Does Guinness have hormones?

I thought this merited a new thread - went to the boat show in London today. The Guinness stand was grrreat!! Lots of mates in there etc. I then went to Pipplers of Poole and bought the most expensive torch on the planet!! This is really not like me - and I have to go again tomorrow - please god save me from the madness of the Guinness stand. Truly - are there hormones in Guinness?

I think Guinness does have hormones. It might contain oestrogen as I've seen many cases where too much of it has resulted in some right tits.

Sorry fell asleep - result of the Guinness. What I am saying is had I drunk any more I could see things going badly wrong like:
Getting argumentative and emotional
Being unable to drive and crashing the car
Having to sit down for a p**
Buying something ridiculously expensive that I did not need (like another pair of shoes)
Do you get the drift?
I have consulted with the mirror this morning and happy to report that mammaries did not appear overnight - but the Guinness did give me a scare.

Dare I have another one tonight!??

I can answer this as I used to be an expert in this subject, it's called getting pissed, it's not just Guinness, different drinks have different effects but the end result is the same, vowing not to do it again

Do not spoil a good story but interposing facts into the equation!
