loggerheads » lagerheads

Classification: English

Spotted in the wild:

  • Molson and Labatt are at lagerheads again and if it isn’t resolved soon, the city could lose the Memorial Cup. (Ottawa Sun, "Trouble brewing for Memorial Cup host?", February 4, 2005)
  • Jamie Lee Hamilton spoke next who read a poem devoted to Cassandra written by a Downtown Eastside poet. She then invited Cindy Chan Piper of the Grandview Woodlands Neighbourhood Action Group (residents’ group that aims to move the hookers out of the east end) to stand beside her and spoke about how her and Cindy are often at lagerheads, but we all have to work together.

  • Egypt and Sudan at lagerheads over territorial rights to Halaib, prompted by Sudan granting oil exploration concession. Each accuses the other of harbouring opposition elements. (link)

Analyzed or reported by:

Conflict can easily arise from indulging in too much beer. Whether there are actual loggerheads involved or not.

    I believe the first example you cite is probably a pun. Since Molson and Labatt are both brewers, they both are purveyors of lagers, hence the funny verbal playfulness.

    That’s just a guess, though. They could all be Canadian rubes.
