The old advertising slogan "Guinness is Good for You" may be true after all, according to researchers.

A pint of the black stuff a day may work as well as an aspirin to prevent heart clots that raise the risk of heart attacks.

Drinking lager does not yield the same benefits, experts from Wisconsin University told a conference in the US.

Guinness were told to stop using the slogan decades ago - and the firm still makes no health claims for the drink.

It's not "blood sausage," Cassander - it's "Black Pudding." A much more wholesome name.

And I've went 3 days without eating because I've been drinking guinness. It's probably cheaper to just eat. Guinness makes your shit really nasty.

Yeah, but it's your last, real Guinness.

And I love black pudding.  The best I had was on Lewis...nice and flaky and yummy.
