    In today's vernacular, that maneuver is referred to as teabagging.

    This sunday you don't get a ticket for admittance, they just shove a spear in your side. That's your ticket. But some mofo named "Thomas" is the one who's going to be checking at the gate, so you may want to have some other sort of proof...

    I couldnt believe I got there and they were still selling tickets. I got the tweet at about 1030 and drove from chicago and made it in time to get some.

    That's actually probably from my friend's wife (aka mule). He's tried for years to get her to drink good beer, he homebrews, but she insists on drinking Miller Lite. He's finally given up. She was there on DLD last week drinking Miller Lite in line with us.

    Hello everyone. I've been a lurker but decided to join the forums. This will be my fourth DLD this year. Since folks are sharing "don't be that guy pics" I thought I'd post one of my own that I snapped at DLD 2011. I walked past this guy and couldn't resist the photo op.

    I hope his DL didn't get stolen. He was passed out cold.

    Dark Lord. I am my god fearing parents worst nightmare. I'd spend three days in Munster before another two hours in church.

    Not sure if you want to open this can of worms or not (do we really need another DLD thread shut down?), but I'm a pastor and will be conducting six services in the next five days.

    I worship Jesus, but I drink still Dark Lord.

    Do you have to leave the spear in your side between now and DLD for entry?

    Is the spear transferrable?

    No, they write your name on the spear. Luckily my parents are from south of the border and named me hey-zeus.

    I just had my reservation at the Hampton for 4/26-4/27 cancelled. I ran a trace with the company and they said that it was not done by them but occurred via the internet. No one else has any access to my email account or other accounts to be able to do this. I have changed my passwords on things in the event of a hack, but who the hell cancels someone's hotel reservation out of malice? Has anyone else had this happen?

    my buddy and I will be driving from louisiana to munster for Dark Lord Day this year. It'll be our first time up that way so I was wondering if y'all could recommend any bottle shops along I-57. Thanks for the help :slight_smile:

    That's what makes internet discussions challenging, especially with folks you don't know. Hansgruber asked what I took to be a semi-serious question. Aasher gave one answer and I gave another, no big deal. Anyways, I won't derail this thread any more.

    Back to the topic, I will be at DLD for the second time this year, and hope to meet more BAs in person, no matter what they believe. I'll be the one with the beard and a brewery t-shirt:wink:

    That's what I like to hear!

    I know it's a sea of people, but I'll have a big-assed nametag (no beard...might make things marginally easier) on and probably spend the majority of my day near the tasting tables or guest-pour tent. If you happen to spot me I'll gladly pour you whatever I've got open.

    That's not a half-bad idea. I might steal that if you don't mind :wink:. Although very 10-year-high-school-reunion-ish name tags with you BA handle on them wouldn't be the worst thing to happen to DLD. It's hard to find someone you've never met when their description is "come find me, I'm the heavier set guy with a beard wearing a brewery shirt and/or hat." Thanks, that narrows it down to about 5000 people.
