I have been sitting on a news item from almost a month ago. I guess I had this “feeling” that there was more to the story than what I was reading.
The story was simply said to be about a fire at a brewery in Ireland. Yes, THAT one.
And, the details were reported in more than one news source, thereby deflecting any suspicion of a possible conspiracy.
“…some 200 people evacuated from the Guinness brewery at St James” Gate, Dublin, yesterday when a fire started during roof repairs on a storage warehouse at the site.”
“Flames shot through the building for a short time and billowing smoke could be seen for miles while fire crews fought to bring the blaze under control.”
“It is understood that a blow torch was being used in the repairs and much of the smoke from the fire was attributed to tar and felt on the roof.”
Let me get this straight. You expect me to believe a fire could start from a blowtorch on paper covered with tar?
A likely story.
But, another piece of the puzzle came into focus when I reported earlier this week about a crazy story of airport officials sneaking explosives into the backpack of someone bound for, wait for it…Ireland.
See the connection yet? What? You say, “no.”
I found a fact hidden in one of the news accounts that starts to paint a picture, at least for the highly gullible and overly paranoid of us. As to background (page filler) information, way down near the bottom, the story read,
“Guinness brews its flagship dark-brown stout, as well as lagers Carlsberg and Budweiser, at the brewery in west Dublin.”
Guinness AND Budweiser brewed at the same brewery…in the same kettles…bottled in the same pipes…?!?!?!?
As a general rule, I don’t drink beer I can see through.
If I want a drink of something that looks like yellow water, well..I just don’t.
Unless I am really drunk and on my knees in a certain room and get really, really thirsty.
Guinness, on the other hand, tastes like nectar; like a gift from the beer gods.
A creamy, thick brown, sometimes semi-warm liquid. (But, in a good way.)
So, you can now clearly see my theory on the fire. What? You still can’t.
Someone might have planted those explosives on that guy going to Ireland to take out the brewery.
The Irish are a proud people with a beautiful country; you think they wanted it let out that Bud is brewed with their beloved Guinness?
I think not.
I should also mention that two courageous firefighters were injured while fighting the blaze.
After all, there was beer at stake.
And, I am happy to say that the news item reported,
“Their condition was…described as comfortable.”
How often do you read that someone in the hospital is described as being “comfortable?”
Which some might claim as proof that the health care in Ireland provides superior care.
Where else would you see an IV drip with stout beer?
