  • Gee and next to the Thuringen beer soda? At least that’s what I’m reading…

    What next, Trojan brand hot dogs?

    • Why not Trojan hot dogs? There’s already a Magnum ice cream.

      There’s quite a precise science to brand extension. But for the life of me, I can’t work out how this fits. Perhaps it makes for safe teabagging.

  • That is hilarious. Can you imagine the uproar if that was on a store shelf in the US?

    Does it come with a free pack of condoms inside? You know, like the prize in a box of Cracker Jacks?

    Back during the Carter Administration (1977-1981), Jimmy Carter’s beer swilling brother Billy marketed a rather mediocre at best beer as “Billy Beer.” Is there any chance that Billy Carter is also the source of these condoms?

    Soda, chips, and Billy Boy tea – just the right ingredients for a hot Saturday night! I guess the guarana is supposed to help kick things up a notch. This is like Red Bull making condoms, which is maybe not a bad idea in retrospect.
