So, looking at that map, it seems like we can solve a lot of world hunger issues... Just provide those countries with more whiskey, vodka, tequila, rum, gin, and brandy!

Any interest in pinning our locations?
We're thinking about do this with a large wall map at our office, 1 pin per client.

I thought that someone set up a "pinnable" map once of Axiom owners... I wonder if that still exists.

I fondly(?) remember Screech from my posting in Gander, Nfld in the 1980s.

Oh the horrors...

Have to say I'm surprised that whiskey isn't the most popular in Canada (or the US).

Whiskey and 7.
Half mug ice, 2 ounces whiskey, fill the mug with 7.
mmmm, ... whiskey....

Speaking of Screech - when I was first sent to Gander, I (like all other mainlanders) was required to go through the 'Screech In' ceremony. It consists of a humourous historical Newfie speech by 'The Screech Master' followed by the requirement of the victim to down in 1 gulp a generous shot glass of Screech; however, there is a trick to this exercise. After the upchuck & gag reflex subside, it is necessary to lick the remaining nectar out of the glass - right to the bottom. Failure to do so results in having to repeat the torture until one figures that bit out - thankfully I was pre-briefed, ha! The date & victim's name is then duly logged into a ledger behind the bar; however, it is imperative to remember the date so that the proof can easily be found within the time limit or panic can set in quickly!

Oh, one other rule - being 'Screeched-In' in one location does not follow the person from place to place in Nfld and/or Labrador. So, be prepared to undergo this barbarism wherever one goes. Avoiding bars or repeating the ceremony are the only alternatives....

Why thank you kind sir! As much as we love to give you a hard time, we really are paying attention to the important stuff... like screech vs moonshine.

Some rather thought provoking items on these maps.

Since I'm on a "bar" theme, I'd like to add the note of one who has never consumed alcohol, but made a living for a while as a bartender.

The predominance of Vodka only shows that most people consume cocktails, worldwide. While rarely does one hear an order of a mixed drink with WT101, most liquors are not consumed straight, especially vodka.

The young Beatles were told that classy people drank brandy. They hated it, so they had it with coke. I actually got to serve one to Ringo in the early 80's. Remy and coke.

Wow.

Too bad it wasn't one of the good Beatles, though, huh?

One of them was already dead, so I had to take what I could get.
