I didn't know PBR was available in England.

Who's importing Miller Lite? And why?

Dammit, too late to make a Coors Light joke.

Someone should send the cans to a drug testing lab.

That's not a nice thing to say about Mountain Dew
 
2022-10-03 2:11:58 AM  
That's some expensive Budweiser.

Well, there was that woman a while back selling her bathwater.

It's the circle of life!

The last time I was in London, I asked where I could purchase Prince Albert in a can. I got head butted.

It's been done, for literally decades.

That is way too expansive for a trucker bomb.

Yes, and the 60th anniversary of this was what inspired the canned piss, according to TFA.

There are photos elsewhere online, unlike in the article.

I know they love Stella Artois over there...

It's just conceptual art. Ignore it and it will go away.
 
2022-10-03 3:16:04 AM  
If it was a hot girls piss it would sell for 10x that and there would be a line of weirdos waiting to buy it.

Counter-point: it's one of the nicest things to say about Mountain Dew.

So you can throw it at the art inside the gallery?
 
2022-10-03 3:28:47 AM  
If you want overpriced piss just go to any pub in London.
 
2022-10-03 3:37:55 AM  
500 quid?

For those flush with cash I guess.
 
2022-10-03 4:07:12 AM  
I'll do you a deal, i'll sell you two cans of mine, for $50.
 
2022-10-03 4:23:16 AM  
Perfect, my shiat on a plate business will do gangbusters.

Let's make it performance art: for $50, I'll piss on Slaxl twice.

It doesn't look like a very tight seal. I'd expect better for 500 pounds.

I've been to the Tate modern, and I'd rather drink a gallon of piss than ever to go back.
 
2022-10-03 7:48:16 AM  
Too bad it is an "artist". Otherwise may be worthwhile to pass a drug test.

"I know it seems like nonsense (and it is!), but if you go and buy a can you will almost definitely make money on this if you auction it in a year or two."


"This piss has been in my family for generations, I wouldn't dream of selling it."

So, is the shiat super valuable now?

Need something to wash that down.
 
2022-10-03 10:01:09 AM  
Well, I hope they are at least selling it in pull-top cans, because not everyone carries a can opener.

It's just common sense marketing.
 
2022-10-03 10:33:47 AM  
I hope it explodes, like the canned shiat further upthread.

/The price can only go up!

I don't know why that made me laugh so hard.

I think the foil is just because it's hard to autograph an aluminum can. They're all sealed the way they should be.
