what have the welsh given us ??

#1
The Scots gave us whiskey amongst other things, the Irish gave us guiness and potcheen and the English donated real ale - but what have the Welsh given to the drinking classes ????
 
#4
Reason for being thankful,
THAT WE AREN'T WELSH?

Now thats a good enough reason for me
All they are is Irishmen to lazy to learn to swim, and i'm all in favour of the Irish

The Worlds Smallest Hole!

Researchers at Cardiff University's Manufacturing Engineering Centre have managed to drill holes in steel as small as 22 microns (0.022 mm) in diameter using a electro-discharge machining (EDM) process, and reckon they could be the smallest ever achieved.

Theres an outfit in Wales called "Celtic Country Wines", who produce some fairly interesting tipple.

Their range includes:-

Mead

Celtic original sloe gin

Damson vodka

Blackberry brandy

Plus more varieties of wine than you could shake a sh*tty leek at isnt it.

The spirits are all fairly tame (26%) but well worth a try look you.

Cheese on toast.

Nothing great can ever come from a country whose national dish is made under a grill.

There's a few embarrasing ones there I agree, Hislop denies his Welshness (can't say I blame him really).

I'll just say it's easier being patriotic about Wales when you don't have to live there.

Don't ever let the Paddys forget their Patron Saint is Welsh :D
