The Cardinals made it to the Super Bowl. A commercial airliner made a better [crash] landing on the Hudson River than they do under normal conditions on land. The largest underwater press conference of all time occurred with 61 journalists. Wait… What?
2009 has just begun and it’s already off to a crazy start with a failing economy, Michael Vick still in jail, and an executive branch for our government that 10 years ago nobody would have fathomed. With craziness all around me, I was feeling a little ballsy last night and I puffed out my bird chest and marched right into Walmart and grabbed a 24 ounce can of Chelada. What is Chelada you ask? It’s Bud Light mixed with Clamato, which is tomato juice and reconstituted clam broth. Wait…What?
As it turns out, it’s a very popular Mexican drink with many different variations to it, each just as bad, or more so, than the next. Effectively what Anheuser-Busch has done is taken the three things I hate most; Bud Light (I kid, I kid.), tomato juice, and reconstituted clam broth, and thrown them together. But don’t worry, there is a dash of salt and lime which brings the whole ensemble together “nicely”.
It poured a bright pink and the nose was very lively and smelled of…well, watered down V8 and clams. It took me a few tries to muster up the strength to get a good whiff as I kept gagging. Then I tried it. It had an obvious seafood-ish taste with watered down tomato on the end and was very carbonated. What about the Bud Light you may ask? It doesn’t have any flavor anyways – would you expect to taste it over tomato juice and reconstituted clam broth?
After the tasting, it was game over. I made some other people try it and laughed at them, but ultimately it ended up in the toilet looking like someone had just performed a water birthing. My next mission is to get Wine Mutineer Alan Kropf to try some. We’ll see.
