MNBeer is nothing, if not concerned for the mental and physical well-being of its readers. That’s why we take great pains to bring to you the most current, critical news of the local craft beer world. From time to time we need to ignore our provincial bias and share momentous news from outside our borders. Consider this a Public Service Announcement.
Check out this Associated Press story shared in the Pioneer Press regarding a new “smash-proof pint glass meant to reduce drinking injuries.” I especially like the quote, “Glassing causes horrific injuries and has a lasting and devastating impact on victims and their families.” Hell, things have apparently gotten so bad that they’ve coined a term for it – glassing. Outfrickenstanding! And then there is this line, “Officials swore the country would save billions in health care costs by coming up with a glass that doesn’t double as a lethal weapon.” Hell, maybe we don’t need health care reform.
I figure this P.S.A. outta earn MNBeer a Nobel Peace Prize, so go ahead and begin lobbying The Nobel Foundation.
