    Whenever my family went on holiday to Dartmoor when I was little, parents would always take us to church at Buckfast Abbey if we were there on a Sunday.

    Always thought it was just for the nice architecture and the gardens, but maybe they had another motive…

      But they were all of them deceived, for another motive was had. In the land of Dartmoor, in the rains of Buckfast Abbey, the Dark Monks forged in secret a Tonic Wine. And into this Wine they poured their cruelty, their malice and their will to dominate all life.

    This is super old but seems to be making the rounds again, received it on WhatsApp twice in the past few days - what causes something to come back like that?

    Good ol lurgan champagne. My da used to drink the stuff for years, funnily enough he was from around the lurgan area. He can’t touch the stuff now, mind.

    Sounds like less boozy Jägermeister (also made by monks) with added caffeine.

    Had always assumed it would be fizzy.
