    I am sure I can remember my Father making sloe gin cocktails years ago.
    Nooooo - sloes are small spherical dark purple berries with a pale blue bloom on the skin. No resemblance to a rose hip that's red and full of itchy buds.

    I ate a sloe once outside Liskeard in the 1980s to see whether it was a sloe. It was a sloe. I have to drink a glass of water every time I remember doing it.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I drank a Sloe Gin Fizz, once. Wasn't at all impressed.
