    The fish will now have school spirits.

    In 1982, ten thousand liters of El Toro spilled into the Presa Barranca de Oblates spillway and everyone thought the tequila’s flavor was improved.

    Smells like fish spirit.

    Also, a liter would be like half a big bottle of Mountain Dew or something, right?

    My hometown was mentioned on Clusterflock, once or twice, it’s nice and all, but then the reporters show up and the cameras and the next thing you know the local elementary school is hosting the entire press corps…I’m not sure it’s really worth it.

    What’s weird is that just a few weeks ago Maker’s Mark made news for watering down their whiskey, and here the water was being whiskey’d down.
    The world is now is balance.

    I like that. Whiskey down the water.
