Today’s first two Pinterrible submissions come to us from gentle readers. First up:
I just don’t get how this is a thing. Lets face it, unless you live in New Orleans or historic Savannah or some other (awesome) place, most cities, parks, zoos and the like have open container laws. Not that these laws stop enterprising young college kids, but nonetheless, they exist. And this just seems…spill-y. We all know one of those bags is going to open right up and spill your vodka lemonade all over your hands and now you are booze-free and sticky. And the sliced lemon for aesthetic purposes….is this going to convince the police officer giving you an open container ticket to go easy on you? “Please Officer, see how Martha Stewart I am?”
This is worthy of Pinterest how?
Ok, this pin was invented by enterprising young college students, but, uh, this takes the drinking in public thing to a whole new level. Just exactly who do you think you are fooling? Are your refill beers cunningly tucked into the pouch pockets of your sorority hoodie sweatshirt? Please excuse my disdain, but knowing I might like to have a cocktail or twenty in public, I had the good sense to go to college in a town where there were no open container laws. It isn’t that this pin doesn’t depict a halfway decent idea for discreet boozers everywhere, but the fact that it became a Pinterest pin is just…dumb. This isn’t a DIY craft or pretty imagery, this is a trick handed down for generations among fraternity brothers. Also, drinking beer out of a straw? Yuck.
Shrimp in a cocktail?
That is just disgusting. End rant.
Spooky Halloween Libations
There are spooky Halloween cocktails and then there are disgusting unappealing creations photographed being held by someone with dirty fingernails. I hate to be a party pooper, but I don’t drink anything that resembles curdled milk vomit. Pinterest is a visual website, people understand that, yes?
