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

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...)

Oh, and I'm in Cleveland only for another 3 or 4 days... then back to Boston (but I will be in Y'town this coming Sunday - at St. John's - before departing for the great chasm and pit that is Massachussets).

Oh, the custom title needs to reflect not only our lofty status as Metropolitan of Metaxa, but also needs to reach out to the Greek-speakers in our midst who would be under the direct jurisdiction of the Metropolis of Metaxa (it being a Greek liquor).

And I'll get a hold of you probably while I'm in C-bus visiting sis for her birthday...

Protocol 217660.03
Indiction 21
Encyclical Letter 2104: On the semi-monthly remembrance of the semi-annual remembrance of the annual memorial of one of the Earliest Imbibing Communities, and Thronal Feastday.

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!

It is with great joy and in the blessings of the Great Distiller that we greet you on this wonderful remembrance.  It is always our pleasure to write to you, the plentitude, on the great semi-monthly (10th and 25th of each month) remembrance of the semi-annual (25th of March, 25th of September) remembrance of the Feastday of one of the Earliest Imbibing Communities, the Ancient Greeks (March 25th), our patronal and Thronal Feastday.  And it has been one of the great challenges that we have relished, to bring you a fresh, inspiring, and edifying message on the 24 days per year that we remember our Thronal Feast.

[bible]Genesis 44:3-5[/bible]

In one of the great events in Biblical history, Joseph uses his drinking cup, the cup used for imbibing at his dinner table, as the tool and means for reuniting himself with his brothers who sold him into slavery.  In the sliding of his cup into the sack of his brother, he forced the brothers to return to him, and at that meeting he revealed himself to them, completing their joy with the promise of shelter and food to be found under his power in the land of Egypt.

This is the hope we have on this day, the semi-monthly commemoration of the semi-annual remembrance of the Thronal Feast, that we use our cups for the restoration of brotherhood, and the furthering of our Love in the Great Distiller.  These are our cups of imbibing, our cups of celebration, our cups of partaking of the precious aged-wine that is the wonderful Metaxa, holiest of the drinks of our Throne.  These cups are given to us to hold within our hands as symbols of the communion and fellowship that the cup, and the drink, can provide.  Through a cup, the Apprentices partook of the wine changed-into blood of our Great Distiller.  Through a cup, the Apprentices shared their community with their apprentices throughout the ages.  And it is through this cup, and through the sacred nectar which we drink from it, that we can further our union with one another in the One Who changed water into wine.

May He Who was born of The Virgin, and who performed His first miracle with the creation of Alchohol from the ultimate of sobriety, be with us in our celebration!  In His service we remain faithfully yours,

+ GEORGE

To the reverened Distillery Metropolitans, Distribution Despotas, Pricing Presbyters, Imbibing Deacons,

The Great Distiller is revealed to us!

It has come to our venerable attention that there is the possibility that one may take the various encyclicals, protocols, and correspondences from the members of the Holy Synod of Spirits (and the former Archbishop of Stolichnaya) and misconstrue them, twist them, and/or form a cult from them.  While we understand the possibility of taking any statement made by reasonable human beings and twisting it out of context, we feel that it is necessary to make sure that our words are not taken so.

The correspondences, encyclicals, protocols, and decisions of the members of the Holy Synod of Spirits are only to be taken, disseminated, and understood within the context of the Holy Church which we represent.  Any attempts to take our teachings, guidance, or declarations and use them to form an ecclesiastical body outside of the canonical Church will be met with Anathema for causing schism.  For there is one communion of the Alchohol, which is represented and signified in the communion of her hierarchs.  May all those who wish to form competing or parallel ecclesiastical bodies be banished to the pits of sobriety.

May He Who was born of The Virgin, and who performed His first miracle with the creation of Alchohol from the ultimate of sobriety, be with us in our celebration!  In His service we remain faithfully yours,

Ahhh - the initials at the bottom of letters such as those represent the one who authorized/signed the letter (i.e the person that it's from) and the person who typed/wrote the letter (secretary/assistant)...

So in this case, MGB = Metropolitan + GEORGE of Brandy, and gsc = my initials.

It's not "mind-numbing" most of the time.  Some threads here are quite interesting.  Some more like are "blood-boiling" at least for some of our denizens. (Do we have "denizens" here? Or do I need a different collective noun, since it's usually part of 'denizens of the Deep'.)

1. I think we do indeed have denizens...
2. I was referring strictly to this thread as "mind-numbing"...

This thread is like Seinfeld, a story about nothing at all.

We could bring it to a higher plane then "Seinfeld", but the first quote that came to mind for me *was* from Shakespeare, but from the 5th act of "Macbeth"

"...it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."

I'll try to find one more ummm complimentary.

Of course - the great mish-mosh thread...
But I think I've said it before - it is nice to have a thread of nothing, to help distract one from all the seriousness and battling that can go on elsewhere on the site...
