Thanks But No Thanks.

I still have my copy of Dr. Seuss’ Sleep Book, which my dad read to me every night when I was a little girl.  It’s no Cat in the Hat; it’s a thousand times better because it’s funny and soothing and full of relatable anecdotes about that most universal of experiences: sleep.  I always felt a little bad, though, for the tired salesmen in the book who were passed out on the roadside from a hard day on their feet “trying to sell Zizzer-Zoof Seeds, which nobody wants because nobody needs.”

I’ve found my new Zizzer-Zoof Seeds in Bud Light Lime.  Who asked for this shit anyway?

    Plez to quite ripping off my beloved Corona and lime. Maybe this will stop since Budweiser is now owned by someone/something in Europe now!!

    Someone has to stop this artificial lime madness. It was bad enough when they put Pledge into Coke and tried to pass it off as a refreshing citrus beverage, and even worse when they added faux-lime flavor to Tostitos, but this just takes it too far. Is it really that bloody hard to cut up a lime and stick it in your beer? Or if you’re that desperate, to buy a .79 jug o’ lime juice and stick a few drops in? Come on, dudes. This is madness. This bottle should have Gawker’s “Shut Up, College” tag written all over it.

    You know what’s really bad? Is that this was last seen at my mother’s house, here in CA, where lemons and limes are in abundance. WRONGFUL.

    Note: Whenever I ask my mother whether or not I can bring anything when I visit, she always answers – somewhat loftily – “whatever you’d like to drink.” A hint, perhaps?

    I like weird, artificially flavored thing, but even this looks like shit to me. Mainly because it’s bud and bud is like a bottled hangover, to me.

    I won’t say, though, that the billboards for prickly pear or raspberry beer are intriguing, even if they’re from a major beer factory that’s going to make shitty beer.

    And not to be outdone, Miller has also created their own lime flavored abomination, Miller Chill. Do. Not. Want.
