Jim Beam Talkin' Smack

Oh snap.

I'm flipping through the latest Rolling Stone and come across THIS: 

Oh no they di'nt.

 You can imagine my outrage, as mojitos are my beverage of choice for the months of March-September.


BG's too:



Don't be hatin' on my mojitos, son.








Duly ruffled, I  go to Wikipedia do some extensive Lewis & Clark research and I see THIS: 









Really, Jim Beam? These are your bourbon-swiggin' bad asses? Turtleneck-boy and Froofy-scarf with the Donald Trump comb-over?

Jonas Brothers scarf-wearin' - Hair Club for Men-joinin'- puffy face water-retainin' fancyboys?

Also? I learned that the Lewis and Clark expedition (and I quote:) "was only the second 'official' transcontinental crossing of North America north of Mexico by a person not of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, having been preceded to the Pacific coast (on July 20, 1793) by a Canadian expedition led by explorer Sir Alexander Mackenzie."

In other words, the Indians had already done it, as well as a Cannuck named Mackenzie. Who was toting Molsons, no doubt.

Don't disrespect the mojito before you do your homework, Jim Beam: that's a lotta smack talkin' for a liquor that's the main ingredient in Mint Juleps.

In fact, I've had several (several = 8 at this point). Sure my typing is slower, but I was first and most likely second. Jim Beam = pass. Mojitos = pass. But, to each their own.

Hilarious chickie. I'm not known to be a big drinker but I like me a good mojito! Way to do your research - it makes your outrage very well-rounded. I like that. Well-rounded outrage.

I really think BG needs to lay off the mojitos already; it's January. Homie needs to sober up and put on a hoodie. :)

How dare they disrespect the mojito!!

cw2smom said...

Tooo funny! Yeah....so there you sissy mint julep makin' smack talkers! I am going to have to try a mojito one of these days, cause I've seriously been one to drink all those other foo-foo drinks like Pina Coladas and Tequila Sunrise! I take it a Mojito is NOT a foo-foo drink! Um, right? LOL! Lisa

Which is, BTW, exactly the same as a mojito but it uses bourbon instead of rum. I should know, I live in the South and I'm married to a Cuban and inbibe both (depends what we have more of at the time-rum or bourbon).

Rachel said...

Love me some mojitos!

michelle said...

Mmmmm.....Mojitos.... Now I have to try and focus all day on work? So not fair. Try the Asian Pear Mojito at PF Changs next time you are there. Yummy!

Allikaye's Mama said...

Tenakim said...

Former Fat Chick said...

I bet the NATIVES drank Mojitos on theie expedition! hahaha, I will tell you who drink Jim Beam, a bunch of people where I live (Florida) some toothless, most with facial hair, and 2/3 wear trucker caps...just sayin...

Ali said...

I think Jim is showing his insecurities by going on the attack like that! Calm down, JB!

Lisa-licious said...

"DON'T DRINK AND PADDLE", I always say! (open to interpretation, I am sure, but meant as a canoe reference!)

And is it my imagination, or does the guy on the right (Lewis or Clark?) look a bit like the actor James Spader?

Susan in the Psych Ward said...

That's ok, it's raining here so much I'm off to buy a canoe and I'll be drinking a mojito whole paddling.... how's that????
