BOOZESPIN: NOTE FROM THE EDITOR, is on hiatus this week, as its author celebrates having used 380 words to notify readers that 1400 words will not be used to describe the history of one libation or another. In the spirit of Sidespin or whatever, ranked below are the best BOOZESPIN: NOTES FROM THE EDITOR:

1. BOOZESPIN: NOTE FROM THE EDITOR

BOOZESPIN: NOTE FROM THE EDITOR will be back soon. It turns out Canada has all kinds of made-up holidays to account for our adorable inferiority complex. Just next month is Moose Day, followed soon after by Caribou Day, and then Elk Day. Trust me, you do not want to sit out an Elk Day celebration. So much Elk.

Salmon Day is alright, too.

At any rate, Canadians have a strict rule against using 1400 words to write about beverages during our bogus holidays. But! No such rule applies to 380-word pieces about the impending absence of 1400-word pieces about beverages, nor 800-word pieces about the impending absence of 380-word pieces about the impending absence of 1400-word pieces about beverages. The author is unclear about any rules governing 1000-word pieces about the impending absence of 800-word pieces about the impending absence of 380-word pieces about the impending absence of 1400-word pieces about beverages, but has allowed himself a 7-day investigative period. So, dear reader, though you'll have to go without another BOOZESPIN: NOTE FROM THE EDITOR this week, there may be another BOOZESPIN: NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: NOTE FROM THE EDITOR, and if the author can squeeze in a BOOZESPIN: NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: NOTE FROM THE EDITOR, he will do what he can.

Also, look for a BOOZESPIN: BOOZESPIN WILL RETURN just as soon as Boozespin is ready to return. Possibly 3 minutes before the return of Boozespin.

Cheerio!
