The Michelob Amberbock is a good beer, but this commercial is better.

This print ad below was for Jamieson’s Raspberry Ale in Australia. Disney didn’t like it much, so the ad campaign was suspended.
From the Telegraph here:
The x-rated advertisement, for Jamieson’s Raspberry Ale, depicts the fairytale heroine blowing smoke rings while lying in bed with seven semi-clad dwarves.
In this Disney dystopia, Snow White has been renamed “Ho White”, while the loveable dwarves Sleepy, Happy and Doc are rebranded Filthy, Smarmy and Randy – supposedly to represent different types of drinkers.
The idea was to convince Australian drinkers that the fruit-flavoured beer was “anything but sweet”.
However, the advertisement has reportedly angered Disney, the entertainment giant which licenses Snow White.
Here is another photo of the characters to help you know who’s who.

I would love to try one of these new Pepsi products with real sugar in it. Whether this is in response to the whackjobs that think High Fructose Corn Syrup is bad for you or if that ingredient is just too expensive, or if it just tastes better, I’m not sure which. But I like the marketing and will certainly try the product. Check out more here.

I’m down in Orlando for a couple of days and thought this drink was epic! It has Pepar vodka, horseradish, tomato juice and is garnished with a cherry tomato and two shrimp. Yum!

I stumbled across this PartyBike site on the net and thought it would be perfect here. Its a rolling Oktoberfest complete with beer keg, bartender and German Festhaus music, but you gotta pedal to make it go.

Not the best result, but the technique is good in theory.

I stumbled across this travesty on the Internet and thought I’d share. I think clowns are offensive, and in fact, I think if McDonald’s dropped the clown mascot the restaurant chain might be more appealing to adults. But dressing up a baby in clown makeup, even as a photoshop project is freaky, offensive and kinda sick. Of course, this is a Japanese ad.

I really can’t blame this kid, and I like the way he thinks. He is clear-headed and decisive about his bacon.

McDonald’s Restaurants in Morocco have introduced the “McArabia” which is a sandwich with cumin spiced ground beef served on a flatbread pita-style pocket.
From GlobalPost here:
Walk into a McDonald’s in Morocco and you’ll find a sandwich you can’t get anywhere else in the world: a cumin-spiced flatbread creation called the McArabia Tagine.
The McArabia was launched across the Middle East in 2003, but this year the 23 McDonald’s franchises in Morocco further localized the recipe by tweaking the seasoning and sauce.
“Honestly it tastes Moroccan,” said Noor El Ghoumari, 34, a man who had just paid 53 dirhams, or about $6.60, for a meal with one of the ground beef sandwiches in Rabat on a recent afternoon.

My wife cooked up this basket of Candied Cupcake Pops for my pal’s birthday. They were a big hit! Thanks to Bakerella for the recipe.

After 77 years of pouring beer and tending bar, Angelo Cammarata is quitting.
From the PostGazette here:
Angelo Cammarata, whom the Guinness Book of World Records recognized as the world’s longest-serving bartender, is coming up on last call.
At least at Cammarata’s Cafe, the West View watering hole where he’s been pouring for most of his 77 years of tending bar.
“Camm,” as people call him, started serving beer at his father’s North Side grocery the moment Prohibition ended at midnight on April 7, 1933. The memory is as clear to him as the strike of the library clock that signaled it was time to start opening bottles of Fort Pitt.
Way to go Angelo. You’ve undoubtedly made a lot of Joes very happy over the years.

Leave it to the King to be so helpful to let it’s patrons know which soda flavor tastes best with which whopper burger. Alas I realize I have been doing it all wrong up til now.

Sad Day. Jimmy Bedford, the former Master Distiller of Jack Daniels died at age 69. From MSNBC here:
Jimmy Bedford, the slender and silver-haired former master distiller of the Jack Daniel’s whiskey during a 40-year career with the company, died Friday. He was 69.
His body was found outside a barn at his farm in Lynchburg, apparently the victim of a heart attack, company officials said.
Bedford retired in March 2008 after spending 20 years as the master distiller supervising the entire operation at the 143-year-old distillery in Lynchburg, the oldest registered one in the United States. Among his duties was tasting the whiskey before it was sent to retailers.
This master craftsman will be missed.

Found this over on Fark which linked to Insanewiches.Com here. Its the Rubik’s Cube sandwich. The Rubik’s Cube has confounded us for years. Maybe the sandwich version of this puzzling brain teaser will do the same. The Rubix Cubewich contains cubes of pastrami, kielbasa, pork fat, salami, and two types of cheddar.

While listening to a LoveLine Archive file, I laughed when Adam relayed a story about how heartbroken men get when they order a delicious steak only to be told a few minutes later that it isn’t available anymore.
