I laughed way too hard at the headline.

Next time he won't biatch about his previous, tankless job.

Didn't this happen yesterday, too??

Really need to figure something out.

Drowning in Modelo? That's a horrible, horrible way to die. I'd take lingchi over that any day.

So tequila has a worm in the bottom of the bottle. I guess the marketing department for Corona wanted to try something similar but with twist.

My brother and I used to say that drowning in beer was like heaven, eh? Now he's not here, and I got two soakers... This isn't heaven, this sucks!

Did anyone read the article?

SEVEN people died in that vat. This would get an American company shut the F down.

Plant manager Francisco Lopez Bravo told local media the workers were trapped inside the cistern while doing maintenance work.


I hate my cistern, it's such a biatch
It acts as if it doesn't even know that I exist.
But I would do anything to let it know I care.
But i am only talking to myself 'cause it isn't there.

I miss my cistern.  I miss my cistern.
I miss my cistern.  I really miss it.

A-B buying Grupo Modelo would be a very crafty move.
 
2013-04-09 01:43:10 PM
investigators are looking into whether the workers died from inhaling toxic fumes.

Wait...so now Taco Bell is involved?
 
2013-04-09 01:43:40 PM
"Cervecería de Los Muertos" sounds cooler than "Grupo Modelo" anyway. Especially in a overly dramatic Mexican accent.

More proof that Fartbongo's regulations are suffocating American business.

Don't think I'll ever touch another modelo, or corona.  Not that I was ever in the habit anyway.  Now, I will just mentally associate them with LA hotel watertank.

Sad that people died.

No OSHA there I suppose.

Darn you socialist liberals, if businesses were free to police themselves this would have never happened!

I think I'll stay away from the N3gr0 Modelo for a while.

BTW...Damn good headline!
 
2013-04-09 01:47:53 PM
Again?!?! Thats 14 people in 2 days! We need shut these murderous beer factories down!!! The only thing soda ever did was rot your teeth.

tripleseven: Don't think I'll ever touch another modelo, or corona.



corona is a GREAAAAAAAAAAAAAT summertime brew;  one of those beers that tastes farking magical when it is 110 outside.

I like Negra Modelo when I have a big greasy plate of carne asada and rice and beans.  it is like a analogue to Guinness;  not a drinking beer per se, but a beer that begs to be had with a nice meal.

That amuses me entirely too much. It has to be the absolute laziest writing ever, "Hey, I want to kill this character off, but I need him for the story. F*ck it, he has a twin brother", but I still laugh every time.

Gil.  But you can call him Landfill, as a tribute to his brother.

rickythepenguin: not a drinking beer per se



What does that mean?

Negra Modelo sounds like the name of a guy Amnesty International spent 17 years trying to get freed.

A spokeswoman for city prosecutors says the accident occurred early Sunday and that investigators are looking into whether the workers died from inhaling toxic fumes.

First thing I thought of.

I read it as "beaver" which confused me. Still thinking "beaver" I clicked on the link and became more confused.

Bleach and ammonia is a bad combination.

Did you hear about Matt who fell into a vat
Well they say that he drowned but it took him a week
And they say that it wasn't as strange as all that
When you think that he kept getting out for a leak.

That's because American brewers care about the quality of their beer.

Well... American MICRObrewers do, anyway. There's no telling how many dead workers are floating in A-B's vats. I doubt anybody's looked in quite a while.

It's true, conservatives always point to Mexico as a perfect example of how our markets should be.
