Get Ready For Your Boycott And Counter-Boycott, Dos Equis

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Obummer loverWhen the Most Interesting Man in the World holds a fundraiser for a certain Kenyan Anti-Colonial Marxist Communist Voodoo Witch, how do you think the Teatards feel about it? Happy? They feel happy, right? (Spoiler: They do not feel happy.) Well, we are getting to see this in action, because some sexy old beast is having a money-party for some other sexy beast, and so they are flocking to Dos Equis’ Facebook page to promise never to buy their Messican beer again!

Dos Equis is smart enough not to let random fucktards post to their main page (they do have a “posts by others” section, unlike your Wonket), but that does not stop the random fucktards from adding pithy comments to Dos Equis’ own posts. Let us read, oh, one, together!

Don C. Booker: I just had my las XX beer,. this bastard who claims to be the most interesting man in the world is an obama butt licker! Screw Dos Equis! Beer of Traitors..

Good comment, Don C. Booker! Apparently over half of your fellow citizens are traitors too, that must suck. Sadface!

Here are a couple comments by another dude:

But those two comments are followed by about a dozen that are all like, whoooo sexy old man and Barack Obama 4EVA, we will buy so much Dos Equis now whoooo!

And then there are a bunch more that Call Obummer a Communist, because whatever, who cares.

And that is what American politics has come to: hate-buying chicken and cupcakes and counter-hate-buying pizza and beer. We are gonna be even fatter, y’all.

Aw crap, now I have to get some Dos Equis, which I don't even like, to support this dude, who irritates me. Fucking wingnuts…

Generation[redacted] September 19, 2012 at 6:28 pm

I need to check to see if 21st Amendment brewery also donates to Obama *fingers crossed*

CommieLibunatic September 19, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Pfff, not me. I'm still angry at Oreo for NOT bringing out a rainbow cookie.

misantropo September 19, 2012 at 7:22 pm

So like Tobias Fünke–Even if it means me taking a chubby, you will suck it up?

BerkeleyBear September 19, 2012 at 7:23 pm

Try the dark, especially on tap with a lime. Either dark or amber kicks the shit out of that Corona crap (although Negra Modelo is superior as MissTaken notes).

PsycWench September 19, 2012 at 7:41 pm

OT but since you brought up wingnuts: Literally Unbelievable, the site that has a lot of Facebook postings by people who think the Onion is news, had this gem today: http://literallyunbelievable.org/post/31858280416

Callyson September 19, 2012 at 7:47 pm

OMFG, that is simultaneously hilarious and terrifying…

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 7:57 pm

I am gobsmacked by this. Gobsmacked.

glasspusher September 19, 2012 at 8:48 pm

Finest News Source(tm)

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 9:01 pm

Srsly. How many seconds would it take to get this shit verified? All those years of creating spiders and webcrawlers and search engines and Google, and we still have people like this who hang their bare faces out all over the InterToobz with questions that make you want to beat them so severely to the detriment of your delicate hands.

No appreciation, I tells ya. None.

Hey, Trump's people are looking into this. You won't believe what they're finding!
No, really … you won't believe it.

Nothingisamiss September 20, 2012 at 8:09 am

I cannot stop reading this site. What have you unleashed?!

PsycWench September 20, 2012 at 8:23 am

Amazing how well despair and amusement combine, don't ya think?

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 7:46 pm

You're doing your duty as an Obese-American, dudine.

PinkoPopulist September 19, 2012 at 5:52 pm

NOobobobama!!!!! MORE LIKE THE LEAST INTERESTING MAN IN THE WORLD! Good thing I don't drink messican piss water anyway!

TribecaMike September 19, 2012 at 11:50 pm

Coincidentally, messican piss water is the main ingredient of the Chiclets that poor kids sell on the streets of border towns to tourists. They sell them at Walmart as well (the Chiclets and the kids).

BadKitty904 September 19, 2012 at 5:53 pm

Right. Since I'm sure Teabaggers are HUGE Dos Equis drinkers…

PinkoPopulist September 19, 2012 at 5:55 pm

They love imported beers, made over seas by people making pennies a day. YAY FREE MARKET!!!

BadKitty904 September 19, 2012 at 5:59 pm

And I'd always reckoned they're more the "Bud Ice" types…

PinkoPopulist September 19, 2012 at 6:02 pm

Me thinks you doth be too generous. Natty Ice maybe, or perhaps beast ice.

I wonder what ol' Mittens thinks of these poors and their high-alcohol content beers.

Beowoof September 19, 2012 at 7:16 pm

Busch has been the beer of choice for most rednecks I know.

Lavenderp September 19, 2012 at 7:27 pm

"I wonder what ol' Mittens thinks of these poors and their high-alcohol content beers."

He thinks they are godless gentiles.

PinkoPopulist September 19, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Anheuser Busch is also owned by Belgian euro-socialists, so I'm going to assume that's a no-no also. Original Coors maybe?

BaldarTFlagass September 19, 2012 at 6:08 pm

I'm thinking Milwaukee's Beast. And for the fat ones, Milwaukee's Beast Light.

Texan_Bulldog September 19, 2012 at 6:35 pm

Nah…it's PBR, which coincidentally also happens to be the same acronym as the Professional Bull Riders.

As in, "Betty, go get me another PBR so I can watch the PBR on teevee! Buuuurrrp….."

Steverino247 September 19, 2012 at 7:21 pm

Rednecks, white socks and Blue Ribbon Beer…

I hate that fucking song.

ChillBill September 19, 2012 at 6:22 pm

Pisstone Light.

BoatOfVelociraptors September 19, 2012 at 9:23 pm

Lie back and think of England.? Get laid out because of England? I forget.

TootsStansbury September 19, 2012 at 7:01 pm

I'm thinking if they dare drink Messican beer it's probably Tecate.

BerkeleyBear September 19, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Really? Tecate with lime and salt strikes me as too authentic for these bozos. Coronitas (the little bottles not sold in stores) by the bucket in some b.s. chain restaurant would be my guess.

BTW, the new tie in is to do a Chelada style thing by sticking a coronita upside down in a margarita – sounds utterly disgusting to me.

TootsStansbury September 19, 2012 at 7:33 pm

Well my Tejas sister always told me they stick Tecate cans in roadkilled Opossum's paws so. and ew what a way to screw up a rita.

BerkeleyBear September 19, 2012 at 11:15 pm

I'm guessing that's a commentary on the roadkill and Messicans in the minds of the geniuses who do that sort of stuff. Roadkill possums are gross – although a stuffed armadillo with a beer might be a little bit amusing.

thebeatgoeson September 19, 2012 at 9:05 pm

I found a margarita recipe that had beer in it and it was actually really good. Corona would work great because the beer can't have much taste, but somehow it cuts the sweetness and mellows out the tequila taste. I suppose if you really love a strong tequila taste, though, it wouldn't be to your liking.

viennawoods13 September 19, 2012 at 10:44 pm

It's much better straight from the freezer without anything to contaminate it.

BaldarTFlagass September 20, 2012 at 8:11 am

I posted this below:
beer margaritas:
12 oz tequila
12 oz club soda (or 7-Up if u like it sweeter)
12 oz frozen limeade concentrate
12 oz Dos Equis (or Mexican beer of your choice)
stir in appropriately-sized pitcher, serve over ice, with or without salt per your preference. You won't really even notice the beer. Very refreshing.

CindynEncinitas September 20, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Chelada style in Cabo is to pour the Corona in a cup over ice and put salt on the rim. It's the preferred method at the swim-up bars, dontcha know?

Native_of_SL_UT September 19, 2012 at 9:01 pm

The advertising seems to promote this beer as an elitist drink, so, yeah, I'm thinking they already were avoiding it.

a_pink_poodle September 19, 2012 at 5:53 pm

I don't always drink beer.

But when I do… I drink it to drown out the conservatives.

facehead September 19, 2012 at 5:54 pm

I don't always read Wonkette, but when I do … fap! fap! fap!

Woodshedding September 19, 2012 at 6:11 pm

You just made my day

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 8:00 pm

Srsly. It's *so* nice to be appreciated.

actor212 September 20, 2012 at 9:40 am

Really?

Dos Equis is smart enough not to let random fucktards post to their main page (they do have a “posts by others” section, unlike your Wonket)

Editrix just called us "random fucktards"…

I'm offended by the "random" and demand an apology or I shall boycott her brand of her cigarettes!

SexySmurf September 19, 2012 at 5:54 pm

this bastard who claims to be the most interesting man in the world is an obama butt licker!

I don't always lick butts, but when I do….

anniegetyerfun September 19, 2012 at 7:33 pm

I'm tickled that they believe he is ACTUALLY claiming to be the most interesting man in the world.

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 8:01 pm

They don't seem to have the strongest grip on reality, on the whole.

glasspusher September 19, 2012 at 8:53 pm

The teevee is their reality.

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 9:09 pm

There's *that* to consider, huh?

miss_grundy September 19, 2012 at 10:54 pm

They must think commercials are real, like that Honey Boo Boo or those other reality edited shows…..

DemmeFatale September 19, 2012 at 8:41 pm

….or the keenest sense of humor.

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 9:09 pm

No. They R Srs Kittehz.

What about Robert E. Lee-en-brau?

BoatOfVelociraptors September 19, 2012 at 9:37 pm

Kirin Kamikaze? That would be like Four Loco.

PsycWench September 19, 2012 at 5:55 pm

I'll be squeezing some limes later.

zippy_w_pinhead September 19, 2012 at 9:15 pm

is that some sort of fancy liberal innuendo?

PsycWench September 19, 2012 at 9:39 pm

I'm squeezing limes, not Limey Lizzy.

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 19, 2012 at 11:50 pm

Ah, so you are going solo.

Lascauxcaveman September 20, 2012 at 1:03 am

Lizzie's are cantaloupes, PschWench, maybe limes? It all good, really.

Lavenderp September 19, 2012 at 5:55 pm

Will he be even more interesting if they upgrade to 'Tres Equis'?

BlackRhino September 19, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Yep, when you drink Tres Equis you wake the next morning naked with sexual fluids all about.

BaldarTFlagass September 19, 2012 at 6:50 pm

Or in a bathtub full of ice and your kidneys missing.

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 8:01 pm

Only *one* of them, or you'd be hearing a lot more about it.

Lavenderp September 19, 2012 at 8:03 pm

I was thinking if both were missing, you wouldn't be waking up at all.

I_P September 19, 2012 at 5:56 pm

I'm more of a Negra Modelo man but I guess I'm going to have to go buy some Dos Equis now…

bobbert September 19, 2012 at 6:11 pm

Zacktly.

Sharkey September 19, 2012 at 7:48 pm

Ha ha you said "Negra"!

Negropolis September 19, 2012 at 10:13 pm

You know what they say. Once you go Negra Modelo, you never go back.

HELisforHEL September 20, 2012 at 2:05 pm

Hee!

PinkoPopulist September 19, 2012 at 5:56 pm

Stay communist my friends.

Joshua Norton September 19, 2012 at 5:57 pm

While the streets of Birmingham and Selma were the sites of the Civil Rights struggles of the 1960s, the right wing battles of the 21st Century are being fought by eating fast food and drinking the right kind of beer – because America, that's why.

PinkoPopulist September 19, 2012 at 6:04 pm

And Constitution, also. too.

SayItWithWookies September 19, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Don't forget the Woolworth's lunch counter — that was over coffee and key lime pie.

Lavenderp September 19, 2012 at 6:08 pm

Key lime pie? Really? I'd have guessed banana pudding…

Steverino247 September 19, 2012 at 7:22 pm

weejee September 19, 2012 at 6:59 pm

To celebrate Teaparty bankruptcy, I'll boycott Hostess Twinkies since they too are in bankruptcy and were not saved by WillardBain. Speaking of also and toos, or twos, it has probably been forty-two years since I last ate a Twinkie (college years muchies, perhaps). But hey it's the thought that counts, amirite?

bobbert September 19, 2012 at 8:54 pm

You know, I'm sure I must have eaten a Twinkie at some time in my life, but I'm damned if I can remember it.

starfanglednut September 19, 2012 at 9:12 pm

I ate the chocolate frosted cupcakes every day while I was quitting smoking. Gained about 20 pounds.

Lascauxcaveman September 20, 2012 at 1:12 am

THOSE are actually pretty good. And the berry pies too. Yeah, I could eat a lot of those.

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 8:03 pm

And you know Chick-fil-A totally rolled over for Teh Gheys, right? Boy are the wingnuts mad. They can't even eat shitty fast food for hate n e moar.

BigSkullF*ckingDog September 19, 2012 at 8:39 pm

Ha ha. The geys don't want to eat their shitty sammiches anyway. Too fatty.

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 8:56 pm

Well, yeah, but *still.*

DemmeFatale September 19, 2012 at 8:47 pm

I think they were worried that cities, (like Chicago), would keep them from planting their shitty "restaurants" everywhere.
The damage has been done. They are the Wal-Mart of fast food.

(BTW: their stupid "Eat Mor Chikin" ads just make me sad.)

starfanglednut September 19, 2012 at 9:13 pm

Hehe, you said roll over for teh gays.

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 9:24 pm

Oh, YSWIDT, huh?

mayor_quimby September 19, 2012 at 8:09 pm

Good thing all my favorite vodkas are made by (former) commies. As a libtard am I allowed to drink Tito's, since it's made in Tejas and all?

It's 6x filtered.

Biel_ze_Bubba September 20, 2012 at 7:23 am

I seriously worry about what's in the water down there.

BaldarTFlagass September 20, 2012 at 8:08 am

Dude, it's made in Austin. The Un-Texas.

Chick-fil-a is the new Selma, y'all.

snarkusbachmann September 19, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Gawd dangit, I hate Dos Equis, but now I have to head to the store to buy a case of it. Maybe my Socialist ass can give it to the homeless guys downtown.

Preacher_Griz September 19, 2012 at 5:57 pm

We need to be boycotting muslim beer, jewish beer (except for Israeli jewish beer) and beer from ALL SOCIALIST EUROPEAN countries and Antarctica AND FINALLY all United Nations beer!

Boycott!!!!

Boojum September 19, 2012 at 6:05 pm

And Kenyan beer!

GunToting[Redacted] September 19, 2012 at 6:07 pm

You can pry my He-Brew from my cold, dead fingers.

Guppy September 19, 2012 at 8:07 pm

Wasn't beer invented in Egypt?

miss_grundy September 19, 2012 at 10:58 pm

So I can buy Newcastle Ale at Trader Joe's???????

Biel_ze_Bubba September 20, 2012 at 7:24 am

There must be some way to let the knuckle-draggers know that their Bud is now made by InBev, a Eurocommie corporation.

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 19, 2012 at 5:57 pm

this bastard who claims to be the most interesting man in the world is an obama butt licker!

If that is literally true, it would make him very interesting.

Beowoof September 19, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Rim jobs for Cinco de Mayo

JohnnyQuick September 19, 2012 at 8:19 pm

That's… not salt around the rim, is it?

TribecaMike September 19, 2012 at 9:04 pm

The secret's in the lime.

Schmannnity September 19, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Now, if he advertised for PBR or Old Milwaukee, a Teaparty boycott would really hurt.

PsycWench September 19, 2012 at 5:58 pm

If he advertised for Wal Mart, their heads would explode.

Schmannnity September 19, 2012 at 6:02 pm

"I don't always buy a gross of tube socks, but when I do…"

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 8:04 pm

Gross. Tube socks.

PinkoPopulist September 19, 2012 at 6:06 pm

Or even better, Chic-fil-a!

Tequila Mockingbird September 19, 2012 at 6:06 pm

Imagine if he'd shilled for NASCAR? This country would have imploded upon itself like the LOST island in the series finale.

Schmannnity September 19, 2012 at 6:14 pm

You didn't say spoiler alert. What's next, a Botwin family reunion?

Negropolis September 19, 2012 at 10:18 pm

What I wouldn't give for a Smoke Monster that eats Republicans right about now….

miss_grundy September 19, 2012 at 11:00 pm

Actually, I only have one Republican in mind but he's doing a pretty good job of imploding all by his little lonesome self. On to the debates!

rickmaci September 19, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Sorry. I was running low on Dos Equis so I ran out to buy a case. Now what were you saying about Mittinez Pesos, the most uninteresting man in the world? Oh yah, sheep count him to go to sleep.

Lavenderp September 19, 2012 at 6:12 pm

I don't always count sheeple to get to sleep, but when I do…

glasspusher September 19, 2012 at 9:01 pm

WAKE UP SHEEPLE!!!!

glasspusher September 19, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Srsly. Mittens is this guy's antiparticle.

BoatOfVelociraptors September 19, 2012 at 9:49 pm

Actually, the mussed hair was rather interesting.

skmind September 19, 2012 at 5:58 pm

In other news, Chick-fil-A decided not to openly hate the openly gay. Bet that's going to spark even more boycotts. No diabetic chicken and no beer? How will red states survive?

Besides why is the Million Mom's Club totally silent on this?

sullivanst September 19, 2012 at 6:08 pm

Besides why is the Million Mom's Club totally silent on this?

Still trying to work out exactly how to represent this is a stunning victory.

Lavenderp September 19, 2012 at 6:13 pm

"Besides why is the Million Mom's Club totally silent on this?"

She's hanging out at Pinterest now…

Callyson September 19, 2012 at 6:54 pm

Along with re-evaluating funding to anti-gay marriage activist groups, Moreno said, Chick-fil-A has agreed to amend its corporate policy to include sexual orientation in its anti-discrimination policy.

Oh, the wingnuts will really lose it if this goes down.

BTW, is Chick-fil-A's food any good? I've never been there, but if they make this change, I'll have to take an off-diet day and check them out…

anniegetyerfun September 19, 2012 at 7:36 pm

I was wondering because I have heard people wax rhapsodic about it, but a friend of mine just ate a sandwich there a couple of days ago and confirms that it is dry, too light on the pickles, and definitely not worth the money.

ProgressiveInga September 19, 2012 at 8:21 pm

Years ago before I started my own personal girlcott of Chik-Fil-A, it was the only fast food I would eat, albeit rarely. You can order your fried Chik on a whole wheat bun and feel a wee bit righteous. Fried tastes better than the grilled, b/c well, fried…… Waffle fries taste good when they're hot but feel like a ton of bricks in your gut during the digestion process…..Bon appetit!

Lavenderp September 19, 2012 at 8:35 pm

CFA is great for the sodium-deficient.

I like salt, but not that much…

TribecaMike September 19, 2012 at 9:13 pm

Their product is no different than the processed product everyone else peddles.

miss_grundy September 19, 2012 at 11:04 pm

When traveling from Chicago to Miami to visit my aunt until she died, I would stop at a Chick-Fil-A and buy their chicken fingers and waffle fries. The dogs and I would pig out. My boys did love their chicken. Yep, I miss them, one died in 2008 and the other in 2009.

Callyson September 19, 2012 at 11:54 pm

Aw, my dogs and I send an internet comfort hug your way…

HELisforHEL September 20, 2012 at 2:21 pm

My old girl is missed daily, too.
Happy to have a newly minted pooch after a year without, but old dogs are never forgotten. Or replaced. :-)

CindynEncinitas September 20, 2012 at 2:02 pm

It's just a chicken sandwich. Like what you order at jack in the box if you're feeling a little queasy. Big deal.

Guppy September 19, 2012 at 8:10 pm

This has me wondering, though: is it now OK to patronize my local Chick-Fil-A, now that they've gone from "evil" to "neutral?" And, if so, what about Target?

What are the ethics of boycotts (beyond CommieMommie's opinion, which Our Editrix mentioned earlier)?

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 8:13 pm

They're both on vacation.

delaney_blom September 20, 2012 at 8:26 am

Easy math for Chik Fil A:

Love of money > Hate for gay

Can we be the Beer Party now?

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 19, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Wait a minute, shouldn't 'baggers be drinking Sam Adams?

Oh wait, it's from Boston, and everyone knows that everything from Boston is liberal elitist socialist crap….

Wait a minute…..

Boojum September 19, 2012 at 6:04 pm

PBR, baby!

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 19, 2012 at 6:17 pm

I don't know. PBR was from Milwaukee, WI, which is known for their socialist (hand it to the Mexicans, but Drug Cartels are very capitalistic). And they make malt liquor, and we all know who drinks that.

If there was only a good non-hippy, non-socialist beer left in the country. I guess the 'baggers will have to content themselves with home brew, like our president…, wait a minute…..

Terry September 19, 2012 at 7:08 pm

Lone Star or perhaps the worst beer on Earth, Red White and Blue. Aptly named, isn't it? In college, we could gather the change from the bottom of our purses and buy a six of Red White and Blue, sometime more if it was on sale. It is absolutely, positively the worst beer I've ever tasted…and as I attended State universities, I've tried a lot.

BerkeleyBear September 19, 2012 at 7:29 pm

Wiedeman's was the West Coast equivalent – basically the packaging cost more than the beer.

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 19, 2012 at 7:43 pm

Lone Star is owned by Pabst (it was own by Olympia when Pabst bought Olympia), so, again, despite the name, drinking it will make you a commie druggie gay hippie. I guess Coors is the only beer that is proud to be American anymore.

mayor_quimby September 19, 2012 at 8:37 pm

Aren't they South African (the good white kind) now?

CindynEncinitas September 20, 2012 at 2:04 pm

You just pissed off devotees of the gazillion micro-brews between our shores…

Biff September 19, 2012 at 7:49 pm

How about just plain old generic beer?

Biel_ze_Bubba September 20, 2012 at 7:31 am

Do they still sell generic econo-beer? I doubt it would consistent from batch to batch, but if you're buying this, you aren't buying for the taste anyhow.

glasspusher September 19, 2012 at 9:07 pm

Agreed. My roomies bought a case of red white and blue, cold, for five bucks once back in the eighties. It had particles floating around in it. No thanks! Stegmeier (sic?) is also pretty harsh.

PubOption September 19, 2012 at 8:00 pm

They could try Schlafly, owned in part by Phyllis's nephew.

vtxmcrider September 19, 2012 at 11:44 pm

rickmaci September 19, 2012 at 6:03 pm

So, all the Mormons are now boycotting Dos Equis beer? That's gonna leave a mark…

OneYieldRegular September 19, 2012 at 7:07 pm

I was going to say, this boycott is going to be incredibly easy for Mitt, of whom one can't even ask the most important question of every presidential election: Who would you most like to have a beer with?

Terry September 19, 2012 at 7:10 pm

Fun fact. There is one State Store in downtown Salt Lake City that sells beer, wine, and liquor. (You can find a few wine shops out in the suburbs.) The local Mormon stakes, which are like parishes I guess, post guys in cars outside the State Store to see if they recognize anyone trying to go in quietly and by alcohol.

I'm insanely interested to see what happens to SLC and the rest of Utah in say, 30 years, with the explosion in the growth of Catholic Latinos, particularly as they get active in local and state politics, there.

Steverino247 September 19, 2012 at 11:48 pm

Mormons outbreed everybody. The birth rate in SLC was higher than Mexico City, the last time I looked.

Negropolis September 19, 2012 at 11:53 pm

Yes, but Utah is getting more hispanic in spite of this. The migration to Utah is obviously outpacing white (even Mormon) birthrates. Who knows how long this will last, but it's empirically clear that Utah is becoming less white and less Mormon.

Here's the real kicker, though: Chick-Fil-A has Dr. Pepper on tap.

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 19, 2012 at 6:01 pm

FACT CHECK: If you decide what beer to drink because an actor in a commercial hosts a political fund raiser, you have already drunk too much beer.

I have been buying Sam Adams, as it isn't produced by a foreign conglomerate brewing company and it is one of my meager little efforts to buy from American companies. And the Oktoberfest is awesome. But in this case a case of Dos Equis maybe on tap.

Steverino247 September 19, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Dos Equis on tap is pretty fucking good, in my humble opinion.

TribecaMike September 19, 2012 at 9:15 pm

I used to prefer Bass on tap, but a few years ago the taste changed for the worse.

C_ARRGH_Eature September 19, 2012 at 9:23 pm

Biel_ze_Bubba September 20, 2012 at 7:38 am

I've been waiting for an opening, and that will have to do. From the NYT :

As the campaign plane landed in Dallas on Tuesday night, Mr. Romney got on the intercom to welcome home two reporters whose families live in Texas, one from CNN, the other from NBC News. He said he was sorry to miss a planned pool party that one of the reporters planned to hold in the evening. “I was a little offended not to be invited for gobbler cobbler,” he said, playfully.

GunToting[Redacted] September 19, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Stay angry, my friends.

glamourdammerung September 19, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Stay angry, my friends.

Especially the ones in "Red States" since they are even less likely to have health insurance for the inevitable heart problems.

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 19, 2012 at 6:06 pm

Sort of off topic, but Jonathan Goldsmith is not allowed to do the accent outside of Dos Equis promotional work.

And why is it that Jews are always hired to play Mexicans? You would think it would be cheaper to hire a Mexican.

anniegetyerfun September 19, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Is he supposed to be Mexican? I assumed he was one of those Germans by way of Argentina or something.

Chet Kincaid_ September 19, 2012 at 8:01 pm

Oligarchs in central/south america tend to be as white as their Spanish forebears.

Chet Kincaid_ September 19, 2012 at 7:57 pm

Yes, like Mark Margolis who played Tio The Old Mute Mexican Gangster who helped Walter White with his Gus Fring problem. Margolis played a Cuban in "Scarface", also. And I think they had him play a gypsy on Law & Order SVU recently. Really, Dos Equis should just hire the real guy, Carlos Slim, to play himself:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Slim

TribecaMike September 19, 2012 at 8:00 pm

Charlie_Foxtrot September 19, 2012 at 10:00 pm

My ex had a cousin from Mexico, 100% Mexican, working as an actress in LA. She couldn't get roles as a Mexican because she has light brown hair and green eyes, and therefore didn't "look Mexican."

Then Rachel said something along the lines of: These babies are welcome to America? As if they came from somewhere else?

She also said something like "hello babies" was a meme brought to prominence by teh wonkette. I always thought that was Dr. Johnny Fever, but whatever.

BaldarTFlagass September 19, 2012 at 6:48 pm

Buy some and make micheladas http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelada
or beer margaritas:
12 oz tequila
12 oz club soda (or 7-Up if u like it sweeter)
12 oz frozen limeade concentrate
12 oz Dos Equis (or Mexican beer of your choice)
stir in appropriately-sized pitcher, serve over ice, with or without salt per your preference. You won't even taste the beer hardly. Very refreshing.
This has been fucking people up at the Flagass residence for years (fortunately there are plenty of extra beds)

Mr. Goldsmith was interviewed by Terry Gross on Fresh Air just a few days ago. He based his Dos Equis character on his great friend the late Fernando Lamas, a known Hispanic. He also told Terry he was advising Putin and worked in a comment that Sarah could see Putin from her house.

Steverino247 September 19, 2012 at 7:40 pm

From the Web:

Advertising work:

Beginning in April 2007 and continuing through 2012, Goldsmith had been featured in a high profile television ad campaign, promoting Dos Equis beer.[7] The campaign, which transformed Goldsmith into "the most interesting man in the world", has been credited for helping to fuel a 15.4 percent sales increase for the brand in America in 2009 and also made him into a very popular meme.[5]

Charity work:

Goldsmith supported the S.A.B.R.E Foundation,[8] whose mission is to protect and preserve the Siberian Tiger.

Goldsmith’s other charitable causes are Free Arts for Abused Children,[9] which pairs artists with children in protective custody, and the Stella Link Foundation,[10] a group calling attention to child sex trafficking in Cambodia.

OK, so the fascists want to shit all over a guy who does that well for a business and does such nice things for kids and tigers. Fuck 'em.

*He once had his friends hold a gay classmate down while he gave him a haircut–it turned out fierce and he's been cutting it regularly ever since.
*He once completed a marathon in just under four hours, a new personal best for the Wisconsin congressman he was carrying on his back.
*In his youth, he was known to dress up like a police officer … whenever authorities came to him complaining the crime rate was too high.
*His dressage pony isn't a write-off, it's a capital gain.
*He won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for discovering a safe means of handling Santorum.
*When he issues a press release about events that have yet to transpire, it's accurate anyway.
*One stern look from him is capable of rendering Newt Gingrich speechless, Michelle Bachmann sensical and Mitt Romney truthful.

TribecaMike September 19, 2012 at 9:54 pm

I really wish PBS would rerun a program Fred Rogers produced in the late 70's called "Old Friends… New Friends," about interesting and often oddball Americans. One episode about a small town drunk who regularly spent his weekends in the drunk tank but who was also a superb folk artist (and who's work probably sells for hundreds of thousands now on the "naive art" market) was especially memorable. I'll never forget Fred and that crazy old chain-smoking coot just kicking back at the guy's trailer and talking honestly about life, philosophy and inspiration.

fuflans September 19, 2012 at 10:17 pm

HA! that's great!

i have a handicapped brother who adored mr. rogers and we got invited on the show – i think it aired around that time, i was maybe 6 or 7 – but the whole discussion on the episode was people who are different and how they look at the world in different beautiful ways.

always had a soft spot for that man.

TribecaMike September 19, 2012 at 10:31 pm

Cool. Fred was one of a kind. I never really appreciated him until I got older. And continuing the beer theme, he was from Latrobe, PA, one-time home of the Rolling Rock brewery.

Negra Modelo is one of my favorite German Alt-style beers (seriously, it's right there int the Beer Judge Certification Program, of which I am a graduate). Prosit!

But tomorrow, I'm going to buy a case Dos Equis just because. It's been forever since I've had one, and I can't remember if I like it, but I always like to be the guy who proves there no such thing as bad publicity.

Jukesgrrl September 20, 2012 at 2:34 am

I don't even drink beer but I bought a six-pack at the supermarket this weekend. I just ASSUMED there would be a boycott. And it never hurts to have an interesting man in the refrigerator.

Jus_Wonderin September 20, 2012 at 6:51 am

I agree. Oh, wait, you meant the beer. Forget this posting.

HistoriCat September 20, 2012 at 9:39 am

And it never hurts to have an interesting man in the refrigerator.

I believe Mittborg can recommend some good recipes in that case.

RufusTFirefly September 20, 2012 at 12:48 am

Your politics should never determine your choice of alcohol. I mean, what's really important here…

Jus_Wonderin September 20, 2012 at 7:40 am

Honestly, alcohol, and plenty of it, should facilitate your choice in politics.

TribecaMike September 20, 2012 at 1:15 am

These schmos need to make up their minds — you either worship corporations or you don't. Geez, it's not rocket science (unless you're talking about General Dynamics, Teledyne, Aegis Defense Services, McDonnell Douglas, ad infinitum).

Lot_49 September 20, 2012 at 1:21 am

Conservatards, listen carefully: "actors" are people who play "roles" in exchange for "money." What they do in their personal lives may or–this is important–may not reflect their personal beliefs. E.g. Kelsey Grammer, Victoria Jackson, etc.

Plus, Dos Equis is owned by Heinekin, and is no more an American product than Budweiser.

HogeyeGrex September 20, 2012 at 1:52 am

Apparently over half of your fellow citizens are traitors too, that must suck.

Yeah, and that from a guy who I suspect has a Confederate flag on his wall and/or car.

Oh Goddess Irony, thou art wounded mortally.

TribecaMike September 20, 2012 at 2:14 am

Dos Equis alcohol content: 4.8%

Nate Silver's prediction that the president will be reelected: 94.4%

Stay frosty, my friends.

Sassomatic September 20, 2012 at 2:50 am

I'm confused, Just recently, I seen to remember something about boycotting a company because of their political stance being a violation of FREEEDOMMMS OF SPEACH!1!!11!11 Have these people not heard of the constitution?

Tsunami Ali September 20, 2012 at 3:06 am

Haha, I thought it said, "Dos Passos" and we would all relive the turbulent, socialist 30's. I'm up too late.

Toomush_Infer September 20, 2012 at 8:34 am

Hey, that Negro Modela is my wife's favorite, so she's pleased you said so…

Biel_ze_Bubba September 20, 2012 at 8:41 am

Furious wingnuts will stop buying Dos Equis.
They will also stop buying Jay-Z's music.

Can the Republic survive these cosmic blows to interstate commerce?

SoBeach September 20, 2012 at 9:17 am

Dos Equis Amber is no Negra Modelo, but it's still pretty good.

Yeah, but a Dos Equis Amber draft beats a Negra Modelo in a bottle.

Gracias a Dios my local cantina doesn't have Negra Modelo on draft. I'd never leave.

YasserArraFeck September 20, 2012 at 10:30 am

Well, that fuckin' does it – I'm laying in a case of Dos Equis for election night.

grandinquisitor September 20, 2012 at 12:45 pm

Finally, a way to cut down on the number of tragic drunk hoveround accidents.

okeducationtruths September 20, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Maybe if we'd drink more beer we'd be less pissy with each other.

aboutheagora September 21, 2012 at 5:38 am

I don't drink that beer out of spite. I sent them a commercial idea for The Most Interesting Man in the World that was pure gold and in their response they acted like they caught me drunk and pissing in their swimming pool while their kids were playing in it. The concept was simple, "when he catches a home run ball, HE signs it and throws it back to the player". Maybe it was more like comic silver but hey like Carlin says, fuck you, you didn't think of it.

That only applies to the 47%, you know. Weaklings.

Watered down rum, matey.

C_ARRGH_Eature September 19, 2012 at 8:41 pm

bobbert be correct, ye SaltyDog! It's pretty much a watered-down mix of weak beer and Rum and named after the Limey Admiral Vernon as made his Salin' Men drink the stuff. Grog came from the Admiral's nickname - "Old Grogram"- as he allus wore a Grogram cloth coat.

Servin' Grog on my ship is cause to find yersel' Walkin' the Plank, too.

Why the fuck would anyone do that? Er, argh matey blah blah blah.

Having followed that site for a little while, I can say that the right-wingers are much more likely to fall for something than liberals (liberals do have their moments though). Check http://literallyunbelievable.org/post/31269274396… and http://literallyunbelievable.org/post/30519264989

MittBorg September 19, 2012 at 9:47 pm

I'm still flabbergasted that anyone could look at a site calling itself "Literally Unbelievable" that sources the world's best-known satirical paper, and take it seriously. Maybe these commenters all have organic brain disorders?

Callyson September 19, 2012 at 10:24 pm

Jesus, these people need therapy…or maybe they're beyond help…

C_ARRGH_Eature September 19, 2012 at 10:10 pm

Drool.

bobbert September 20, 2012 at 1:44 am

Actually, isn't it the case that the site collects facebook posts that take Onion articles seriously? That is, the idiots read the Onion article (perhaps second-hand), think it's true, and post about it.

They don't actually go to LU, they just get quoted on it.

bobbert September 20, 2012 at 1:45 am

Oh, I remember eating the berry and apple pies well enough.

Biel_ze_Bubba September 20, 2012 at 7:21 am

As a kid, used to like the pies, until I read the ingredients list on a "cherry" pie. The expected collection of sugar, corn syrup, gums, preservatives, red dye #1, artificial cherry flavor … and grapes. Not one fucking cherry.

On the front of the package: "Made With Real Fruit!"

Haven't touched one since.

MittBorg September 20, 2012 at 1:59 am

Good point. Still, do YOU repeat the nonsense YOU hear without checking? Just the other day someone told me Mitt Romney referred to Latinos as "taco jockeys," and I was willing to believe it, but two seconds on Google led me to spoof sites only and I had to give up my long-cherished dream of tarnishing Mitt's name (I know, as if). And these people are willing to believe any bit of flying shite that goes by.

MittBorg September 20, 2012 at 2:00 am

Listen, I flipped them the rigid digit right back.

Biel_ze_Bubba September 20, 2012 at 7:09 am

These the brain-damaged mouth-breathers who will vote for Mitt "no matter what."

I don't think anyone's ever done research on the size of this demographic.

bobbert September 20, 2012 at 3:38 am

I try not to (unless I read it on teh Wonket, of course). And I don't think you have to worry about tarnishing Mitt's name; he seems to be all over it.

TootsStansbury September 20, 2012 at 6:43 am

Much to my chagrin, I realized this morning I confused Tecate with Lone Star! Ahhhhhhh! And I wasn't even drunk. Yet.
ETA and it isn't possums it's armadillos! What a load of derpiness my comment is!

viennawoods13 September 20, 2012 at 7:27 am

All clear-cut now.

Biff September 20, 2012 at 8:13 am

No idea. Even though I was a poor when I was drinking beer, I avoided the generics and lower-class offerings, except the occasional Brown Derby or Lucky(I only bought it for the riddles under the cap, I swear)!

PsycWench September 20, 2012 at 8:25 am

I'm inclined to think they'll vote against Obama "no matter what". I don't hear a lot of praise of Mitt except from his entourage.

Steverino247 September 20, 2012 at 9:44 am

That's good for Utah unless the Hispanics get converted to LDS, which does happen occasionally. Mormons better start mowing their own lawns if they know what's good for their need to control every fucking thing around them.

Not_So_Much September 20, 2012 at 2:34 pm

SLC (or as we refer to it from just North of there "Idaho's Sphincter") itself is actually pretty secular and progressive. Significant LGBT community, music, dancing with naughty bits touching and everything. But the Mo's completely own state politics. It would take a major population turnover to upset the machine they've established there.

HistoriCat September 20, 2012 at 9:48 am

That's OK – you can still run for a major political office as a Republican.

CindynEncinitas September 20, 2012 at 1:56 pm

OMG! Driving through Rancho Santa Fe on my way to work one day, I saw a bottle on the side of the road… champagne bottle! Well done, RSF litterers, I thought!

Negropolis September 20, 2012 at 9:29 pm

The LDS church, though, still controls a lot of the power even in SLC proper. Hell, their church is the middle of downtown and they have their fingers in such about every pie you can think of.

Again, I'm just interested to see how they'll react to changing religious demographics. Will they panic like evangelicals have in some states and just entrench more, or will they retire into the distrance into their own communities? I'm really wondering if what will happen there is like what happened in the South where the white population panicked, coalesced and essentially gerrymandered themselves into a permanent majority against the large black minorities.
