It’s the Awkwardly Inserted Product Placement Challenge. Remember the heady days of “Design a dress based on words people use to describe Yoplait brand yogurt?” Good times. And by that we mean, “painful times.”
We are all going to need to get SOOOOOO drunk for this one, aren’t we?
Definitely going to need multiple cocktails.
Which is good, because this week we’re moving on to ROUND 2 OF OUR “DESIGN A PROJECT RUNWAY SIGNATURE COCKTAIL” Contest, the winner(s) of which will receive an autographed copy of our book, Everyone Wants to Be Me or Do Me, which is hilarious and should be taught in schools worldwide. Here are the finalists of the competition (and/or your drinks menu for this evening, depending on how adventurous or depressed you’re feeling at the moment):
Organic Nation Vodka, Hansen’s Natural Blue Sky Soda, and starry-eyed wonderment. With (eco-friendly) glitter.
The Southern Discomfort
Absolut Peppar, SoCo, and Bitters, because SOMEBODY drew a moustache on your BABY.
Equal parts vodka, gin, rum, tequila, bourbon, scotch, brandy, peppermint schnapps, orange juice, cranberry juice, tomato juice, coke, 7-up, and seltzer. Garnished with 6 cherries, 2 orange slices, lemon wedges, lime wedges, and olives. When they spit it out, tell them it’s not your fault they don’t understand your vision.
The Tim and Andre
Bourbon and ginger beer. Serve with a Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuit.
by Jacob Bowen
One part blueberry flavored vodka, one part dirty water, served in a glass covered with a denim koozie. The drinker must refer to themselves in the third person.
by Kitten Mittons
Mix rum, bailey’s, wine, and some asparagus in a basket. Poor mixture over your head, wear basket for the rest of the night. Try to hide your erection brought on by your own creativity.
The Insane Crotch
Vodka, cranberry juice, and Tang. With a cherry.
The One Way Monkey
Stoli Vodka and Cream de Banana served with a Swarovski swizzle stick.
You have to vote for just one. It would be helpful if you typed your choice in all caps. Please don’t post and then ask if you can change your mind or say you’ll come back later to give your answer. Just pick one and type it in all caps in order to vote for it. You have until the opening of next week’s Project Runway thread to vote.
And of course, feel free to talk about whatever the hell else pops up, but especially about Project Runway and who you expect or need to go go home tonight.
