I'd like a can of stupid and a lager ice pop, please

12 August 2010

Bitterwallet - beer popsicle The summer of August 2010 has seen little need to seek out increasingly extreme ways to battle heat exhaustion - the fact is it's pissed down for the past fortnight, and it looks set to continue. Regardless, even if books were spontaneously combusting all around us, this would still be an extremely dickish way to keep cool.

It's a hopsicle - a lager ice pop being served up by a bar in New York City. Syrup and lime juice are poured into a can of lager (or what the Americans insist on calling beer), and a wooden stick is stood upright in the can. The concoction is then tucked away in the freezer for four days. Once the mixture is suitably solid, the can is sawn in half with a steak knife and presto! Surely an impressively stupid way to slice your tongue in half on a serrated can edge?

It beats our plan to gut a dwarf and fill the carcass with ice and Bailey's, but only just.

    American 'beer' is basically just soda water anyway, so this is just going to be a watery ice lolly.

    I can hear the lawyers rubbing their grubby paws together already in anticipation of the lawsuits for slashed tongues & lips.

    I like it. I'll invest £1.25 for 50%, if Theo Pathetis joins me. Also fuck off Bannantyne!!
  • Jimbo
    yes welcome to the 'world' of america.. where they solve everything (including this potential lager ice pop 'accident') with lawyers, guns, therapists.

    The word is 'sawn'. There is no such word as 'sawed', unless you are a chav.
  • Wibble
    (not in this context, anyway). Anyway, by the way, does not have an S on the end....EVER.
  • Paul S.
    Sawed is US, sawn is UK. Apologies for the inconvenience. Refunds are available at the kiosk.
  • Stu
    Its a US story so I'll allow it.
  • klingelton
    the abbreviation SORN is also not available if your a chav (you'll still drive it despite having no tax or MOT)
  • james d.
    no such word as sawed ey. So you would say "I sawn the tree down yesterday" Or "The carpenter sawn the beam in two." No, you bloody wouldn't.
  • Wonky H.
    fucking hell, it's gettting like Boing Boing down here. See what happens when I don't pop along! Next you will be complaining about desert islands are really deserted islands.
  • Wonky H.
    I, of course, would rather have a dessert island. And I would fill it up with McVities biscuits. (Not foxs, DONT MENTION FOXS)

What do you think?
