better not lol….
Come on. Doesn’t that make you want to try it…just a little? 🙂 Happy Wednesday.
… is there a chance that I can try all 3 bottles before lift off to nirvana?
Wow. This brand is a lawsuit waiting to happen. Lol.
Can’t say you weren’t warned, so perhaps that means no lawsuit. 🙂 It does grab one’s attention, though.
Ha ha! No thanks 🙂
I’m not a fan of mead, too sweet for me, but if I were, I might want to try this brand just for fun. Alas, I’ll stick with dark beer or wine.
I think I agree with you on that!
Too much information!!!
Ugh. Now there’s a bar brand I wouldn’t want to get into even if everybody knew my name. Randy
But would your friends feel the same? It does grab one’s attention, though, doesn’t it, Randy, which is, I know, the point. Not a fan of mead, which is much too sweet for me.
Ordinary, light bear, please. The other two will happen anyway…
🙂 I think these people will get lots of attention and if a number of the people try their product, it’s good.
I think you are right there.
Live dangerously, I say. 😀
Another example of cross-cultural language differences, Janet. I read it as sort of “Drink mate, and die”.
“Mate” here is more likely to be spoken as a replacement for someone’s actual name, as in “come on mate, drink up” rather than as a description of any behaviour (for which we have a number of euphemisms of varying degrees of crudeness). 🙂
Su, I know “Mate” is a bit like “friend”, although I didn’t know “die” was like “drink up.” It could be similar to “die with pleasure”, I guess, but that ambiguity is part of what makes it interesting and fun. Very eye-catching, no matter how it’s read, and considering it’s a US company, a unique choice of words.
Hmm… I get that they’re going after a specific demographic here, but personally, the concept just doesn’t appeal… Kudos for trying something different though!
Definitely a photo op, though, that’s for sure, Hannah.
Totally cracked me up.
It did me, too, Lisa. I like that people can have fun with things like this, little things that make people smile.
Love the photo. And however “mate” was meant, either as a verb or as a noun meaning friend – I prefer to see it as an imperative similar to “eat, drink, and be happy”. It seems like the life cycle in its shortest form.
I thought it was fun, too, no matter what. Glad you liked it.
Fantastic wording for beer, would love to see something here in England.
