Even when it's bad, it's still pretty good. Actually that's not true at all.Poteen is like a trip to the dentists, even when it's good, it's still pretty bad . Now I come from a long line of Hacklers and the potato punch has been furtively handed around to friends and neighbours or hidden in hedges in Lucozade bottles and holy water bottles by generations of EEjits. Now, there's only one definitive test for poteen , forget the silvery cigarette paper and lighter , the spoon and the spots, here's what you do.
At night drink a whole bottle of Poteen, do that funny little dance around the brush on the floor with all the family ,when the DT's kick in, go to bed.Then when you wake up in the morning ,you will probably be blind.If the blindness is temporary, then it's good Poteen.If however you are permanently blinded and all your teeth are on the pillow,that is bad poteen. Being dead in the morning is another sign for bad Poteen.So there you have it, a definitive test for Poteen* Enjoy!
