Somehow I can't imagine the unruly band being dissuaded from singing
the praises of Guinness, etc. due to either the inclusion or exclusion of
vendors of e.g. that Budweiser p***.
As for tobacco products, I don't remember the topic having come up
in the last year or so. And I believe the closest we've come to discussing
porn was when someone provided the name of a street corner in the thread
about buttered cats and pickups (unless, of course, he was really giving out
the address of a used truck lot).
