My fellow inebriates,
Today’s contribution to health/media literacy…
|COVID-19 coronavirus||Corona beer|
|A virus that’s taken the world by storm||A garbage beer that’s losing market share because of name-brand association|
|Countermeasure: hand-washing||Countermeasure: lime to hide the taste|
|Strength: usually mild; stronger if you’re older||Strength: usually mild; stronger if you have 10|
|Symptoms: sore throat, fever, shortness of breath||Symptoms: bad taste in mouth|
Despite such helpful distinctions, Corona continues to be maligned for all the wrong reasons.
Lest we heap scorn on people for being turned off Corona beer not because it’s crappy swill but because of name-brand association, remember the fate of Ayds candy. Some people think Corona should change its name.
That said, if you put a Corona in front of me (and opened it for me), I would drink it.
What do you think Corona should change its name to?
