Thanks, Tims

There's nothing that makes me smile quite the same way as listening to "Merry Ploughboy" from the latest album of The Tim Malloys and hearing the shouting drunks fill in the chorus (as noted below):

And we're off to Dublin and the Green
(FUCK THE QUEEN!)
With our helmets a'glistening in the sun
(FUCK HER SON!)
Where the bayonets slash and the rifles crash
To the echo of a Thompson gun

It isn't about the lyrics or the sentiment behind them. It's about the particular camaraderie that appears when you're with a group of drunk rowdies who all know the words.

Thanks, guys.
