Getting Ready for July 4th, 2009

Next year Babyluv and I will be hosting a July 4th bbq with hotdogs, burgers, firecrackers, and beer.

In fact, she'll be drinking with me.

Relax.. there's a new product on the market (at least in Japan) called Kidsbeer. There's an article on it titled: Kidsbeer proves hit suds for minors.

According to the article, Kidsbeer, a nonalcoholic brew aimed at children, is catching on with young drinkers and is posting monthly shipments of 75,000 bottles, according to maker Tomomasu Co.

It goes on to say "kids and other people "can raise a glass with this, even if they cannot drink any liquor." Satoshi Tomoda, president of the beverage maker, said: "Children copy and mimic adults. "If you get this drink ready on such occasions as events and celebrations attended by kids, it would make the occasions even more entertaining." The Kidsbeer label captures a nostalgic mood as it was modeled after classic beer labels.

The best part and the truth is the product's advertising slogan: Even kids cannot stand life unless they have a drink.

I get weepy as a proud momma picturing Babyluv saying "Damned Straight" to that.

OMG you are too funny. Where do you find these things?

Kelli said...

Damned straight- now where did I put those candy cigarettes?

Susan said...

I sooo wanna get a look at your homestudy!

Nancy said...

Oh no they didn't!

Tanya said...

OMG!!! ha ha

Barbara said...

Didn't the candy cigarettes get pulled? Anyway, I guess if you can buy non-alcoholic beer, thus advertising your (former) addiction to the world, I guess you can give it to your kids in the hopes they grow into it??? wow, who comes up with this stuff.

NICE! I think you should jump on the bandwagon and develop a sparkling milk beverage for the kids. Perfect for New Year's.

I was also wondering about the candy cigarettes. I used to love those things.
