Burgon, sour mash. Corn Whiskey.

Staring off into nothing, sipping bourbon, keeping the monotone level. I would like to spend a day talking like this in every social exchange as if there was a solemn violin theme going on behind everything I say. My Richard Burgon Day.

In a bizarre twist, however, the patrons still referred to bourbon as "burgon" for months afterwards just to keep the joke going. After a while, nobody broke into laughter, but that didn't stop them. People kept asking for "burgon" and the bartender gave them bourbon.

New patrons were puzzled, but when they saw the long-time patrons calling it "burgon" they did so as well, thinking it was some kind of code or odd tradition.

If the poor kid had walked in there a year later and asked for "burgon", he would have been given bourbon without anyone laughing.

In my mind, that is now a canonical follow-up to this anecdote.
