And now a Chinese beer is the most popular beer in the world, replacing Bud Light (the Thing of Beers).
The Chinese beer is apparently named Snow, possibly from the melamine flakes floating in it, and the Czar does not know anyone who drinks it.
It shall be so noted that the Czar does not know anyone who drinks Bud Light, either, although his money would be on GorTechie.
Thank goodness for soft news.
Update Update: The reason it’s popular in GorT’s neighborhood is that—and I stress I am not making this up—as his parish priest once said to his flock, “You are all a bunch of dysfunctional alcoholics!”
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
