Strolling through the local Ballard Market today, looking for something sophisticated to drink with my caprese salad (I settled on a Frostie Blue Cream Soda, natch), I stumbled upon… well, this.
What is this? Who are these people? And most importantly… does it taste good?
I laughed all the way home. Everytime I think of it, and that logo, I start all over again. Anyone try this stuff?
[paraphrasing Mitch Hedberg]By the way, you don’t have to be Leninist and holding a communist view to enjoy a Leninade. You could just be a thirsty dude. Leninade forgets about this demographic. I’m thirsty for absolutely no reason. Other than the fact that liquid has not touched my lips for some time. Can I have a Leninade too, or does that Lenin head mean “No”? [/PMH]
I haven’t tried it, but I bought it as part of a selection of odd-ball sodas for the pool in our [thread=365221]office non-gambling “3-Coin Psycho-Statistical Experiemental Research Program”[/thread]. One guy who selected it–strictly on the basis of having a conversation piece for his office–said that it tasted “…sugary.” Clearly, it’s not the taste sensation of the decade, but how can you resist a bottle which so humorously depicts a brutal despot responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of people. I’m sure Stalin Soda, Mao Tse Gingko Beer, and Guevara Juice will be marketed in good time.
How was the Frostie Cream Soda, by the way? I bought two bottles but nobody has yet had the guts to try something that looks like antifreeze. The word, by the way, is that Gatorade Rain tastes, and I quote, “like ass.”
Anyway, the Leninade bottle does make a great conversation piece, especially in an office where virtually everybody holds a security clearence. Don’t even get me started about Yuri the Chekist Security Monkey.
No, we don’t use the paper shredder in the secure lab to make crushed ice for our margaritas, but I’ll take it under advisement.
