Getting Riced on Chhaang

If the Yeti was going to step out of seclusion and make a little coin endorsing some hooch, it’d likely be chhaang.  It’s a mountain-man good times and ceremonies kind of beverage from the Himalayas and one of the mighty drinks to claim the title Nectar of the Gods.  Even the recipe is kind of mystical, yet casual, basically amounting to showing off some rice and then letting it hang out and think deep thoughts in a bottle.  Via Momo Tours: 1. Cook 5 kgs. Rice 2. Spread cooked rice on large sheet 3. Take off clothing and roll around on it 4. Wait till rice becomes room temp 5. Take 3 pieces of tibbo yeast and crush 6.

Schlitz: A Brief History of Cheap Beer

Jesus Grassdancin' Christ, Obama… Bud Light?

Alright, I knew what I was getting into, not going to pretend I didn’t.  Obama’s a politician and you don’t get further than your front door in politics if you don’t have a healthy dose of the Zelig in you.  Some of the backslapper, the faux everyman, the telegenic blank slate that talks pretty and says little.  But c’mon… CBS says that for his cop and proffessor ‘hey let’s talk about racial profiling bay-bee’ beer session Obama’s choosing Bud Light. This is intolerable.  Are they playing beer pong?  Is that why he’s going for watery domestic? I don’t know about you, but I like my elected representatives to be smarter than me, with better taste. I remain too indignant to say anything useful about the Fourth Amendment or the numerous descendents of Niall.
