Have a Drink!

Today's Gallery posting is devoted exclusively to beverages. Since for many people, what we drink helps to define who we are, I think that these entries are quite telling.

Here's an image sent to me by a Gallery-watcher in Fort Wayne, IN, someone keenly attuned to the phonetic absurdity of this product:

Yum! A bovine urinary treat!

This beverage is from Germany. What better image to sell a product called "Mystery Drink" than Michael Jackson?

I'm not exactly sure what's in this can. Apparently something "magical." But I wonder if it has anything to do with small boys? Perhaps La Toya Jackson knows.

I found this image at Paul Hardy's website, a wealth of weird Japanese drink-related products:

It's what all the hip postmodernists are drinking. I guess this product is supposed to come after "water," although I'm not sure what comes after "post water."

Here's another curious item provided by Paul Hardy, Pocari Sweat Refreshment Water:

I'll let Hardy's musings speak on this product: "What's a Pocari? Why does it sweat so much?"

Bottoms up!

Heh, I wondered about Pocari Sweat, too... had a few in Tokyo and I have to say: they are awesome! Full of sugar, sure, but refreshing as hell! (well, a frozen hell maybe.)
