Did Twitter "light up" yet?  To be "controversial" implies that more than one person gives a sh*t, and there is some disagreement

Just call it "White Boy Ass fark Ballsack". People will piss about it anyway, but if it's good, I'll drink it.

Nah it has white boy in it. That's acceptable to rag on. If I ever open up a brewery I will definitely have a Belgian white ale named "White Trash" on tap.

Same to you pal.

Pretty sure the trademark only applies to rum.

Who checked their French? Bugs Bunny?

Ouvert is a adjective, not a verb.

Somebody "blue" it.

J'accused.

Does it coming from an overrated celebrity make booze better or something?

J'oubert is the gallicization of jou ouvè ( jour ouvert in standard French)

brantgoose: Ouvert


It says right in the article that it was derived from a Creole French term for daybreak.  Nicki found it offensive that a term for a carnival season celebration would be used as the name of a rum.

I thought this was about the basketball player at first, had to look up who Michael B. Jordan was.  Turns out Time magazine named him as one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2020.  Can't say he influenced me much, I'd never heard of him.
On the other hand I think I'll start making St. Patrick's DayTM Irish Whiskey and see if anyone complains.

I'm not a fan of the movie Without Remorse, a name that shall be from this day forth be engraved upon every bottom rung and low bar across the land.

/DNRTFA but I felt like I had to say something.

Meh.  Let me know when he finds Jean Valjean.

well, I can't say you've influenced me much, newbie,so why are you posting here?

/Jk, You're probably a drunk like me. You're home!

It's really only one of a few things:

It's ok to do it if you are rich.
It's ok to do it regardless of color.
It's ok to do it because of color.
It's not ok to do it, regardless of wealth.
It's not ok to do it, regardless of color.
It's not ok to do it because of color.

I don't even have a vote.
I really don't even farking care.
I'm to busy trying to manage my own difficult life.
I'll never buy the schitt: not a rum drinker and it's probably overpriced for the quality.
Whatever.

People would buy it just for the name.

J'ouvert thread! Where's the baby powder and used motor oil at?

I don't really have an opinion on this. I spoke with my Trini wife about it and she seemed to think the "cultural appropriation" arguments were bullshiat even though I thought they were valid in this particular case (release it on Juneteenth?! Trini Emancipation Day is August 1st! That's just the tip of the iceburg) but there's a reason for that -- as someone who was raised in the Caribbean she gets annoyed by US/UK-born "diaspora" folks who may have Caribbean parents but don't know what the Caribbean is really about. Not to mention African-Americans who are into pan-African shiat but don't bother really looking into Afro culture outside of the US too deep. They scream "culture vultures!" so much it becomes the boy who cried wolf at this point in her mind.

/I'm sorta rican so I'm kinda with her on that Caribbean shiat though, like if you're Puerto Rican people deadass ask you if you eat tacos and it's like "yeah, at Taco Bell, just like you"
