Absolut Whack Job

7 August, 2012 | | 3 Comments

We’re down the shore in New Jersey, but I wanted to share this little gem – some loon has decided that he can clean his house with Vodka.  I was alerted to this the other day when SOBUMD forwarded this link:  http://www.stylelist.com/chris-barnes/5-new-uses-for-vodka_b_1432060.html 
My first thought was, you have got to be kidding.  This is how I should spend my hard-earned hooch?  Smirnoff Scrubbing?  Absolut Shine?  Let me tell you, if you’re busy buffing the bathroom with Belvedere, you have too much money.  You can gargle with Scotch, too.  Loon.

Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of brands of Vodka that I’d use for drain cleaner before I’d drink them, but I pretty much haven’t seen them since college.  These days, the idea of cleaning the house with vodka sounds more like a “Martini and a Duster” party than anything else.  Although I got SOBUMD a bottle of cucumber vodka the other day, in case she’d like that with her cucumber martini – if that turns out to have been a bad idea, maybe we’ll wash the boat with it. 

The link is actually worth checking out for the comments, though.

    He’s gotta be kidding. It’s a mortal sin to waste drinkable alcohol. In fact, according to an Irish tale, when you die, you’ll be suspended head down in a barrel containing all the alcohol you ever wasted. And if you drown, to hell with you.

    Did I mention I have Irish blood? :-)
