.
Higgins: Good. Say, ‘Have another Guinness.’
Liza: Have another Guinness.
Higgins: By Jupiter, she’s done it at the first shot.
