(BBC)   Buckfast is a tonic wine with 15% alcohol and as much caffeine as 8 cans of Coke. Just about everyone has a problem with that: "Between 2010 and 2012 Buckfast was mentioned in almost 6,500 crime reports." Sound delicious   (bbc.co.uk) divider line 100

So it's the new Four Loko?

And beer wasn't mentioned in any.

The only response is clear: we must ban marijuana.

There must be caffeinated marijuana out there somewhere. If not, patent pending  semiotix.

Meanwhile, left-handed dwarves were mentioned in 7,500 crime reports.

Imagine the mayhem if those little guys got their stubby little hands on this sweet nectar.

We need curfews to KEEP THESE DAMNED KIDS OFF MY LAWN.

Also, since Captain Obvious isn't responding to the Obvious Signal, I'll just point out that drinking one of these is roughly equivalent to a venti Starbucks coffee and a generous swig of communion wine.

I've always wondered about the sanity of people who combine stimulants and depressants. That's got to mess with your heart.

...so can I order it or what?

Although it's supposedly brewed by monks, that stuff is how Satan recruits the young.

People are having a good time. We must ban this product and destroy its users FOR THE GOOD OF ALL MANKIND.
 
2014-02-01 11:59:00 AM
The second I read where it's produced by monks in an Abby, I knew production wasn't going to stop.

I wonder when they got the idea of adding caffeine to wine in the first place, which basically creates wide awake drunks? What's next -- caffeinated beer or ale?

Used to wake up that way with a roommate - we both worked second shift, so we'd smoke a bowl and chat over a pot of coffee. The best part of wakin' up, is coffee and tokin' up!

/and vibration action, but that's before getting out of bed. :D

Many breweries who don't have a bottling line on premise ship their product to a bottling plant the same way. They just don't slap their logo on the side.

Well, 'on behalf of the Abbey'...  the monks haven't actually made the stuff in years.  It's more like a trademark licensing deal.

Buckfast has become associated with anti-social behaviour in Scotland and has entered the popular lexicon with nicknames such as "Wreck the Hoose Juice", "Commotion Lotion"

Sounds like fun stuff.
 
2014-02-01 12:02:15 PM
How brilliant as usual... "If only we ban this particular intoxicant criminals will stop criming! There's no way that they'd just choose a different intoxicant because we're totally avoiding the actual cause of the problem."

FTFA: Buckfast contains 15% alcohol by volume and the same amount of caffeine in each bottle as in eight cans of Coke.

So the equivalent of a shot or two of booze in a large coffee causes big problems? PFFFT. Lightweights. For me that's breakfast.

I'm not a big fan of brews with several competing dominant flavors, but I think that is actually pretty decent stuff. If you've never tried Samuel Smith's products, give them a go. They make three of my favorites... Oatmeal stout, Taddy porter, and Stingo. Their nut brown and organic chocolate are also way up there

Stupid criminals. This is why we can't have nice things!
 
2014-02-01 12:15:56 PM
Other drinks that "caused crime" in recent years:

Ice beer (because of slightly higher alcohol content)

Wine coolers (because they tasted sweet and people "didn't know they were getting drunk")

Jagermeister (like the above, but people were trying to get drunk)

Red Bull and vodka (for pretty much the same reason as Buckfast)

Basically, "trendy drinks cause crime because drunk morons drink a lot of them and break the law."

Fluid: Mostly because it's the common delinquent's booze of choice.


If a bunch of hoodlums took to drinking Perrier they'd want to ban that too.

But as to the Abbey, the monasteries should have stayed dissolved. I'm not saying tolerating Papists is what caused the British Empire's decline, but it doubtless played a part. We in the American Empire should be wary of tolerating our versions of conspiracies masquerading as religions, such as the "Church" of $cientology. Everywhere Tom Cruise feels comfortable should be burned, razed and buried.
 
2014-02-01 12:19:52 PM
Was alcohol involved?
 
2014-02-01 12:29:22 PM
I miss the good old days when we mixed Jager and Red Bull.
 
2014-02-01 12:35:40 PM
Must be a slow news day... Buckfast keeps popping up every few months on "news" sites.
They were forced to change the bottles from glass to plastic, because the glass ones apparently shattered in a way that made them an instant shiv, which is probably bad if you just drunk the contents of said bottle.

/You're supposed to drink this stuff in moderation, not 5 bottles in 1 go...
