Shopping with Blobby

Yet another installment in the drudgery that is everyday shopping. The camera-phone makes it a bit more fun - though I get looks whenever I take pics of products. Like I care what people think!

Beer names are becoming as numerous, and as clever (?) and funny (??) as wine ones. Of course "clever" and "funny" are relative.

Sweet Baby Jesus.

Still a few weeks ago, while doing the grocery shopping, this display made me stop and give pause.

While I thought it was hilarious, I wasn't sure how, or if, it would play in Peoria.  ....and apparently it didn't. People were offended by the name.

The man turned water in to wine {allegedly}, so you think these Puritans would be ok with beer - it has a lower alcohol content.

I didn't buy it. I'm not big on porter - and chocolate peanut butter should be reserved for ice cream anyways - not beer.

Still - it made me smile.

I love the name, but would stay away from the beer. It sounds like it would taste horrible.

I do, however, like the idea that Fearsome Beard posted.
A gag gift to make one gag.

Indeed, beer names seem to be following the creative wine names.

At least they didn't go with "Dead Baby Jesus". Or maybe that was for a stout.
