I thought a little humour might light the mood a bit.  "Johnny Vegas" is/was a potter under his real name of Michael Pennington.  Extremely talented fellow, but got bad marks  due to his choice of subject matter.  He then got into comedy.

 

I hope you guys enjoy. HIs 60 second teapot.

 

 

 A version of this pot is in the Victoria and Albert: http://collections.v...t-vegas-johnny/

 

There's another video of him "potting" on stage, but it's perhaps a little too graphic (he does something colourful with a tall centred lump of clay and some beer) for sharing on a public forum.

That was pretty great. And finally, a use for Coors Lite!

Great! and it poured!

I can see next we'll have a thread on throwing with beer.

Well Marcia, to me, beer is just a glorified, carbonated vinegar, so adding a bit to the throwing water, should be right up your alley...

Ben beat me to it- I was going to suggest you use it for your "Fermented liquid" next time ;)

YOu obviously haven't tasted Coopers, this is such a waste, though it was Lite!

Oh yes, Babs is so right about Coopers ... the best beer ever and you can only get the real deal in Australia ... A great reason to visit that wonderful country.

 I think we found a good use for Blatz and Milwaukee's best. ;)
