“Drink is the curse of the land. It makes you fight with your neighbor. It makes you shoot at your landlord and it makes you miss him.”

Irish proverb for comparison

There's nothing like the scene in Gunga Din, were they here the coming bagpipes of the Army in the distance, getting louder, coming to attack the Thuggs and save them. But its a trap and Gunga Din takes his bugle and climbs atop the golden shrine blowing recall to warn the troops, and getting shot by the evil goons. Then the funeral bagpipes where Tennyson hands his poem to the Commander, " Tho' I whipped you and scorned you, by the very God that made us, you were a far better man than I, Gunga Din".
The Highland Regulars were no sanctimonious liberals like they've got now. :clap: =D> :shh: :lol: =;
