Budweiser is releasing a new bow-tie-shaped can to attract young people to its brand.
This is only of interest to me since our “Labatt Center” here in London has now been re0named the “Budweiser Gardens!”
(Name change of not, it’s still one of the top ten concert venues in North America!)
The design is intended to appeal to trend-seekers and ” young adults who haven’t yet tried a Budweiser,” a company spokesman wrote.
(Deleted because I decided that it was too stupid!)
Well boys and girls, we told ya that the housing situation in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal was NUTS, and now you might believe me!
House prices have gotten so expensive that ya can now buy HALF a house! in Toronto

A Nova Scotia man’s mysterious message in a bottle has washed ashore in Croatia — 28 years after it was sent.
Penned in 1985 to a woman named Mary, popped into a bottle and presumably tossed into the ocean, Jonathon’s letter travelled an incredible 6,000 kilometres to an unlikely destination in Croatia, reports Croatian newspaper Dubrovack Vjesnik.
“Mary, you really are a great person,” says the message. “I hope we can keep in correspondence. I said I would write. Your friend always, Jonathon, Nova Scotia, 1985.”
Did Johnny love Mary? Are they old friends? Is it a prank? No one knows. The vague note uses only first names and, obviously, has no postmarks.
Surfers discovered the half-broken bottle that contained the small, plastic-coated note under layers of leaves on a beach along the Adriatic Sea.
Jonathan’s letter would have had to make an incredible journey to get to its destination on the other side of the world, floating across the Atlantic Ocean, through the Mediterranean Sea and up the Adriatic Sea before washing up on the beach.
If only email had been around in 1985.
This last one is from our “Oh the poor son-of-a-bitch department!
LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Flavour Flav has a scheduling conflict between a court date in Las Vegas and his induction with the rap group Public Enemy into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The 54-year-old former rap and reality TV star is due for arraignment Thursday on felony charges that he chased and threatened his longtime girlfriend’s 17-year-old son with a butcher knife during an argument.
The Hall of Fame’s induction ceremony is also taking place Thursday, in Los Angeles.
Defence attorney Tony Abbatangelo has already asked a judge for a different arraignment date for his client, whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr.
Drayton faces felony assault with a weapon and child endangerment charges and a misdemeanour domestic violence battery charge.
Abbatangelo has said Drayton will plead not guilty.
Personally folks, I have never heard of the guy, so to put it into language that he would understand……………………….. “If they lock him n up, it don’t mean shit to me!”
