    pfft, that’s clearly teleological not emergent!

    also, very tasty.

    Guinness adverts ROCK.

    Made all the better by the fact that it is for a good beer.

    That’s so not accurate, and I so don’t care. Hilarious!

    Reminds me of the opening to the Dilbert cartoon, and the Simpsons evolution couch gag, which is much more accurate: boney fish -> therapsids -> marsupial -> primate

    This is one of my FAVORITE all time commercials. . . I have no problem believing that the entire rise of human evolution and civilization was in order to create a more perfect beverage than dirtwater.

    But if you want to see something REALLY incredible (and bizarre) check out that French Orangina ad with the animal people. I posted it on my Facebook the other day!

    So Jenbug, how do you explain light beer?

    I’m not sure what you mean, David S!
    Honestly, there are a few explanations for light beer that I’ve come across: ‘I’ve deadened my tastebuds to the point where this is palatable; I want quantity not quality; I grew up drinking this and never questioned it; I am fooling myself into believing this is better for me than ‘real’ beer; It was on sale, a 24-pack for 5.99; I am fiercely xenophobic and ‘import’ is a word that frightens me. . .’
