5 to 10 servings of elixir vegetal a day'll do that to ya

this is the good ship theodore too. it does edutaining harbour tours for 20 bucks a pop. the first time i saw it i thought i was seeing things because 'theodore' is from some kid's show i vaguely remember watching; now it just kinda disturbs me that there's a reason for having a perpetually smiling ship with blinking eyes (hydraulic-powered eyelids...) in the first place.

alexander keith's is to nova scotians what guinness is to the irish. it's also owned by mega-brewer labatt. this insignificant detail is not mentioned anywhere on the official keith's page except for the small-print legal stuff that you get to by clicking on the "privacy policy" link -- & we all know it's only nader-worshipping 'consumer advocates' who read that stuff.
ever since the merger of oh-so-canadian brewer molson to neo-nazi owned coors [i'm not saying this only because the founder's name is adolph -- check out their pro-diversity propaganda pamphlet for something that's too freaky to be happening in the 21st century] earlier this year, i've been noticing more & more that regardless of all the 'choices' we have, the money still goes to the same few bloated suits in the end.
incidentally, guinness is owned by diageo, which also owns tanqueray, smirnoff, cuervo, & a whole bunch of other famous brands. but at least guinness owns up to its selling out: you can easily navigate to diageo's site straight from their main page.
support the underdog: drink chartreuse.
