There have been calls in the United States for a boycott of certain beer brands . . . wait, try to contain your laughter . . . because the companies that make those beverages pulled their sponsorship of St. Patrick’s Day parades in New York and Boston after LGBT organizations were barred from openly participating. In other words, they were showing their support for LGBT groups who simply wanted to march with some sort of visible pride banner. The mayors of both cities also showed support for LGBT people by boycotting the parades.
I’m not going to mention names of those calling for the boycott or of the beer brands they want people to stop drinking. But they are saying the beer makers are bullies . . . and yadda yadda yadda . . .
Yes, I know I lost you right at the beginning of this post . . .
And, yes, I know it would take a lot more than this to get beer drinkers to even think about dropping their favourite brews.
But it is a rainy/snowy first day of spring, and we all need a good chuckle, yes?
