Words Made to Last

Thursday, November 24, 2005


I saw an interesting Budweiser ad in the London subway. The tagline was "You [i.e. the English] do the football, we'll do the beer." The text was a list of 20-some reasons why American football is risible or otherwise inferior to English "football" [soccer]. I wonder how that would play at home?

Well, I wasn't going to waste precious brain cells on a Budweiser anyway. Happy Thanksgiving!
