Things that don’t make sense: alcoholic energy drinks.

I haven’t said anything about this, but I’ve been watching the four loko saga unfold. First there was the incident with the college students in the great state of Washington (which turned out not to be a good thing for the makers, because the Attorney General in that state does his job). Then the state banned the drinks. Now, on the heels of news that the FDA was finally going to get off its dusty butt and do something about black-out-in-a-can, Phusion Projects has announced that it will be removing caffeine from its malt liquor beverages. Seriously, though, malt liquor is like the crack of cheap alcohol and somebody had the brilliant idea of adding a LOT of caffeine (and sugar) to it and marketing it as an energy drink to not-so-intelligent young people? They should have called it lawsuit-in-a-can.
