AB Gives Up on Bud Lite
This was definitely a major blow to Tranheuser-Busch, but it's such a massive company. It even owns an interest (whatever that means) in the new number one beer in the United States: Modelo Especial. So it'll be fine. I even thought about buying its stock when it dropped 15%, but I just couldn't.
The bigger issue is how the wokeness has infiltrated the major corporations, to the extent of becoming completely deaf to the average American consumer. I wish I could crawl into the sinews of those major corporations and see the leftism at work in everyday office life.
I mean, in a sane corporate culture, the whole fiasco would've been avoided. Sample dialogue:
Alissa Heinerscheid: "Let's launch a campaign that features a transexual influencer."
No-Nonsense Executive: "GTF out of my office."
"Drink This! It's Made from Wastewater!"
You'd think the corporation would cover up this fact, but in these topsy-turvy days . . . .
Move Over, Rum and Coke?
I've had both and, even though I favor Pepsi in the cola wars, rum and Pepsi isn't very good.
Making Hunter Thompson Wish He Hadn't Killed Himself
This solid biography about Hunter Thompson (written by a friend who tries to be honest about Hunter's, ahem, shortcomings, but also strives to paint as good a picture as possible . . . no easy task) contains, I'm guessing, at least ten references to Thompson drinking Wild Turkey.
Vodka and Red Bull Makes You Violent
Well, perhaps, but it is one of the best simple cocktails out there. Vodka and Red Bull blend as well as gin and tonic. If they could only make a caffeine-free version of it so I didn't have to limit myself to one, but I suppose that'd be like making a nudity-free pornographic movie.
