So: I'd like your opinion on a theological matter of some importance.
I know it sounds like a joke, but it isn't really.
I don't like mead. I've never met a mead I liked.
I'd rather drink bad beer than drink good mead.
I'd rather drink water than drink mead.
Hell: I'd rather drink goat piss than drink mead.
(Insofar there's any appreciable difference between the two, anyway.)
So, can I still be heathen?
