Heck, the way we hit 100K, we could do it in a night...

Christmas Vacation -> imbibing -> warming the soul -> Metaxa (it is the duty of the Metropolitan of Metaxa to bring it back to his diocese as much as possible, no?)

Protocol 217659.01
Indiction 21
Encyclical Letter 2102

From the Bazaar,
to the Plentitude of the Faithful over the age of 21 in the US of A, and to all the faithful in the world abroad,
To the reverened Distillery Metropolitans, Distribution Despotas, Pricing Presbyters, Imbibing Deacons,
Instructors and students at the Bartending Universities,

The Great Distiller is revealed to us!

[bible]Luke 6:20[/bible]

It is with these words that the Lord begins His sermon on the Plain, to His disciples and the multitudes.  These multitudes were the common people of the area, the fishermen, tradesmen, tax-collectors, carpenters, and their families.  Often times they had barely enough to scrape by, and were forced to make the best use of what they had - conserve their wine, and not distill any, since the wine they had was scarce.  These were the people of God, the people whom Christ tells "yours is the Kingdom of God."
It is to the multitude of the poor that it is especially important to reach out and proclaim the Good News of the Great Distiller.  The message of the joys and saving benefits of alchohol can and will help these people deal with the difficulties of life, and provide for them an escape from the mundane realities of daily life.
We promote and encourage those who are in the most distress and hardship to do those things which will make this healing drinking more possible: purchase/create alchohols within their means, cooperate with those closest to them in production and procurement, and use glass to imbibe, since the glass is cleanable and reusable quite easily.
But it is also understood by our divinely-instituted office that there are those who possess not glass, but rather have plastic - and they use this plastic as they would use glass, washing and reusing it, and in the process saving funds for the procurement of liquors.  To this we say, all is well, good and faithful servants; while glass is the preferrable way to go, there is dispensation and allowance for the use of plasic, with the understanding that if life's circumstances change, and resources increase, that glass will be procured for proper imbibing.

Always yours, in the love of the Great Distiller, who imbibes with all and for all.

Pleasure's all mine - it's reassuring to know that I'm not the only one whose humor can be labelled as "twisted" :p

The Great Distiller is in our midst!

It is with great sadness that we have received your characterization of our correspondence and dialogue as "twisted."  As we know that you mean no malice, rest assured that it does not damage your relationship to our holy see or to the Great and Holy Synod of Spirits.  We hope that you, through prayer and alchohol (once you turn 21) can come to the truth of our pursuits, and may see in our work the will of the Great Distiller and His Apprentices.

In the joy of the One who turned water into nectar, I remain,

His Inebriatedness the Bishop of Bourbon, Vicar of the Great Distiller, Successor to the Prince of the Apprentices of the Great Distiller, Supreme Pontiff of All Alcohol, Patriarch of all Grain-Based Alcohols, Primate of Kentucky, Archbishop and Metropolitan of All Whisky, Sovereign of Loretto, and Servant of the Servants of the Great Distiller, Presiding Bishop of the Holy Synod of the Spirits.

With Fraternal Love, to Our Brother in Alcoholism, His All-Imbibedness the Metropolitan of Metaxa and all Brandy, Chief Secretariat of the Holy Synod of the Spirits.

Our Inebriatedness stands in agreement with Your All-Imbebedness being saddened by the describing of our most drunk correspondence as 'twisted,' for while there are many words with which to describe the inebriated state we do not consider 'twisted' to be among them. Though we also agree that in the interest of spreading alcoholism economy is certainly in order, provided the holy state of inebriation is treated with more dignity in the future.

However, also in your letter Our Inebriatedness noticed an emphasis on the age of twenty-one years in regard to the consumption of alcohol. For while Our Inebriatedness understands that in this land the forces of temperance, prohibition, and sobriety has instituted such a law to hinder the drinking acts of the Great Distiller it should also be noted that our correspondence and and encyclicals are international in scope and, thus, should not be taken as to imply that those who live in freer and more tolerant lands and have not yet completed their twenty-first year, yet are of a sufficient age to drink in their land, should not consume freely in accordance with the ancient canons and ancient customs of alcoholism.

His Inebriatedness the Bishop of Bourbon, Supreme Pontiff of All Alcohol, and Servant of the Servants of the Great Distiller, President of the Holy Synod of the Spirits.

To His Inebriatedness, the Bishop of Bourbon and Supreme Pontiff of All Alchohol,

The Great Distiller is revealed to us!

As you know well from our conversations, and from the implication of our greeting in the letter (to the people over 21 in the USA and all others worldwide), We did not intend to pidgeonhole the faithful that live outside of the puritanical tyrrany of the United States into an age range over 21, but rather were providing a pastoral message to a member of the flock who does live in the land of Spirits-ual oppression.  We apologize if there was any confusion!

Sincerely yours in the Great Distiller, in Whose name we will imbibe together soon enough,

+ GEORGE
Metropolitan of Metaxa and All Brandy,
Chief Secretariat of the Holy Synod of Spirits.

Well, in my pastoral advice, you probably should not drink in public situations, or situations that can get you into trouble here in the USA.  But once you turn 21, or you visit another nation with lower alchohol age limits, then go ahead!  (Or if you're in the privacy of your own home...)
