Quinn + Tonik Vol. 15: Christmas Eve Edition


the king james bible

This tome needs no introduction and many of us claim to have read it. Either whilst being flogged by nuns who would give the Blues Brother's "Penguin" a run for her money or under the tutelage of a bearded theology professor. We may even have heard of it as the mystical centerpiece of Denzel Washington's struggle in, "The Book of Eli." But if we are honest, few of us have studied it properly.
Have a go. For it's tough to judge something you've never actually read.
For a more enlightening explanation of what King James has to do with it, perhaps have a read of the erudite Mr. Hitchens in Vanity Fair.
And as a wag who was my father's right hand man at Burns Night used to say, "Never trust a man with a Gideon Bible."*
* The Society of Gideons place free Bibles in hotels. Thus, anyone in possession of one outside of their hotel room is, by definition, quite possibly a thief.

Once upon a time there were some funny chaps at Oxford and Cambridge Universities. They met whilst on tour in New York City. And soon became, "Monty Python's Flying Circus."
Enjoy their take with tongue firmly in cheek, and a New York Flip in hand (recipe below.)
Thenceforth, you will have been inducted into a group who believe these movies to be comedic (if irreverent) genius.

DQ has always been a journey of passion. Fueled by an irrational belief that success could be achieved in something you have to be an idiot to choose as a career. Through the thick and thin of initially explaining to journalists what "Bespoke" meant, to weathering the storms [...]

St Valentine's Day is nearly upon us. We've waxed lyrical before about its origins in drunken orgies, and sacrificial offerings of dogs, goats, and a bloke called Valentine. But aside from its religious connotations, we all know it is the one day of the year your other half will hang [...]
