BLAAAAAAAAAAARGH! I just want to share that fruit punch flavor Four Loko is possibly the worst-tasting beer-related beverage I have ever tasted. Ever. Maybe it is aimed at people who drank Robo in high school or perhaps it is just that I have never tasted sizzurp, so I don’t understand. I never take cough syrup, when I am sick either, because I loathe the flavor so much. Ew.

I hope our American readers have all necessary barbeque, beer, and fireworks plans in place. I’m going to have a chill Independence Day I think. Regular work day, followed by roof party with view of fireworks all over Hollywood.

The Two-Tailed Dog Party in Hungary is making some mighty attractive election promises:
Money without work!
There’s a 93 percent chance we won’t steal.
You will be happy!
We will promise anything.
In terms of country infrastructure, the Two-Tailed Dog Party favors flooding the roads with beer on holidays, building a spaceport, erecting snow mountains for skiers on flat plains, roller coasters arching over major cities, and existential express buses to nowhere which don’t make any stops. Also more techno music in parliament and free Burn energy drinks.
No word on whether Burn is an official sponsor of the political guerrilla street art the TTDP is doing, but they should certainly consider it. I don’t think we get Burn in the US. Any European readers want to share what it is like?
It might not be fun to be living Hungarian politics. Gergely Kovacs, chairman of the Two-Tailed Dog Party, says, “We just elect these people to represent the gangsters and the rich. This kind of democracy is ridiculous.” I’m just really impressed by such an entertaining and viral way of getting a political message . . .

I’m still not sure whether the Hello Kitty Beer was an actual Sanrio product. I’m thinking someone I know would have brought some to a party if it were. However, it is absolutely confirmed that there will now be a whole line of Hello Kitty wines.
Not whines like, “I really want the citrine Hello Kitty diamond ring” or “I really have to have advance access to Capcom’s Monster Hunter Diary: Poka Poka Felyne Village featuring Hello Kitty“. I mean wines, with no H, but with, like, ya know, booze and stuff. I admit that I am not a wine aficionado. It seems out of character, I know, but I prefer beer (or honestly sparkling water.) I’m a total foodie, but I have a middle-brow taste in champagne (Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sac and Moet White Star, thanks for asking.) and I treat wine pretty much like parsley i.e. a garnish I occasionally enjoy something cooked in but would never consume on its own.</p>
Nonetheless, I think a bottle of Hello Kitty Wine would make a pretty bitchin’ party item or housewarming gift. MWC is distributing an assortment of Hello Kitty wine too, so you’ll have what to choose from. Maybe I’d even enjoy the Hello Kitty Brut Rose.
Usually the sorts of brands people passionately fall in love with are also the sort they then have pissy break-ups with (i.e. Starbucks), but Sanrio . . .

It has been reported far and wide that the most recent Hello Kitty license deal is with Beck’s Beer. Now Hello Kitty puts their cute characters on a remarkable variety of products. The Hello Kitty vibrator jumps to a lot of pervy minds, but you can also get everything from a Hello Kitty umbrella to an embossed Hello Kitty soup pot to boil your ramen in. So it is plausible that there would also be a Hello Kitty brand beer deal. Beck’s is not my favorite beer, but it is decent and I favor the pilsner of the various Beck’s brews.
Unfortunately there appears to be some evidence that Blingee or a similar online design service was used to mock up art for what appears to be a six plus one of Hello Kitty Beck’s beer. Which is too bad as Hello Kitty branded booze might make an entertaining party favor.
Anybody have any idea whether Hello Kitty beer is a fictional fantasy or an actually available Sanrio item for . . .
