To beer drinkers, it’s a criminal offense to serve them their favorite quaff after it’s been tampered with. Worst yet, if water has been added to it. The consequences of consuming the now less-than-effective-mind-altering liquid could be far reaching. Well turns out that Budweiser, the king of beers, is being sued for doing just that.
Consider this. You are at the bar drinking beers like it’s going out of style. After about a dozen or so, you consider yourself sufficiently inebriated to make a move on the girl you have been eyeing up all night. You stumble over because that what drunks do. She turns you down cold! And you are embarrassed. You shouldn’t be! What the heck? You should be laughing in her face! Isn’t that the whole idea of getting sloshed? You walk back red-faced but sober to your corner, pick up your beer and look at it suspiciously. “Something’s just not right here…”
What happened is that you took your liquid courage and because it was watered down, it didn’t do what it was supposed to do. Now you can’t be a jackass and blame it on the alcohol. You cannot have what you presumed was ‘fun’. You feel naked without your ‘beer glasses’. It’s time to sue those cheating, lying bastards for false advertising. Apparently, it is also a violation of consumer protection laws. I mean they might say they were protecting you by lowering the content but what good ambulance chaser would let them get away with that? They get away with this and next thing you know, less nicotine in our cigarettes or less salt on our fries?
Now my question is, if you were sober when you thought you were drunk, do you still pretend you are drunk or do you keep drinking until you get drunk?
