I might have started a small 'uprising' . . .

Well not really an uprising, more of a 'bad memory' fest! I was shopping at Trader Joe's with Francesca last night when I overheard two of the employees talking about how they found a DOLLAR and were gonna use said buck to buy two cans of beer from TJ's! Since I knew them, I just said it kinda sounded like the old Alpha Beta store brand simply labeled 'Beer'! This brought ANOTHER employee into the conversation bringing up Cisco! Not to be outdone, I heard someone mention King Cobra Malt Liquor! Not to be deterred, someone ELSE remembered the old days of NIGHT TRAIN! (lot's of groans of past hangovers. I beleive the 'coup de grace' was when I innocently talked about MAD DOG 20/20! There was an even LOUDER groan (mixed with laughter) at THAT old drink, along with the 'never heard of that', from the younger of the now LARGISH crowd around the '10 items or less' line'!

I had to leave, Francesca was patiently waiting, but when I left, I thought I overheard inquiries of where one might still PURCHASE some of the mentioned items! Oh LORD, I hope I didn't start a HUGE backwards leap to the drinks of old!!!!

I got news for you - For the price of that TJ Swan Gutter Wine or Mad Dog or what have you, they can get a rock of crack, a serious heroin fix, meth or just about anything else they want. Kids today aren't into the drink when so much more potent shit is available so cheap. Then you've got your Oxycontin and so many other scrips....

No, starting up another legion of drunks would take a whole lot more than that.

I was in the grocery store the other day and saw a bottle of MD 20/20 sitting on the shelf. I didn't think they even MADE that anymore but it brought back lots of memories of choking that crap down (it was almost like syrup it was soo sweet!!)...UGH!!

OH GOD I must be gettin old too cuz I have heard of ALL those but MAD DOG was a MO-FO!!! that there gave me my FIRST REAL experience with liquor!!! I had my first puke fest and hangover the next day! and it was either the "red" or "orange" flavor! I was 18 I think, and ever since then I VOWED NEVER to EVER drink that much cuz I hated that feeling of sickness!! I could NEVER be an alcoholic, man, that feeling SUCKS!!!

and conana, you have to go to the ghetto "licker stow" to find those now!

Haha. There's a "licker stow" about a mile or so from my house. I should pop in there one night and see if I can find any of those.

Old Grandad was another one.

Ever had Hamms beer? OMG! ...

Ever had Hamms beer? OMG! We were happy to have anything for so cheap; I think it was about $1.58 for a six pack. Then you found out WHY it cost so little.

Red White and Blue was the same way, one RANK excuse for a brew. We weren't picky back then by any means but Billy Beer (Billy Carter, President Jimmy Carter's brother) was sick and Red White and Blue was sicker... but Hamms ... don't get me started on Hamms. Take my word for it - you really Don't Want To know...

Papts Blue Ribbon.

Papts Blue Ribbon.

Pabts Blue ...

Pabts Blue Ribbon...Braumeister...Hamms....Schlitz...Milwaukee's Best (yeah right!!)..but when were in college...hell..anything cheap to get drunk on fit the bill!! We once got drunk on a cheap wine called, "Jacobazi" and THAT was one bad hangover too!! But I'll tell ya..the drunkest I ever got when I was a kid was on Yukon Jack and lemonade!! Puked my guts out and I'll tell ya..to this day I can't stand the smell of the stuff!!

OMG Billy Beer you are not going to believe this but last time I was in Maine my brother in law still had a six pack unopened of that stuff.

Ah PBR, god I love PBR! Up here there's a bar that when you order a PBR they ring a bell. You order three, they ring three times. It's their cheapest beer, and you get a bell ring for every one ordered!
