WTF?

In an effort to revive flattening sales and attract new drinkers, Anheuser-Busch Co. Inc. is unveiling a new concoction a fruity-smelling beer, spiked with caffeine, guarana and ginseng.

The world's largest brewer said Monday its planned offering pronounced B-to-the-E, with the "E" denoting something "extra" and shown as an exponent of B should appeal to 20-something consumers looking for something zippy in their highly social, fast-paced lifestyles.

--WTF?? This is just SO wrong. Be to the E? Are you kidding me? If I ever hear a guy I know order a B to the E, they are getting smacked.

You Said

If I'm ever in a bar fight I'm going for the guy who is drinking that, I should be able to take him.

Ha! Me too--I think I could probably take him too! :)

Be to the E.

Now all the White Breads can sound "cool" and "hip".

or lame.

LOL

They should leave beer alone - it's perfect as is!

An entire marketing course will be built around this debacle in the next few years

"fruity-smelling beer." Excuse me while I puk.....

Says: Nanc' at October 5, 2004 03:46 PM

I'm so glad I prefer Miller products.

"Excuse me sir, but if you're drinking that then you're not good enough for the woman you're with. I'll take care of her for you." What's he going to do hit me??????

Sounds like another Zima.

Says: Grant at October 5, 2004 10:25 PM

Zima had ONE redeeming attribute: it looked and smelled like Sprite. A very important quality when carrying a clear plastic bottle around campus when going to class.
