THERE’S A LOT of stuff happening today between the Royal Visit and the England game. It’s a lot to deal with for any Irish person.
To add to our woes someone has only gone and ordered a Guinness and Sprite at a bar in Seattle and basically destroyed our national drink and our faith in humanity.
Someone next to me at this Seattle soccer bar just ordered a Guinness and Sprite, and WTF, is this a thing? pic.twitter.com/MV7F8G46Co— Ross Maghielse (@Maghielse) July 10, 2018
We have a few questions about this. Firstly why does this look like a magic trick and how is the Guinness lighter than the Sprite? Secondly why on earth would you order this? Thirdly, WHO HURT YOU?
Despite the concerning appearance of the drink, Twitter user Ross did oblige and taste it for all of us. How did it taste? According to Ross the answer is not good.
Update: as an adult, I asked a complete stranger “can a try a sip” of your dumb drink. He obliged. It taste like I licked a Manhattan sidewalk a day after a nor’easter. I did this for ya’ll.— Ross Maghielse (@Maghielse) July 10, 2018
Ross also asked the important question which is of course, is this a thing? The correct answer, of course, is NO IT IS NOT.
When Ross asked the purchaser of the drink where the concoction came from, the reply wasn’t something we were expecting.

I’m considering sending a note to the newsroom-wide @guardian email address demanding a fact check and accountability.
*Insert your own Brits out joke here*
No, but seriously, has anyone ever heard of this drink? Why does it exist? Who do we report this crime to?
The people want answers.
This is an actual war crime— Dawn Foster (@DawnHFoster) July 11, 2018
Not English. Or Irish. Just wrong. I don't think they would make it for you in a pub if you asked. Just on principle.— The Good Professor (@drgeep) July 11, 2018
It looks like a commercial for a drain-unblocker— Alastair Jamieson (@alastairjam) July 10, 2018
Hi, I’m a legal expert from Ireland. You are perfectly within your rights to kill them.— Deacon YES Gusset (@deacongusset) July 11, 2018
People do ridiculous things to Guinness, such as not letting it cook before they swill it, but this, this is fecking sacrilege, this is war lads pic.twitter.com/qNM4tDzdK0— Basia J Wolf Ⓥ (@BasiaJWolf) July 11, 2018
I've consulted my Irish wife and it's called a travesty— krishan (@22kchauhan) July 11, 2018
Sound the battle horns lads, we’re going to war.
