The World’s First Gay Beer

Marketed as the first beer specifically for gay drinkers, Mexican brewery Minerva has released Purple Hand Beer and Salamandra. Made with organic honey and malt, the ‘queer beers’ have an orange flavor, which the brewer believes will appeal to gay communities. You know, because gays love orange.

With labels designed to be easily removed, it also encourages the drinker to re-stick their pride anywhere they’d like. Perhaps on a float in an upcoming parade, or on a Conservative’s car bumper.

And, besides being reminded of a certain SNL sketch, the concept of a gay beer is certainly nothing original. America already has a gay beer… It’s called Michelob Ultra.

Mr. Potato Head Is Now Thinner, Wears Pants

In what could only be described as a carb-cutting measure [he, he], Hasbro recently unveiled a new and noticeably thinner Mr. Potato Head. Officially named Active Adventures Mr. Potato Head, the svelter spud was presented last week during the 2011 International Toy Fair convention in New York City. Thankfully, Potato Head is now able to wear those jeans that haven’t fit since 1952.

Not to be outdone by her mate, Mrs. Potato Head has also gotten off of the couch, and is sporting a slimmer figure.

Now, it is only a matter of time to see if the skinnier spuds will have the intended effect of encouraging active lifestyles. Perhaps potato-shaped humans will now be inspired to take on a more oval appearance — or, the new Potato family will just encourage our youth to develop their body image issues a little faster.
