A New Holiday Tradition?

so one night, having sushi with some coworkers on pay day, and having had more than a handful of sake bombers, i apparantly came up with the idea to host a "Children of the Corn & Mad Dog 20/20 Party." i say apparantly because i have little or no recollection of this, although it sounds like the kind of thing i would do given the circumstances.

i guess the idea was a hit, because a few days later the coworkers were holding me to it, even though by this time i realized it would be a terrible idea. but too late; events were set in motion and on Thanksgiving Eve it was on....



i provided the house and the Children of the Corn via Netflix, and one of the crew picked up a bounty of MD 20/20. flavors represented were Orange Jubilee (aka Orange), Banana Red (aka Red), and Red Grape Wine (aka "PURPLE!!!"). we each had one quart, and then split the last PURPLE 4 ways. no one volunteered to drink the last one alone. i think we all feared the revolt our intestines would be in the next morning. plus, in regards to "Red Grape Wine," even the CEO of MD20/20 Inc has been quoted as saying "that stuff is just...awful"*

*(may not be an actual quote from the CEO, but i bet you'd never catch him drinking one either, so....)



here's a neat trick: to make ANY beer taste delicious, simply drink one immediately after drinking any flavor of MD20/20. dull-ass Session lager never went down so smooth.....



we ran out of beer pretty early, but it was probably for the best. the hangovers were surprisingly mild, even after staying up til 4am, having pull-up contests, and this brute beating my punching bag in half...

(dramatic re-enactment of actual event)

also, Children of the Corn is still a decent creepy movie.

please feel free to host your own CotC/MD20x2 Party and get back to us with results...
