America! The Beer!

I'm sure you've all heard the exciting news that InBev is renaming Budweiser to America!. What some of you may not have heard is that they've got an innovative new can coming too. For the first time ever, a manufacturer has been able to boldly leverage the synergies of cheap, flexible LCD screens, thin, disposable/recyclable batteries, and an innovative new bonding agent, to come up with the first animated GIF beer can!

Oregon Beer Snob Industries, LLC®™©☺ is proud to announce a sneak preview of the first can that will be released:

Other designs may be forthcoming, but it'll be hard to top this classic embodiment of the 'Murican spirit. Drink up, assholes!

For no particular reason whatsoever


(click for embiggenation)

I can't resist an I told you so for all the naysayers. I even won a beer bet on this -- the only good thing to come of it.

Also, too: this felt good. Futile, but good:

So, what are everybody's plans when Preznit Trump is elected? I think I'mma build a wall around my house, and make my neighbors pay for it.

Guns 'n' Ammo

I watched some of Maddow's one-on-one with HRC last night. Among a generally-quite-good exchange about guns, this bit jumped out at me at the time:

I am determined we're going to save lives and we're going to do it by taking on the gun lobby and getting common sense gun safety measures. But we're also going to do it by addressing the gun violence culture. Too many young in particular are turning to guns to settle disputes, grievances, resentments. We have got to help our young people understand guns are never an answer and there have to be other ways. And that's going to take all of us working in our schools, working through our churches and our houses of worship.

'Cept when they're the answer to every single international conflict, ever, right?

Mrs. Clinton's slightly-more-hawkish-than-Obama tendencies are one of the only things that bothers me about her being president. We're already way too deep in the world's shit, I'd rather not we keep jumping in new shitpiles every chance we get. I wish Bernie were as good at pulling her left on that as he seemingly has been on the economy.

Happy Erf 20 (two) Day

Or whatever. It's weird to see these ads in the local alt weekly. Weird, but good.
