Seems a very popular tipple in Jockland, although not popular with the law. A mix of wine, sugar and caffeine. Isn't that what's in Red Bull? Don't see that getting bad press.

Reckoned to be around 6,500 cases of violence resulting in it's consumption. Apparently.

Cheers :wink:

Buckie is legendary.

To be fair, a bit like white lightning cider, stronger drinks are available but it's the association that gives it it's reputation.

Some very funny buckie memes out there.

I don't know what it's like these days, but alcohol was never necessary for a rammy when I was a lad.

It was an eye opener when I lived in England for a year. Much less spontaneous violence.

Last time I was out in Harrogate I had my boxers ripped off and thrown across the dance floor by two drunk middle aged women.
At least they had the courtesy to fondle my balls afterwards.
Never did find which table they landed on (my boxers that is, not my balls).
