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.
DP: Never heard of 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.
