Guiness, mind you, is not a drink; it's a FOOD! Food for the blood.

My motto: If you can see through it - don't drink it!

(The true dyed-in-the-wool, frustrated-uptight-neurotic-yuppie prick would always choose a "diet" beer.)


this post just proves flagpole willy's point:

some guy, posting on the an internet message board under the handle of "sooner",is trying to educate the world about the finer qualities of guiness stout.

if there was ever a yuppie thing to do - this was it.


Damn straight my brother! If a person thinks a beer has a quality other than to get them drunk, then that person is drinking a yuppie beer. But Future Doctor, you said it first and you said it best, so you get the CRED.

Excellent post there Future Doctor.

I think everybody is a yuppie to somebody. I drive an old rusted out Jeep, go camping and fishing, and only drink when I want to get lit. But I have a 9 to 5 that pays well and I don't get dirty (except my thoughts about the women I work around). So I really think you bitches that drink beer that sounds cool cause its an import are yuppies.

Yuppies: dogs from a breader
BLC: dogs from the pound
White Trash: Coon dogs from a breeder that cost more than yer truck. Yeee haww boys.

You'd probably call me a blue collar runner. I come from a town that has an un-employment rate higher than the national average. Most of the guys in my neighborhood work at the docks, concrete, carpentry or roofing. Two summers ago I worked at a screen factory in 100+ heat to earn money for school. Last week I worked all kinds of odd jobs and still got in my 60+mpw. During the winter time I run in beat up old sweat pants and a beat up old zipper hoodie with a head band and no gloves. I still run with yuppies though. My friend loves when I show to group runs where everyone is wearing expensive gear and I come out with paint blotched worn out sweat gear. My cross training is bicycling with my dad. We show up to group rides in jean shorts and cotton t-shirts. People don't think anything of it until we start pacing out at 25MPH and pass people with the million dollar bikes and thousand dollar gear.

Most of the blue collar types that I know like Guinness, especially those of Irish-Catholic descent. If you don't believe me, go to a bar in Southie and exclaim that Guinness is a yuppie beer. See what happens. For maximum effect, go during a Red Sox game. And if the objective is to really get drunk, why drink beer at all when you can have a fifth of JD?

P.S.: My mom lives in a trailer.

BCR: Says, "I'm not sure, but I think I've run something like 1,200 days in a row. I don't count really, but I could figure it out. I missed a day after getting hit by the SUV-beyotch about 3 or 4 yrs ago."

I was going to say Jack with a dab of coke (cola) would be my drunk of choice, but I was afraid some freak would assume liqour as yuppie rather than hillbilly. White trash power (if it don't get cut off) Woooo hooooo.

Once again, a poster has somehow confused the labels "Blue Collar" and "White Trash".

Good call. It is generally not a great idea to go out and buy the most expensive gear for show if you are not very good at what you do because that way you come across as a complete no-hoper. I belong to a rifle club and we got people who spend a LOT of money on the best looking gear and people just watch and turn away with a grin when they see how they score!

Btw, blue collar does not = no class. I know plenty of people with money and they got no class at all!

Dealing with nasty black toenails:
YR: go the spa and get a pedicure
BCR: rip it off

After getting bitten by a dog on a run:
YR: suing the owner
BCR: biting the dog back

Dealing with the summer heat:
YR: running on a treadmill at Ballys
BCR: going commando

Also, I dont know many yuppies who get off work at 3 PM more likely to do a lunch run with coworkers and work late to get a bigger end of year bonus. The BCR would be running from the cops at 2 AM after starting a bar brawl
