It's all the same

Postby Jimbo » 16 Aug 2019, 14:07

Tonight my wife and I had dinner in a restaurant and I ordered a bottle of beer with two glasses. Which did I want, the waiter asked, Kirin Lager or Kirin "Ichiban Shibori." I ordered the lager. When we finished the lager, just to be crazy, I ordered the IS. Guess what? Kirin makes good beer but the two differently named beers tasted just about the same. It would have made no difference which one I ordered. It is all about marketing, I guess. Can you imagine the company board room where the executives are sitting there with two glasses of beer which taste so similar but they still have to create a campaign for each. Yikes!

Cheap wine or expensive wine, they're both wine. One doesn't taste like calves liver and the other wine.

You go to your favorite bar and order, "Whatever you have on tap."

Six of one. Half a dozen of another. Shits all the same.

That's what THEY want you to think. They get you when your guard's down. I saw it on the internet.

If you're ever in a nice restaurant, always order the house white or red rather than off the menu. Guess beer is now the same. have they stopped selling Duff bottled and draft down your way, Jimbo?

Remember how they said it was a good idea that Henry Ford sold the Model T in one color black and that they were all the same. The car was a hit. But now look at the variety of cars. I don't own a car but give me four wheels, four cylinders and a music player and I'm fine. Cars are basically all the same.

My cats tell me that all kibble tastes the same but that they like looking at the different bags.
