Sit down and put that beer away

So last week Kinky was serving as grand marshal in a St. Patrick’s Day parade and gets spotted taking a sip of Guinness while in the car.

Obviously he’s violating the open container law but no charges are filed.

Kinky had this to say in a statement issued by spokeswoman Laura Stromberg:

“Guinness is the drink that kept the Irish from taking over the world. It would be unthinkable not to have a Guinness during a St. Patrick’s Day parade. In fact, it would be spiritually wrong”

Ok, he wasn’t driving and it was a parade so I can forgive the breaking of the law. No harm done. But nobody is questioning what he meant by “the drink that kept the Irish from taking over the world.” What is that? Is that a slam on the Irish? Is he saying that the only reason the Irish have not turned their attention to world domination is because they have been too drunk?

Of course most people I’ve heard responding to this news sound pretty much like the equivalent of a bunch a frat boys at a kegger yelling “Chug it, chug it!”.

  1. it’s pretty hard to chug a Guiness.

    Down with Kinky! The joke’s over and the truth of his true political ties is out. Give
    Give your support to the only non-GOPiggie that will be on the ballot, CHRIS BELL!
    He’s also the only Houstonian on the ballot. H-TOWN REPRESENT!

  2. To Violate the open container law in Texas you must possess the open container in the “passanger area of a motor vehicle.” The Guiness is clearly out side of the “passenger area” as Kinky is not in “the area of a motor vehicle designed for the seating of the operator and passengers of the vehilce” so Kinky is not in violation of Sec. 49.031. My question is what drink keeps Texans from taking over the world?
