Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. So do two Jagerbombs followed by a Carbomb, you fools.

more on bourbon vs. scotch

A photo of the Scotch ambassador, Simon Brooking, and his bagpipe buddy.

I really have nothing else to say about this -- even though I said I did. Hmmm ... I did learn that the saying "whole 9 yards" comes from the fact that a kilt is 9 yards in length. Interesting.

I'll still take my bourbon over Scotch, even though they have cooler accents.

Bourbon or Scotch??

So, I went to The Great Whisk(e)y Debate last night at Churchill Downs. Basically, it was a debate between two distillers about their products. I'll write more about it when I get a chance -- and probably post some pictures. It was a great evening -- and I learned a lot about scotch, which I knew little about. It definitely has its own unique taste, but not a taste I'd give my bourbon up for.

We sampled Laphroaig single-malt scotch -- and I must admit it was nasty, even though it was a free sample. It smelled like charred ass and tasted like the stuff I put on canker sores. I actually left my shot sitting on the table -- and that never happens.

Stay tuned 4 thingz I learnt ...

It's LEO creative director Scott Shroering's last day. He's been with us for about seven years! It will certainly be quiet around here -- Scott tends to rant on everything from the hypocrisy of President Bush and Jessica Simpson to the perfection of Wilco and fine bourbon.

Scott, you will be missed. Cheers!
