Is This The Worst Thing England's Done To Ireland This Year?

Is This The Worst Thing England's Done To Ireland This Year?

We should've known 2016 was going to be bad when this drink was created in the first two months.

The beauty of the Guinness is unrivalled, as any good Irish person would tell you. But ask our dastardly neighbours, the English, and they'll tell you it needs an upgrade.

In one of the most offensive displays of 2016, back in February an English bar came up with the most blood and stomach curdling cocktail ever concocted: the Badger. Not only does it look like cold vomit in a glass, it is just downright mental. Warning: this is not a joke.

The Badger is a mixture of Guinness and Smirnoff Ice, because it was obviously about time we mixed an Irish icon with a drink you used to smuggle to your friend's house and drink in a shed. It is a fusion of idiocy and pure hatred and our country folk have already torn the pub to shreds for even suggesting a cocktail could improve upon the drink of Gods.

The staff at the Marine Boathouse in Skegness, Lincolnshire said: "Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it! It’s amazing!"

"It’s blasphemy and heaven at the same time, I’m not sure how I feel about this", said one commenter.


Another truthfully added, "Dreadful waste of good Guinness".

"You’ll feel rough as a badger’s arse after a few of them", said one other truth-talker.

Why do some people just want to watch the world burn?
