Smooth criminal

While ComputerGate ’08 ’09 rages on, I thought I’d share this humorous text conversation I had with my youngest brother.  In his defense, he just turned 21 a few months ago, so he’s relatively new to the wonderful world of booze.  But this was too funny not to share, and I’m sure he’s not the first person to make this mistake.  

Bro: Is Lion beer any good?

DP: Never heard of it

Bro: The guy at Harry’s said it was okay and that it was michael jackson who apparently reviews beer loves it

DP: ah…Must have been a while ago, MJ died last year

Bro: Wait what…no way

DP: The beer/whiskey guy?  Yeah in August

Bro: I was thinking the pop singer

DP: And you thought he reviewed beers?

Bro: I don’t know

You can practically hear the “Doh!” coming through on that last text.  You can’t really blame the guy though, when I was 21 I definitely didn’t know there was more than one Michael Jackson on the planet, and that he was some old dude expert on beer and whiskey.  But hey, he was on the right track, heading to a farmer’s market and looking for new and different things to try, that’s what being a good drinker is all about.  

On the other hand, it’s more than a little hilarious that he’d think a beer endorsement from the man who supplied 2 songs to the “Free Willy” soundtrack was a good thing.

You know you love it.

    Okies. I was searching on what brand of cognac is best to make the Smooth Criminal cocktail.. and this came up.. I have to admit it was a funny read tho.

    But I’ going to ask anyway.. which one you’d think better. Hennessy or Landy? 2oz. of one of those plus 2oz. Baileys Irish Cream and voila!

  4. DrinkPlanner says:

    Probably the Hennessy, though the Landy should work just fine. Not having made that drink before I don’t know exactly how it would work with the Bailey’s, but let me know how it turns out!

    Wonderful post – I was working on a similar article which I will probably still write, but from a slightly different angle. Thanks for sharing this with your readers…Obviously a lot of others appreciate it too!
