After reading this guest post by Owl Meat Gravy, all I have to say is, yuck:
Oh baby, you are the total package.
I'm talking about beer and cigarettes together. And not like the time that I took a swig from a bottle of Carlsberg Elephant that someone was using as an ashtray. If only you could combine them in one delicious synaptic cocktail.
Those crafty Germans have created NicoShot beer which contains 3 milligrams of nicotine alkaloids. NicoShot is brewed like regular beer, with a tobacco-leaf extract added at the end of the brewing process.
Sounds terrible! Nothing says fine German brewing like maker Nautilus GmbH Laboratoriumsbedarf.
You can almost taste the bedarf ...
The appeal to smokers who are banished from bars now seems obvious, but I just don't see it happening. Three cans of NicoShot have the amount of nicotine in a pack of Marlboros. Sweet slim Virginia Plain! That's a lot of nicotine.
The makers market it as nicotine replacement therapy, but I don't buy that for eine Minute. A six pack of that stuff might stop my heart. Someone will eventually create some form of OTC speedball like Nico-Red VodBullKa. Woohoo! Can I get a shot? An adrenaline shot!
Seriously. My heart is shutting down.
