At 50 bucks a pop I think I'll stick with Miller Lite.

I'll bet 18 of these ought to make for some interesting texting and/or Internet chats:

"Family holidays can be stressful. And hitting the hard liquor will just cause lips to be pursed and tuts to be tutted. But the solution is here in the form of 32 per cent alcohol beer.

"The beer is called Tactical Nuclear Penguin. The brewers, called BrewDog, are in Scotland. Both of these facts make perfect sense. The BBC report that it will sell for $50 a bottle and that the label will have the following warning:

'This is an extremely strong beer; it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. In exactly the same manner that you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost.'

"Expect to see it in the hands of homeless people, who will enjoy it with an air of desperate diligence like they would enjoy lighter fluid, stealing someone's shoes or a visit from a friendly yet anxious police officer."

I'd imagine you'd probably see more than anxious ghosts - probably a lot of anxious pink elephants.
