BRANNAS!!!

Posted in :Original Content on 11 Aug 2017 at 12:25

Ok guys – so I’m trying to step completely our of character here and open up a thread that I can only refer to as “Vrydagkakpraat”, if you’ll pardon my use of the taal.

Thinks have got a little staid around here of late and it’s time to blast through and just have a good old-fashioned session where we talk about anything and everything (well, within the scope of the site rules, of course).

Pour yourself a drink, it’s Friday after all! Let’s get the ball rolling. Jokes, funny stories, deep personal confessions. It’s all good as Brannasmiddag comes to Sharksworld. You can even post in any vernacular language you please!

Please don’t make me regret this :)

  • @robdylan (Comment 25) : Interesting fact about Gin, when they English went over to India, they were pestered by mosquito’s, so they then started drinking their gin with tonic, and they believed that it was the tonic that kept the mosquito’s away, but in fact it was actually the gin, but ya not a bad drink at all

    I on the other hand prefer my Wiskey :lol:

  • @HB (Comment 26) : is that true? I’d always believed it was the quinine in the tonic water that did it.

    Gin is crazy juice, man. They used to make it with wormwood that would literally drive people insane. There’s no more of that now, but I still feel a little odd when I drink it.

    I like Whiskey too…. far too much, in fact. What’s your favourite?

    then I had Hennessy once at a function we were at, that is like an angle wissing on your tong, I bet you guys have better Whiskey that side than what we do here

    I can’t say that it is a fact about the gin, with the Indai story, I read it somewhere a while ago, but can’t confirm it as factual

    A beautiful body is a creation of nature, very much like a mountain vista or an African sunset. If you cannot appreciate those, there is something seriously wrong with you.
    Perhaps to avoid offending anyone, we should stick pictures without the skimpy claddings.
