More Boorish Behavior

Hot on the heels of King C's post about kids in pubs, we now have an epic fracas between two titans of British beer writing--Pete Brown and Roger Protz (Protz comments on the original post, then expands things here). For the voyeuristic, a fun read. And be sure to hear the accents in your mind's ear for full effect.

My comment is this: in public spaces you will find bad behavior. Mostly you'll find good behavior, but you'll also find a bit of boorishness. Add booze and you speed and intensify things. The only moral is that humans are flawed; gather a group of people together and you see the flaws on glorious display.

Found this little gem in the comments:

In which the blogger links to some great comics from the Brit version of Mad Magazine. They so closely dovetail with some of the nonsense that I sometimes see from Oregon beer snobs (and certain bloggers) that I would like to link them all:
