Seems a little over priced to me. Even with shipping to the USA I got the set for around $55 from amazon.co.uk, thanks to some very helpful forum posts on h2g2.com.

A what? My babel fish is letting me down.

However, if you are referring to a beer, then yes please. I'll have a pint of Calders Cream Ale if you have any on draught.

*receives smiley - ale with beautifully engraved h2g2 logo on the side*

Thanks.

*takes large drink, as you do with a freshly poured beer; everyone knows that 70% of a pint is consumed in the first 30% of its life*

Oooh yes. Long time since I have had one of those.

BTW, where can I purchase one of these engraved tankards.

Hey, barman, do you think I could keep this smiley - ale as a souvenir? Just let me know if you think not.

Just time for a quick liquid lunch. (Bare in mind that time is relative, and lunch time is doubly so.)

A pint of the usual please.

You know, space-time in this region of the universe has been a tad sluggish. I think the e-projection of my persona is losing resolution over the 5000 mile projection distance.

I wonder how personae from Betelgeuse manage.
