    I presume a stout english batter is a flour and egg batter using Stout beer instead of milk or water. But you don’t skull it, you just eat it surely.

    I immediately assumed he was making a dumb pun, but its entirely possible the idiot thinks the word he was looking for was “batter”. Besides, it’s “batsman” not batter, in the game of cricket.
