    And the relationship between vodka and gay rights is…?

    • BillP

      If you read the article, they were protesting Russia’a laws on homosexuality. They were dumping only Russian vodka .

      • Catskinner

        Well, I suppose that makes sense to them, but…

        • BillP

          BUT WHAT? A member of the Russian gov’t wants to arrest any gay tourist or competitor that comes to the 2014 Winter Olympics. That is part of the reason for the protest. I guess bozo below thought is was a waste of good tea back in 1773. The dumping of the vodka is a symbolic gesture but they may want to start a boycott of Russian products.

    Wish they had used some other substance, Don’t waste good vodka, use it in martis

    How utterly clueless… Do you honestly think the makers give a shit what these clowns do with the vodka…AFTER THEY’VE PAID FOR IT? The makers have gotten their money, so I’m fairly sure they couldn’t give a shit if these half-wits use it for enemas, dump it or drink it. Well thought out, there, clowns.

  • ObozoMustGo

    ohhhhhh brother…… how absurd can those dopes be? What a waste of good vodka.

    And now…. The REAL Cartoon Of The Day!

    Famous metropolitan disasters………………..

    Have a nice day!

    “The man of system . . . is apt to be very wise in his own conceit; and is often so enamoured with the supposed beauty of his own ideal plan of government, that he cannot suffer the smallest deviation from any part of it. He goes on to establish it completely and in all its parts, without any regard either to the great interests or to the strong prejudices which may oppose it. He seems to imagine that he can arrange the different members of a great society with as much ease as the hand arranges the different pieces upon a chess-board. . . .” —Adam Smith, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, 1759
