Now You Can Suck on Beer With These Flavored Lollipops


Once you hit a certain age, lollipops feel like the sort of treat you’re not allowed to have anymore cuz licking foods in public will often cause creeps to shout things at you. Well, those people can suck it.

Beer-flavored lollipops exist now!


“People have been asking us to make beer lollipops for years,” Lollyphile owner Jason Darling said in a recent press release. “Every time we tried one out, though, it felt too generic. So we decided to specialize.”


And specialize they did. Rather than create one boring flavor that tastes not entirely unlike beer, the experimental lollipop company has instead announced the arrival of three separate ones: lager, stout, and IPA. Darling explains further:

We tried our best to stay true to each of these varieties, Stout being big & dark, IPA being hoppy as hell, and Lager based on our favorite Pilsner. It was, to say the least, a very fun flavor matching experience. We came out of the whole process with a whole new appreciation for the subleties of beer. And also with the beginnings of beer bellies.


Of course, this is not the first set of alcohol-flavored lollipops that Lollyphile has created. There’s also a whole line of wine flavors (chardonney, merlot, and carbernet sauvignon), cocktails (strawberry basil mojito, strawberry-banana daquiri, White Russian, and something called a “Salty Dog”), and spirits (absinthe, amaretto, Irish cream, boubon, and habanero tequila). Other non-alcoholic but equally weird flavors include blue cheese, “breast milk,” Siracha, bacon, Siracha-bacon (there is a distinct difference), wasabi-ginger, and green tea.


If there’s one downside I can see to the beer flavored lollipops, it’s that they will definitely not get you drunk. That’s a darn shame. I would suggest drinking a beer at the same time that you eat a beer-flavored lollipop, but we have no way of knowing what combining those two forces would do to the time-space continuum, so it’s probably best to try them one at a time until the proper research has been done.



*UPDATE: Diggers find Atari's E.T. games in landfill

Baron Mad billy of california also submitted this article.


ALAMOGORDO, N.M. — A decades-old urban legend was put to rest Saturday when workers for a documentary film production company recovered "E.T." Atari game cartridges from a heap of garbage buried deep in the New Mexico desert.

The "Atari grave" was, until that moment, a highly debated tale among gaming enthusiasts and other self-described geeks for 30 years. The story claimed that in its death throes, the video game company sent about a dozen truckloads of cartridges of what many call the worst video game ever to be forever hidden in a concrete-covered landfill in southeastern New Mexico.

The search for the cartridges of a game that contributed to the demise of Atari will be featured in an upcoming documentary about the biggest video game company of the early '80s.

As a backhoe scattered a huge scoop of 30-year-old trash and dirt over the sand, the film crew spotted boxes and booklets carrying the Atari logo. Soon after, a game cartridge turned up, then another and another.


Film director Zak Penn showed assembled gaming fans one cartridge retrieved from the site and said that hundreds more were in the surrounding mounds of garbage.


Most of the crowd left the landfill before the discovery, turned away by strong winds that kicked up massive clouds of dust mingled with garbage.

By the time the games were found, only a few dozen people remained. Some were playing the infamous game in a makeshift gaming den with a TV and an 1980s game console in the back of a van, while others took selfies beside a life-size E.T. doll inside a DeLorean car like the one that was turned into a time machine in the "Back To The Future" movies.


The game's finding came as no surprise to James Heller, a former Atari manager who was invited by the production to the dig site. He says in 1983 the company tasked him with finding an inexpensive way to dispose of 728,000 cartridges they had in a warehouse in El Paso, Texas. After a few local kids ran into trouble for scavenging and the media started calling him about it, he decided to pour a layer of concrete over the games.

"I never heard about again it until June 2013, when I read an article about E.T. being excavated," he remembers. He was not aware of the controversy and never spoke out "because nobody asked."

The documentary about the search is being developed by companies including Xbox Entertainment Studios, and the film is expected to be released later this year on Microsoft's Xbox game consoles.

The city of Alamogordo agreed to give the documentarians up to 250 cartridges and plan to sell the rest that are unearthed.


The game designer, Howard Scott Warshaw, says he does not mind his creation being called that. "It may be a horrible game, but 32 years after, you are here, talking to me about it. It's a tremendous honor," that it still generates public discourse.

He, however, manages to stress that the company took too long to secure the rights for the game and with Christmas production schedules pressing he was left with just five weeks to design, write and test "the worst game ever."

Odd Thomas Review:


Richard Linklider makes a movie over 12 years.

Getting a movie made is hollywood is hard enough. Imagine this pitch. “We are going to shoot the movie with one kid over 12 years. We will start when he is 6 and wrap shooting when he is 18.” I am almost certain every studio said “No thanks.”


Boyhoods trailer was released earlier this week. It does just what I said. It is the story of a boy and his family over 12 years. With the same boy as the lead. Movie started production on 2002 and will be released this year.

Other Equid hybrids include the Zedonk, the Zebrule, the Zony, and the Zorse — all of which are collectively known as Zebroids.







Crack and Machete    Time!

NBC Miami – Neighbors who were smoking crack together in the Florida Keys wound up behind bars after one started swinging a machete at the other, authorities said. The incident happened late Wednesday night when deputies responded to reports of a man swinging a machete at people on Point Pleasant Drive in Key Largo, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said. Deputies found a couple who claimed their neighbor, 53-year-old Antonio Motes-Diaz, had been swinging the machete. As the investigation continued, the couple admitted they had been drinking beer and smoking crack with Motes before the machete incident, authorities said. Motes claimed the couple became upset when he ran out of crack and said the woman spat on him and the man, identified as 26-year-old Christopher Stevens, had attacked him, authorities said. Motes said he grabbed a baseball bat and then a machete to “defend himself,” authorities said. Deputies charged Motes with aggravated assault. Stevens was arrested after he was found to be in possession of Alprazolam, a generic Xanax, without a prescription. Both Motes and Stevens were being held without bond Thursday, and it was unknown whether they have attorneys.

Famed New Orleans social dame is the star guest at her own funeral extravaganza

The consummate hostess, she was never without her glass of champagne or cigarette holder, and wore a flamboyant feather boa, bonnet, and a diamond-studded brooch that said 'Bitch'.

And, on this one occasion, she also happened to be dead.

In a fitting send-off only few could manage, Mickey Easterling - a splashy New Orleans party diva who passed away at the age of 83 following a long illness - requested that her body be propped up at her own funeral and feted one last time.

Always the belle of the ball (even in death), the celebrated socialite and philanthropist was commemorated by more than 1,000 people at a kooky grand memorial service in the lobby of the Saenger Theater on Friday, The Advocate reported.


'She loved the attention. She was flamboyant. She had flair. She was outrageous.'

'It's a really nice way to say, ''The party's over''.'


This is what she wanted. No stone was left unturned for this memorial.'

Homeowner Has To Pay Damages It was an

From Neighbor's Exploding Corpse

explosion, but not the kind of explosion that's covered by homeowner's insurance.

That was the conclusion reached by a Palm Beach County, Florida court last week after six years of litigation, according to the Broward Palm Beach New Times.

From the Times:

 Back in 2008, an elderly woman's undiscovered body had decomposed so badly inside her apartment that it exploded. Fluid from the ruptured corpse began to seep through the floor and into the apartment below, which led the owner of that unit to sue her insurance company, claiming that it needed to pay for the damages.


But State Farm successfully argued that that type of "explosion" didn't fall under Judy Rodrigo's policy.

According to the New York Daily News, the court found that, "The plain meaning of the term 'explosion' does not include a decomposing body's cells explosively expanding, causing leakage of bodily fluids. In short, although novel in her attempt to do so, the insured could not establish that the decomposing body was tantamount to an explosion."

As for how the body could have gone undiscovered for weeks, in 2009 Rodrigo's neighbor Nicholas Colangelo told Courthouse News that the woman lived alone and had no family.


Florida Man Drives Naked, Masturbates In Attempt To 'Entice' Trucker: Cops

Now THIS is auto-eroticism.

Cory Evans, a 22-year-old from Boca Raton, Fla., was arrested on April 14 by Florida Highway Patrol troopers. They received a call at about 12:49 a.m. reporting that Evans was masturbating while driving down Interstate 95, according to an arrest report obtained by TC Palm.

The caller, a semi-truck driver, said that Evans was completely naked behind the wheel and seemed to be matching the speed of the rig. The semi-truck driver told police that Evans "seemed to be enticing him."

Troopers said Evans was clothed when they pulled him over, but they did note his fly was down.

Evans was charged with indecent exposure.

He's far from the first to be accused of driving with his hand firmly on the stick. In December, a UK man got "carried away" and was found naked and masturbating behind the wheel.

And last April, the former vice-mayor of a Tennessee town was accused ofmasturbating with his penis out of the car window whilst driving 90 miles per hour.
