It all started when a McDonald’s in Somerville, Massachusetts began advertising two egg muffins for $5 on their billboard. Shortly thereafter, the nearby Sav-Mor liquor store put up their own billboard ad, reading “Three egg muffins for $4”. With this, an ad war began that is still raging today, and the public is the beneficiary of the hilarious results. See more after the break…
As both a Star Wars fan and a whiskey fan, I am absolutely delighted to learn of the existence of a blogger who goes by the name of Scotchtrooper.
There’s also an Instagram account with, wait for it…whiskey and Star Wars-themed photos.
This is the best thing I’ve seen all week. See more after the break…
YouTuber “Cocktail Chemistry” obviously believes that drinking a cocktail should be both a visual and a flavor experience. To achieve this end, he’s posted a video showing how to create a drink called the “Smoke Bomb”.

New York’s El Original says their 7-pound Seis De Mayo breakfast taco will handle any hangover Cinco De Mayo can throw at it.
Made with 12 eggs, 1 pound of potatoes, 1 pound of sausage, 1 pound of bacon, 1 pound of refried beans, 1 pound of mixed grilled onions and peppers, 8 oz. of pico de gallo, 8 oz. of salsa, 4 oz. of queso fresco and then topped with shredded cheese and even more bacon, this things manages to “fit” inside one 12-inch tortilla.
The Seis de Mayo costs $50 bucks, but I’m suggesting you share it with friends or you may find your hangover cured by your subsequent death by taco.
As the name suggests, the taco will be available starting tomorrow, May 6th, for all of your hangover-curing needs.
Here’s one for my wine loving geeks (and I know you’re out there!). Check out this Harley Quinn Mallet Corkscrew And Wine Charm Set.
I mean, think about it, Harley would probably be down with using her mallet to open a bottle of wine. Plus, a wine charm makes sure you know which glass is yours—just in case you want to, I dunno, poison someone? Not really, but you know what I mean.

While this is just a basic description, the video below provides all the details… and the explosions.

One of the best things in the recent Lootcrate Firefly Crate was a little 4-pack of paper drink umbrellas based on Kaylee’s parasol. I didn’t want to use them because I only had four, but QMx has solved that problem.
They’ve released the new Kaylee Parasol drink umbrellas in packs of 30, so you can have a Firefly shindig and make sure everyone gets one.
How shiny is that?

On February 23rd, undercover agents from the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control went to see Deadpool at the Brewvies theater and bought beer. Now Brewvie’s is facing fines and the potential loss of their liquor license because of a Utah obscenity law prohibiting the sale of alcohol in the same place where nudity or sex acts can be viewed.
Apparently, an R-rated movie qualifies. I mean, c’mon.
Brewvies has decided to fight back, declaring that the law itself is unconstitutional. In order to fund the legal action, they’ve set up a Go Fund Me page to cover the cost of legal fees and fines.
Ryan Reynolds heard about Brewvie’s plight and it appears that he may have donated to the cause himself. He also had something to say about it.
