Feed the Bums (BudLight) Tuppence a Can

Posted: May 5, 2023 by datechguy in culture

Ok in fairness we’re not at that point but we’re starting to head in that direction:

Via Gateway Pundit yes you’re seeing that right. Bud Light at under .50 a can. You can’t buy a store brand can of soda for that price.

And if people aren’t paying .50 a can for Bud they certainly aren’t willing to pay ball park prices:

Beer doesn’t last forever and unless the plan is to dump it in the NJ woods next to the pasta they have to move it. The only question is how low can it go? .40 a can? a quarter a can? A dime? A nickel? An old lady asking you to by the bums a drink at Tuppence a can?

That’s where this is heading and the folks at Instapundit have a pretty clear idea how this ends:

If an Anheuser-Busch spokesman apologizes, the brand will take a brief, but huge hit on social media from the leftist mob — who don’t drink Bud Light, anyway — but the mob will quickly move on to something else to be angry about. In the meantime, as John Ekdahl tweets, “The biggest problem isn’t even the boycott; it’s that they’ve become a cultural punchline. This is now like having an AOL email address or driving a minivan. People avoid it so their buddies don’t rip them. Not sure how you fix that as a brand.”

The longer this goes on the bigger the hit. What it really comes down to is this: Would they rather sell beer or be thought of as one of the cool kids at parties with leftists?

Hey maybe they’ll luck out and Portland or Seattle will declare Beer a human right and buy up all the cheep cases to distribute to the homeless. Has to be less dangerous than fentanyl.
