In media news, it's Super Bowl week. Be on the lookout for rehashes of previous year Super Bowl news, including "How Much Money Does The Super Bowl Cost in Terms of Lost Productivity?", and "Top 10 Craziest Super Bowl Halftime Shows" with Janet Jackson in the number one slot. She'll be there forever.
So in unrelated news, a friend of mine here in Kentucky has been challenged to drink a beer from every country that got into the World Cup. He's found most of them but is running into trouble with a few countries, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for the following:
- Algeria (do muslims drink beer?)
- Ivory Coast
- North Korea
Let me know.
