      Ghood Ghrief, that one was almost too much for me so on that one I'll close, and go galumphing off as I go whiffling thru the tulgy wood. Well, we all gotta go sometime.

      Among other things, this vintage piece of faan fiction explains why a mail ballot for ratification of business meeting proposals is Not a Ghood Idea.

      And even if the pub serves ghood bheer, the presence of the 100 gin/whisky/CocaCola/springwater "multi-genre" drinkers may make it sufficiently difficult to find the other 5 bheer fans in the crowd, that it dilutes the bheerish experience and makes it more worth my while saving my bheer budget for going down the road to the other pub that may have a smaller selection of bheer but a higher concentration of the people I want to drink with.

Usage notesEdit
