Wine is for Wimps

Real men don’t drink wine and eat cheese, they drink terrible beer. Not just terrible beer, but LIGHT terrible beer. Gotta watch the figure for the ladies. It’s the manly thing to do. So is staying in the kitchen and away from the women in the other room.

Budweiser has made some great commercials over the years, but that one was just plain stupid. Not that they are going to win over any discriminating beer drinkers anyway, but that probably didn’t even appeal to their base. Even Bud drinkers probably have enough sense to enjoy a hunk of cheddar and the company of women.

    I had the same reaction. Since when has not knowing anything about wine avoiding women helped make *anybody* manly??

    Exactly! Maybe it was the cheese that they found girly?

    Is this the “dude” ads, where the guy orders a white wine at a bar at the end and gets the stink-eye from uber-macho, piss-drinking buddy? Yeah, that one was major stupid.

    Having a glass of even the dumbest chardonnay on the planet is a better option than drinking that mass-produced crap.

    I love beer, but I like to actually *taste* my beer.

    That one is bad, too. This was the one where the guys show up for a dainty wine and cheese party but have their Bud Light stashed in fake cheese. Exceptionally dumb commercial.

    I’m with you on beer. With all of the choices available to the consumer, why would anyone drink that tasteless swill?
