Chaos at the Russian Food Pyramid

“Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has signed a bill that officially classifies beer as alcoholic. Until now anything containing less than 10% alcohol in Russia has been considered a foodstuff.” [BBC, via Daring Fireball]


Well now see I love that thing in MN where the beer you buy in the grocery is like 4% alcohol so you borrow some bucks offen your buds and drink 19 of em and never feel it. Plus you got all the nourishment a hops.

(Yes, I am commenting in a MN accent)

“What do you mean, ‘booze ain’t food’?”


@redmanlaw: i’ve heard it told that the russians invented kerosene trying to invent something to drink out of crude oil. when you drink a mettalican sober, you are a bad mofo. ever wonder why no russians were ever taken hostage in lebanon in the 80’s? i saw a 60 minutes type show awhile back with a CIA agent explaining why. he said only one russian was ever taken hostage. the kidnapping mullah sent his son to the russian consulate or whatever with the ransom demand. the russians welcomed him in and offered him vodka knowing the messenger would accept because most islamic men will drink when away from home and the stiff penalties and stigmas they suffer there. of course the messenger passed out awful quick. the russians then decapitated him, put his head in a box wrapped up like a birthday present and left the box on the mullahs front door with a card stating that russians don’t give a damn about no hostages. if jimmy carter had done that to the iranians, ronnie reagan would have never been president.
