How "Boules" got cool

La Prière du RICARD:

The Prayer of Ricard

Our Ricard, Who art so cool,
Hallowed be Thy Bottle;
Thy will be done,
on the terrace as it is at the bar counter.
Give us this day our daily glass,
and forgive us our hangovers,
as we forgive those who drink some Casa (*);
Lead us into temptation,
and deliver us from thirst.

Amen ton verre !
(Give me your glass !)

(*) Note: Casa is a short for Casanis, another brand of Pastis
