Monster Energy Cable to change labeling so products can qualify as a drink overpriced and useless. That's right, that swill those cables you were guzzling coerced into buying by your local brick and mortar store employee didn't even count as a drink inherently as good as the cables at Monoprice by this government's very lenient food communication standards

Whew. Fixed that to fit into another eventual greenlight. You're welcome

max_pooper: I've never had one of these non-food item Monster Energy Drinks.

My preferred method of "waking up" is getting sufficient sleep the night before.


Must be nice to have the luxury of doing that...

I work near a heavy agriculture area and in the morning I see the local crop pickers at the gas station all buying one or two monsters. I'm a pretty big fan of hydration, so I always wince at the thought of a no water, all monster day in the hot sun while picking squash.

Ninety-nine cents.


If the company makes money I guess they're doing it right. Personally, I see paying 99 cents for some carbonated liquid laced with caffeine and sugar to be kind of a waste so I'll skip that.

The best thing about knowing what taurine is is that you don't have to talk to a cat owner.

star_topology: I can't wait until we look back on these energy drinks in the same way we look back on cigarettes.


Yeah, I can't wait till we're all eating tofu and raw celery and living in padded cells either.

crabsno termites: fanbladesaresharp: How about a paycheck given to government workers?

Gov't check = convertible to US currency.  Currency backed by "the full faith and credit . . ."

/I ain't got no faith in them and their credit ain't very good.


Republicans playing games notwithstanding, the US has some of the best credit in the world. Anyone who says otherwise is deceiving you.

I used to drink Mtn Dew 44oz big gulps when I was younger and more stupid.  I don't drink any of those types of products any longer now that you can get off my lawn.

But, we had half a pallet of "double shot, r*star" left over, (like 24oz cans!!) and most of the people that wanted the r* Bull tried a can.  They said they tweaked so much they wouldn't touch the rest of it.  I also think that the r* Bull cola product didn't taste too good.  Maybe if you mixed some vodak??

I love how "energy drinks" like to brag about how few calories they contain without any trace of irony.

TFA says taurine is a little-known additive. How does anybody not know what taurine is? You know, the thing your cat MUST eat to prevent blindness?
